Prenatal sonographic appearance of Beare-Stevenson cutis gyrata syndrome: two- and three-dimensional ultrasonographic findings

Prenat Diagn. 2001 Aug;21(8):665-7. doi: 10.1002/pd.136.


Beare-Stevenson cutis gyrata syndrome is characterized by craniofacial anomalies, particularly craniosynostosis, ear defects, cutis gyrata, acanthosis nigricans, anogenit anomalies, skin tags, and prominent umbilical stump. The prenatal two- and three-dimensional ultrasonographic findings of this rare condition is reported. The detection was made at 32 weeks of gestation in a woman with polyhydramnios and fetal head anomaly. The ultrasound appearance and postnatal follow-up are presented.
