Achondroplasia, video clip

This is a video-clip of a fetus with a confirmed gestational age of 35 weeks. The measurements of all the fetal limbs correspond to 25-26 weeks. Frontal bossing is also seen. The fetal chest is small in comparison to the abdomen. The fluid is slightly increased. Also note the short stubby digits and Michelin-man appearance. The child is now 3-years old and is doing well.

These are the antenatal scans demonstrating the same.
