Preimplantation genetic diagnosis is a very early form of prenatal diagnosis aimed at eliminating embryos carrying serious genetic diseases before implantation. The basic techniques currently used involve embryo biopsy, the polymerase chain reaction and fluorescence in situ hybridization. In the current review, a number of problems arising from the use of these technologies as well as the possible solutions and new developments are discussed.
