The etiology of the fetal akinesia deformation sequence (FADS) is heterogeneous and can be the result of neurogenic and myopathic disorders, restrictive dermopathy, teratogen exposure, and intrauterine constraint. We present the prenatal and fetopathological findings in a consecutive series of 30 affected fetuses with normal chromosomal results. According to the in utero time of onset of the fetal akinesia, the severity of the phenotype varied from a severe, generalized FADS in the early-onset… CONTINUE READING
