We present prenatal diagnosis of hydrancephaly and enlarged cerebellum and cisterna magna in a fetus with thanatophoric dysplasia type II (TD2) and a review of prenatal diagnosis of brain anomalies associated with TD.
The aim of the study was to determine whether the biparietal diameter/femur length (BPD/FL) ratio can be used to detect thanatophoric dysplasia in the first trimester of pregnancy.
