Case report

This is a case of Gordon syndrome characterized by cleft palate, clubfoot and camptodactyly. All these findings were detected by the ultrasound prenatally and confirmed after delivery.

Images 3,4: Image 3 shows nose and lips, lips are intact without any signs of cleft. Image 4 uses color Doppler to demonstrate the fetal breathing. There is a defect of the palate (arrow) and the amniotic fluid leaks through this defect in the roof of mouth into a oral cavity. Majority of the fluid flows via the nasapharynx.
