Venezuela

Case report
A 32-year-old patient, (2G IP) was sent to our office at 27 weeks of pregnancy due to  polyhydramnios.
We noticed absent fetal movements and obtained the following images in 2D and 3D, confirming the polyhidramnios.
We also noticed severe contracture of the hands and feet. Based on the typical ultrasound appearance we suggested the 
diagnosis of multiple pterigium syndrome, and it was confirmed postnatally by our genetist.
