Anomalies of the kidneys and genitourinary tract in alcoholic embryopathy.


in addition to the well known major signs of growth retardation, microcephaly, mental retardation and typical craniofacial dysmorphism, malformations of the urinary tract were found in 9 of 110 patients with alcohol embryopathy. Of the 110 patients 21 have been examined adequately. An extensive urologic investigation of children with alcohol embryopathy and symptoms suggesting kidney or genitourinary tract disease is essential for early diagnosis and correction of malformations. Awarness of alcohol embryopathy in a child referred for correction of urinary tract anomalies may help to establish the diagnosis and prevent it in further offspring.
