A case of a 24-week-old fetus of non consanguineous parents with an ultrasonographic diagnosis of a short right femur, ipsilateral agenesia of the fibula and a twisted right foot is described. Cordocentesis revealed a normal 46XY karyotype. The parents were informed on treatment options and after psychological counselling they decided to undergo an abortion. Post mortem examination confirmed the diagnosis of a severe right limb malformation.
