  • Figure 1
    Blomstrand osteochondrodysplasia: prenatal sonographic findings
     

    Prenatal sonographic examination at 26 weeks of gestation demonstrating a very short femur (arrows), measuring 21mm, below the 5th standard deviation.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Blomstrand osteochondrodysplasia: prenatal sonographic findings;

    Same fetus; transverse section demonstrating a narrow thorax (arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Blomstrand osteochondrodysplasia: prenatal sonographic findings;

    Interorbital (arrows) upper view of the fetus demonstrating a depressed nasal bridge (arrowhead).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Blomstrand osteochondrodysplasia: prenatal sonographic findings;

    Sagittal section of the fetus demonstrating hydrops fetalis associated with a distended abdomen with ascites.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Blomstrand osteochondrodysplasia: prenatal sonographic findings;

    Section of the fetus demonstrating an in-curved lower limb (arrowheads) and bilateral hydrocele vaginalis (arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Blomstrand osteochondrodysplasia: prenatal sonographic findings;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Post-abortum aspect of the fetus
     

    The face is infiltrated by oedema, the nasal bridge is depressed, the tongue is swollen and protruding out of the mouth.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Post-abortum aspect of the fetus;

    Post-abortum aspect of the fetus demonstrating short and in-curved lower limbs.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Post-abortum aspect of the fetus;

    Post-abortum plain film radiogram of the fetus
     

    The X-ray demonstrates overall increased bone density and advanced skeletal maturation.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Post-abortum plain film radiogram of the fetus;

    Same fetus; the radiogram demonstrates increased bone density and advanced maturation of the bones.
