This is a routine examination of a female fetus in the 21st week of pregnancy: normal biometry and 2 skintags. One preauricular and one next to the mouth on the chin.
 
Outcome: female infant at term with 3 skintags (it never revealed its right side prenatally so the preauricular tag on the other side was only seen postnatally)  with Townes-Brocks syndrome.
