    Hartling et al found that the outer and inner bi-iliac distances were significantly shorter in UTS (n=24) fetuses which also suggests a different growth pattern in them.
    9 fetuses with extensive neck hygroma were included in this study.
    The occurrence of unilateral or bilateral cervical ribs in UTS is useful characteristic of this condition.

    On the basis of a study of 16 monosomy X cases among 6,262 births it is hypothesized that the association observed between young maternal age and 45,X births may be intrinsic to pregnancies of young woman or it may be due to experiences which are commoner in young women.

    Ultrasound examination at 15 weeks in a case of MZ twins in a 19 year old primigravida showed one to have cystic hygroma and hydrops fetalis.
    At 26 weeks this twin died. The second twin pregnancy was terminated at 29 weeks after detection of abnormal intracranial anatomy including multiple echo-poor cystic areas.

    Humara (human androgen receptor) assay using three Y-specific primer pairs representing the centromere, Yp11.3, and Yq12 was used. 2/18 patients were found to have a low frequency cryptic X chromosome mosaicism.
    18 patients were studied.
