Case report

29-year-old low risk patient underwent first trimester combined screening for fetal aneuploidies (ultrasound + maternal serum biochemistry). The test result was considered normal; ultrasound revealed no abnormalities. 

A subsequent second trimester ultrasonographic examination revealed the findings that can be seen on the images and videos below. In view of the findings, a genetic amniocentesis was proposed to the patient. Classical cytogenetics (GTG banding) revealed normal female karyotype and had failed to 
explain the observed abnormalities. Definitive molecular diagnosis was done only after delivery. The affected girl lived 9 days.
