ABSTRACT
A syndrome is a pattern of multiple anomalies arising due to a single known causative factor. Ultrasonography has enabled us to recognize many fetal anomalies and dysmorphic features. Recognition of the anomaly pattern leads to the diagnosis of a particular syndrome. This enables us to counsel prospective parents and aids in management. We present a selection of fetal syndromes in the form of a pictorial essay.

Figure 0002: Walker-Warburg syndrome. Axial sections of the fetal cranium show occipital encephalocele (arrow in a) and absent sulci (b). Parasagittal section of the fetal orbit (c) shows retinal detachment (arrowhead). Autopsy picture of the fetal brain (d) demonstrates agyria

Mentions: Walker-Warburg syndrome: (AR) Constituent anomalies are hydrocephalus, agyria (lissencephaly type II), retinal detachment, encephalocele (HARD +/− E syndrome). Other features include cataract, micro-ophthalmia, buphthalmos, and congenital muscular dystrophy [Figure 2].Figure 2 (a–d)
