Cinquantenaire de la trisomie 21
Retour sur une découverte
Fiftieth anniversary of the trisomy 21: return on a discovery
6, rue de Douai, 75009 Paris, France
Fifty years ago, I was co-author of the first paper asserting the presence of a supernumerary chromosome in Down’s syndrome (called « mongolism » in France at that time). This first autosomal chromosomal abnormality was called Trisomy 21. It seemed to me historically interesting to bring my own testimony as an actor in this discovery.
