Abstract

Sonography was performed during the second trimester in two pregnancies at risk for the Marfan syndrome. In one, the limbs were significantly longer than expected (p < 0.0025) and a diagnosis of the Marfan syndrome was established. Pathological examination of the fetus after pregnancy interruption showed typical foci of cystic medial necrosis in the ascending aorta.
