Abstract

Fryns syndrome (FS) is a rare malformation. We report a case of FS referred to our clinic at 27 weeks' gestation with a diagnosis of congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Sonographic examination of the fetus revealed a left-sided diaphragmatic hernia, pulmonary hypoplasia, and a median orofacial cleft. The diagnosis of FS was made after exclusion of chromosome aberrations and delivery of the fetus. Macroscopic inspection revealed a coarse face (hypertelorism and broad and flat nasal bridge, anteverted nostrils, median cleft lip/palate, poorly shaped auricles with attached earlobes, facial hirsutism), a narrow thorax, nail hypoplasia, and hypoplastic, widely spaced nipples.
