Robinow's syndrome: prenatal diagnosis

Prenat Diagn. 1990 Feb;10(2):121-6. doi: 10.1002/pd.1970100208.


The prenatal diagnosis of Robinow's syndrome was accomplished in our case by measuring the length of the long bones and the ulna/humerus ratio. Although the prenatal sonographic appearance did not show the typical 8-week fetal face, pathological findings confirmed this particular feature. In view of the strongly suggestive family history, the authors consider the possible mechanisms of genetic inheritance.
