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.

Pseudo-TORCH syndrome. Fetal cardiomegaly (a), elevated middle cerebral artery velocity (greater than 1.5 MoM) (b), fetal splenomegaly (arrows in c) and fetal periventricular calcification (arrowheads in d) are seen. Fetal cranial MRI (e) shows cerebral atrophy. All these features coupled with a negative maternal serology for infection, are diagnostic

Figure 0009: Pseudo-TORCH syndrome. Fetal cardiomegaly (a), elevated middle cerebral artery velocity (greater than 1.5 MoM) (b), fetal splenomegaly (arrows in c) and fetal periventricular calcification (arrowheads in d) are seen. Fetal cranial MRI (e) shows cerebral atrophy. All these features coupled with a negative maternal serology for infection, are diagnostic

Mentions: Pseudo-TORCH syndrome: (AR) Lead clue is cerebral atrophy with periventricular and basal ganglia calcification. Other features include microcephaly, hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, and thrombocytopenia [Figure 9]. Cordocentesis to prove absence of fetal infection and presence of thrombocytopenia is indicated. Fetal MRI would be of help to confirm cerebral atrophy. Differential diagnoses of Aicardi-Goutiere's syndrome and TORCH infection may be considered.Figure 9 (a–e)
