Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a fetus with spinal muscular atrophy type I, who presented with an increased nuchal translucency at 13 weeks' gestation. A review of the literature reveals additional cases of spinal muscular atrophy type I associated with increased nuchal translucency and suggests increased nuchal translucency may be an early finding in this disorder.
