The article presents a study which explored euploid miscarriage's frequency among obese women with recurrent early pregnancy loss (REPL). Methods include data collection from the subjects with REPL history, conventional cytogenetic analysis, and comparative genomic hybridization. Results revealed the higher frequency of euploid miscarriage among women who are obese than those who are not.
