Abstract

The femoral hypoplasia-unusual facies syndrome is a very rare association of femora and facial abnormalities. The most common features include hypoplasia of the femora and a characteristic facies with a short nose, long philtrum, thin upper lip and micrognathia. Maternal diabetes mellitus has been mainly identified as the causal agent. We reported the first case in a black African and discuss prenatal diagnosis and aetiology.
