Proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD) represents a rare and complex deformity manifested by hyoplasia of variable portion of the femur with shortening of the entire limb. The condition may be unilateral or bilateral and is often associated with other congenital anomalies. The recent technological advances in ultrasound imaging offer the opportunity to detect an increasing number of rare but detectable skeletal malformation syndromes and their correct diagnosis is essential for adequate counseling and management of the pregnancy. We report a case of fetal non familial PFFD diagnosed prenatally using two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) images. Clinical findings, differential diagnosis and management of this rare skeletal dysplasia are discussed and a review of the recent literature is given. Copyright © 2011 ISUOG.
