The 11th report of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis Consortium is presented, documenting cycles collected for the calendar year 2008 and follow-up of the pregnancies and babies born until October 2009 which resulted from these cycles. Since the beginning of the data collections, there has been a steady increase in the number of cycles, pregnancies and babies reported annually. For data collection XI, 53 centres have participated, reporting on 5641 cycles to oocyte retrieval (OR), along with details of the follow-up on 1418 pregnancies and 1169 babies born. A total of 774 OR were reported for chromosomal abnormalities, 96 OR for sexing for X-linked diseases, 1363 OR for monogenic diseases, 3401 OR for preimplantation genetic screening and 5 OR for social sexing. Data XI is compared with the cumulative data for data collections IX.
