Neurological findings in the fetal alcohol syndrome.

Author information

  • 1Department of Neurology, Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn, New York 11203.


Five children with fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), ranging in age from 2 1/4 to 10 years, were noted to have abnormal neurological findings. These were mainly cerebellar. Others were attention deficit disorder in three, mental retardation in two, and epilepsy in one. The neuropathology seen in FAS provides a more than adequate basis for the clinical findings. Children with FAS, or a history of in utero alcohol exposure, and abnormal neurological signs, do not need investigation.
