Fetal musculoskeletal malformations with a poor outcome: ultrasonographic, pathologic, and radiographic findings.

Lee SH, Cho JY, Song MJ, Min JY, Han BH, Lee YH, Cho BJ, Kim SH - Korean J Radiol (2002 Apr-Jun)

Bottom Line: The early and accurate antenatal diagnosis of fetal musculoskeletal malfomations with a poor outcome has important implications for the management of a pregnancy.Careful ultrasonographic examination of a fetus helps detect such anomalies, and a number of characteristic features may suggest possible differential diagnoses.During the last five years, we have encountered 39 cases of such anomalies, and the typical prenatal ultrasonographic and pathologic findings of a number of those are described in this article.

Short-rib dysplasia with polydactyly in a 21-week fetus.A. Sagittal image shows a narrow thorax and relatively protuberant abdomen (arrows).B. There is an extra digit (6) lateral to the fifth finger.C, D. Autopsy photographs show a narrow thorax with short ribs, a protuberant abdomen, micromelia, and postaxial polydactyly (arrow).

Figure 5: Short-rib dysplasia with polydactyly in a 21-week fetus.A. Sagittal image shows a narrow thorax and relatively protuberant abdomen (arrows).B. There is an extra digit (6) lateral to the fifth finger.C, D. Autopsy photographs show a narrow thorax with short ribs, a protuberant abdomen, micromelia, and postaxial polydactyly (arrow).

Mentions: Asphyxiating thoracic dysplasia is characterized by a long narrow thorax, rhizomelic limb shortening, hypoplastic iliac wings, horizontal acetabular roofs, cystic renal disease, hepatic fibrosis and polydactyly (14) (Fig. 5).
