Transcervical cell (TCC) sampling is being investigated as a promising method for obtaining fetal cells for prenatal genetic diagnosis. The present case report describes the identification of fetal cells by both fluorescent in situ hybridisation (FISH) and quantitative fluorescent polymerase chain reaction (QF-PCR) analyses in a TCC sample collected by intrauterine lavage at 5 + 0 weeks. This finding underscores the possible relevance of TCC sampling for extremely early prenatal genetic diagnosis.
