    The article discusses the alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and prenatal detection of defects on neural tube in the U.S. The alpha-fetoprotein is accepted as an essential tool for the early detection of open neural tube defects. There are reasons regarding how the AFP test may be used and monitored like...

    Amniotic band syndrome comprises a group of fetal malformations of varying severity. Malformations may be minor, causing constriction rings in the fetus or major, being incompatible with post-natal life or causing fetal death. In this article we describe a case of prenatal ultrasound diagnosis...

    We describe a patient with complete chorioamniotic membrane separation (CMS). During embryologic development, the chorionic and amniotic membranes each arise from their own germ layers and form a celomic cavity in the first trimester of pregnancy. By the early second trimester, the cavity has...
