Fetal ultrasound examination at 29 weeks' gestation revealed a severely symmetrically growth-retarded fetus with microcephaly, hypertelorism, and hypoplastic genitalia with a two-vessel umbilical cord. G-banding analysis on amniotic cell cultures revealed a 46, XY,r(4)(p15-q35) karyotype in each of the colonies analyzed. This prenatal diagnosis, to our knowledge the first reported, assisted clinical management of this pregnancy.
