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 0003: Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome. Prenatal 3D USG image (a) and postnatal picture of the face (b) show a prominent glabella. Partial karyotype (c) shows 4p deletion (arrow)

Mentions: Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome: (chromosomal - 4p deletion) Lead clue is severe early-onset IUGR with normal Doppler findings. Other features include ‘Greek helmet’ facial appearance with prominent glabella, rectangular nose, downturned mouth, hypospadias, cardiac and urinary tract defects [Figure 3].Figure 3 (a–c)
