Case report
A 27-year-old woman (G3P1), with non-contributive history, was referred to our department after her third trimester scan due to multiple congenital anomalies and suspicion of Edward syndrome. The patient’s first child was healthy.
No anomalies were detected during the 12 weeks scan with low risk of aneuploidies. 
The pregnancy course was unremarkable with normal fetal growth rates as reported by patient. 

At 34 weeks 4 days of pregnancy our ultrasound examination was difficult because of polyhydramnios (AFI 37,7 sm), but revealed the following findings:
