We report a male neonate with a 45 X karyotype; the long arm of a chromosome 15 was translocated onto the proximal long arm of the Y chromosome. Breakpoints were identified by in situ fluorescence hybridization (FISH) on the proximal 15q13 and Yq11.2. The derivative chromosome has no primary centromere. Clinical features were compatible with Prader-Willi syndrome. This is the first report case of monosomy 15q and Yq deletion with Prader-Willi syndrome.
