Luís Flávio Gonçalves, MD

Clínica Materno-Fetal,  and Universidade do Vale do Itajaí, Itajaí, Brazil

The following images were obtained in a 3rd trimester fetus. Aside from the cranial finding, some images suggested the presence of a coarctation of the aorta. Due to the baby"s position good images could not be obtained. Some anomalies were only recognized after birth. In particular the child had a large deep red/purplish cutaneous lesion on the same side as the CNS lesion below. A cataract could also have been present.
