OBJECTIVES Mutations in the tafazzin (TAZ) gene at chromosomal locus Xq28 are responsible for Barth syndrome (BTHS), X-linked endocardial fibroelastosis (EFE), X-linked fatal infantile dilated cardiomyopathy (CMD3A), and familial isolated noncompaction of left ventricular myocardium (INVM). This evaluation was performed to determine if a known familial TAZ gene mutation might present with abnormal fetal cardiac pathology findings as early as the second trimester of pregnancy.
