Case report

A 32-year-old woman (G3P2) was referred to our center at 13 weeks + 5 days of her pregnancy.  Her first child had patent foramen ovale and prolapse of the mitral and tricuspid valves. She took some antiallergic drugs in early stage of the pregnancy. Her husband and his brother and uncle have congenital colobomas of iris.

The first trimester screening was normal (risk of trisomy 21 – 1:321, risk of trisomy 18 – 1:10 000, HCG 0,82 MoM, PAPP-A 0,92). Subsequent amniocentesis was also done, revealing normal karyotype (46, XX).
