CHMs are purely androgenetic conceptions (only paternal genetic material is present) and usually diploid (2 paternal chromosome complements without a maternal chromosome complement) (16); most result from fertilization of an ovum devoid of maternal genetic material by a single sperm that duplicates (monospermy; ~85%), (17-19) but a subset is due to fertilization by 2 sperm (dispermy).
