Résumé : The examination of the product of conception after spontaneous abortion reveals that in about 60% of cases a chromosome abnormality is present, and that in only 1% of cases the abnormality is transmitted by parents. This survey deals with 381 cases of spontaneous abortion, and 670 cases of abortion induced for psychological or socioeconomical reasons, and with the cytogenetic examination of the aborted materials to study the anatomo-pathological modifications of the embryo. 29.23% of the embryos examined in the first series presented chromosome abnormalities, ranging, in decreasing order, from trisomies, to triploidies, to monosomies, compared to only 1.93% in the second series. It must be noted that this kind of examination often presents serious difficulties of interpretation.
