Bone marrow transplantation may be life-saving in case of hematopoietic disease, severe congenital immunodeficiency or malignancy. A HLA-matching sibling often gives the best success, but this may not be an option, nor may a HLA-matching unrelated donor be found. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis with HLA-matching embryos may then be a solution. We report the first Danish child born after such diagnosis with identification of healthy embryos and HLA-matching for a sibling with chronic granulomatous disease. Our patient had 13 IVF cycles, 286 oocytes were collected, analyzing 74 embryos. Sixteen of these (22%) were either healthy or carriers. Five embryos were transferred in four stimulated fresh IVF cycles. Four embryos were frozen, and two transferred at blastocyst stage. Two successive clinical pregnancies ensued. In the first, prenatal diagnosis revealed trisomy 21, and the fetus was aborted. In the second pregnancy CVS revealed a normal karyotype, the diagnosis was confirmed, and the pregnancy was normal. At delivery 82 ml of cord blood was collected for later transplantation to the diseased sibling.
