Abstract :
[en] With the improved resolution of ultrasound machines, fetal limb studies can be conducted early in pregnancy. The finding of a “short femur” (<3rd centile) on ultrasound prompts obstetricians to initiate antenatal investigations to allow better counseling about the prognosis of the newborn. The following workup is indicated: advanced ultrasound to identify various characteristics of the fetus, amniocentesis for karyotyping and genetic analysis for bone diseases, and serial imaging of the skeleton at birth.
