Asphyxiating thoracic dysplasia (ATD), or Jeune syndrome, is an uncommon autosomal recessive skeletal disorder characterized by a small thorax, varying degrees of rhizomelic brachymelia, polydactyly, pelvic abnormalities, and renal anomalies. We describe prenatal sonographic examinations in the third trimester of a fetus with abnormal small thorax, short(More)
A morphology based imaging review is presented of the characteristic skeletal deformities associated with acardius anceps in three acardiac twins. These fetuses demonstrated poorly developed skulls, limb reduction defects, and phocomelia of the upper limbs, as well as narrow thoracic cages with or without the complete development of ribs, clavicles,(More)
Aerodynamic characteristics such as the flow patterns, velocity field, streamline evolutions, characteristic flow modes and characteristic flow regimes of the push-pull ventilation system are cross-examined by using the laser-light sheet smoked-flow visualization method and laser Doppler velocimetry. Four characteristic flow modes, which are denoted as(More)
Cebocephaly and sirenomelia are uncommon birth defects. Their association is extremely rare; however, the presence of spina bifida with both conditions is not unexpected. We report on a female still-birth with cebocephaly, alobar holoprosencephaly, cleft palate, lumbar spina bifida, sirenomelia, a single umbilical artery, and a 46,XX karyotype, but without(More)
We report on the prenatal diagnosis of a case of cebocephaly, alobar holoprosencephaly, and microcephaly associated with a de novo proximal interstitial deletion of the long arm of chromosome 14: del(14)(q13q21.1) or (q13q21.2). This is the third case of holoprosencephaly in association with a deletion in this region. The present report concerns the(More)
We report on a case of duplicated hydrometrocolpos with uterus didelphys, a septate vagina, lower vaginal atresia, a persistent urogenital sinus, left ear agenesis, a single umbilical artery, and an imperforate anus, but without the associated features of McKusick-Kaufman syndrome such as polydactyly and congenital heart defects. Ultrasound-guided fluid(More)
A sireniform infant presented with an uncommon osseous fusion of the lower limbs characterised by a fused femur, a partially fused tibia and sympus dipus with rudimentary digits and metatarsals. Associated abnormalities included sacral agenesis, a deformed pelvis, anorectal atresia, renal agenesis, cystic renal dysplasia, agenesis of the uterus and urinary(More)
The pre- and postnatal findings of a fetus with a de novo del(13)(pter-->q21:) and an occipital encephalocoele are described. Maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) screening at 19 weeks' gestation demonstrated a high level of 2.5 multiples of the median (MOM) and ultrasonography at 27 weeks' gestation showed severe intrauterine growth retardation,(More)
We report the prenatal diagnosis, pathology, cytogenetics, and molecular studies of a retroperitoneal fetus in fetu. Prenatal ultrasonography of the host fetus in the third trimester showed an anencephalic, acardiac mass with identifiable extremities and spine within an intra-abdominal cystic mass. Pathological examination revealed a fetiform mass weighing(More)
