Case report:
This patient had been referred to our hospital at 23 weeks of gestational age for abnormal bone findings.

This was her fifth pregnancy. Among the previous four pregnancies, she reported a case of intrauterine death at 23 week of pregnancy for fetal “dwarfism”. The whole story was unclear, it happened in another hospital and we were unable to retrieve the medical datafiles.
There was no reported consanguinity and both parents were healthy without any obvious particular features. 

Our US examination at 23 week 5 days revealed the following anomalies.
We also performed a fetal CT scan at 28 weeks of gestation.
