Fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) and other fetal alcohol effects in children are characterized by life-long compromises in growth, health, behaviour and cognitive ability. Most of the structural signs and many behavioural signs of FAS are evident at birth. This review describes the expression of fetal alcohol effects in neonates, including diagnostic criteria, alcohol withdrawal, pregnancy outcome, growth retardation, facial dysmorphology and behavioural outcomes.
