Case report
  
This is a case of a 30-year-old woman, G5P2, with non-contributive family and personal history who was referred to our department at 15 weeks of gestation.

Her first previous pregnancy was uncomplicated with normal outcome. The follow-up pregnancy resulted in pregnancy termination due to a lethal skeletal dysplasia diagnosed at 24 weeks of gestation. Although not well visualized on the images the fetus had polydactyly.
 
The patient decided for the termination of the pregnancy based on the ultrasound findings below. The pathology examination confirmed our diagnosis.

Images 1-9: 15 weeks.
