Cytogenetic heteromorphisms are described as heritable variations at specific chromosomal regions without phenotypic effect. Polymorphisms of the size of heterochromatic centromeric regions of chromosomes 1, 9 and 16 have been well documented in humans but only four previous reports described centromeric polymorphism of chromosome 6. We present a prenatal diagnosis of a rare de novo centromeric chromosome 6 variant. Cytogenetic and molecular techniques were used to characterize this variant and confirm the de novo nature of this event. This case illustrates the importance of reporting unusual variant chromosomes for genetic counseling and for determination of the frequency of variant chromosomes in the general population.
