Tetraectrodactyly and other skeletal manifestations in the fetal alcohol syndrome


Most of the attention concerning the manifestations of the fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) has been focused on prenatal and postnatal growth retardation, the facial appearance, central nervous system abnormalities, heart malformations, and certain minor physical abnormalities such as hemangiomas, hirsutism, and abnormal auricles. We would like to call attention to the skeletal abnormalities of the fetal alcohol syndrome, including the major malformations such as tetraectrodactyly, cleft palate and club feet, and the very characteristic shortness of metatarsals and metacarpals.
