Author information

Department of Radiology and Radiological Sciences, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, MD 21205.


Sonographic demonstration of a lethal fetal anomaly may dramatically alter obstetrical management. For example, cesarean section for fetal distress may not be performed if it is known that the fetus will not survive outside the uterus. The author describes the common fetal anomalies that are predictably fatal.
