A case of fetal skelectal anomaly of Campomelic syndrome

Abstract

Campomelic syndrome is a very rare skeletal dysplasia with a characteristic pattern of deformity involving the proximal and distal extremities, pelvic and shoulder girdles, thoracic cage and palate. Respiratory compromise often leads to death in early infancy. Etiology has not been determined although evidence suggests genetic heterogeneity. Cytogenetic study revealed high incidence of a 46,XY karyotype in phenotypic females. Recently, we had experienced a case of campomelic dysplasia at amenorrhea 30weeks and termination was done, so we report with a brief review of literature.
