Case report
 

A 28-year-old woman (G2P1), was referred to our antenatal unit at 24 weeks of her pregnancy. Her first child is two years old, with blue scleras, but so far without any other symptoms or problems. Unfortunately the parents refused any other examinations of the child. 

The husband suffers from a mild form a disease that we presumed in the fetus. Karyotyping revealed a normal 46,XX fetus and serological tests (TORCH and Chikungunya infections) were negative.
