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 0004: Turner syndrome. Axial section of the fetal thorax (a) shows bilateral pleural effusions. Axial section of the fetal cranium (b) shows a cystic hygroma. Interphase FISH shows a single X chromosome (green fluorescent dot) in each amniocyte

Mentions: Turner syndrome: (Chromosomal - monosomy X – 45X0) The main feature is cystic hygroma. Other features include hydrops, IUGR, coarctation of aorta, and horseshoe kidney. Fetal karyotyping clinches the diagnosis [Figure 4]. Differential diagnosis includes Noonan syndrome.Figure 4 (a–c)
