Non-mosaic trisomy 20 is a rare trisomy and almost all affected fetuses do not survive past the first trimester of the pregnancy. Severe abnormalities are frequently present in these embryos. We report the case of prenatally diagnosed non-mosaic trisomy 20 with only minor anomalies in the fetus. At external examination of the fetus we detected only low-set ears and no other abnormalities. Internally, all organs appeared normal macroscopically.
