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.

Crouzon syndrome. Axial and coronal sections of the fetal cranium (a) show a fused coronal suture and a clover-leaf calvarium. Coronal section of the face (B) shows prominent orbits. Surface rendering of fetal face (c) shows proptosis. Anteroposterior radiograph of the skull (d) and postabortal picture (e) of the abortus show typical features

Figure 0007: Crouzon syndrome. Axial and coronal sections of the fetal cranium (a) show a fused coronal suture and a clover-leaf calvarium. Coronal section of the face (B) shows prominent orbits. Surface rendering of fetal face (c) shows proptosis. Anteroposterior radiograph of the skull (d) and postabortal picture (e) of the abortus show typical features

Mentions: Crouzon syndrome: (AD) Lead clues are craniosynostosis, frontal bossing, proptosis, and hypertelorism. Other features include beaked nose and cloverleaf skull. Differential diagnoses will include other craniosynostosis syndromes like Pfeiffer, Apert, Carpenter, or Sathre-Chotzen syndromes [Figure 7].Figure 7 (a–e)
