The sex chromatin pattern in two series of newborn babies comprising 2058 males and 1832 females was studied to find the incidence of sex chromatin anomalies. We did not detect a single case of sex chromatin discordance when compared with the phenotypical sex. In this respect our survey differed from similar surveys in Canada, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland.
