Triploidy is a condition in which an individual has an extra set of chromosomes, which amount to 69 chromosomes in each cell. This may be caused when an egg is fertilized by two sperm or if the sperm or egg has a full set of chromosomes before fertilization. Triploidy occurs in 1-2% of all conceptions, and is fatal to the infant. Most individuals with triploidy are miscarried in early pregnancies or die before or right after birth. Triploidy cannot be treated or cured because of the fatality rate of the disease. Infants who survive after birth have severe birth defects and only live for a few days. Triploidy is not genetic and has no risk factors, but can be diagnosed through a karyotype.
