Abstract

We report a case of osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) (OMIM166210) type II, in which a prenatal diagnosis was made by three-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT). Subsequent molecular analysis revealed a recurrent, heterozygous mutation in COL1A2. Fetal CT is a powerful tool for visualizing the fetal skeleton and can provide a definitive diagnosis of fetal skeletal dysplasias; however, whether or not its employment for prenatal diagnosis is warranted in terms of fetal radiation risks remains controversial, both medically and ethically. Based on our experience, we review the current state of fetal CT for the diagnosis of skeletal dysplasias, with a discussion of the relevant literature.
