Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The sonographic markers of female and male external genitalia have been documented in early and late gestation. The aim of the present study was to report our experience of possible sonographic markers of fetal genital anomalies. Sonography was performed with a vaginal probe in early gestation and an abdominal sector scanner in advanced gestation. The following genital anomalies were observed: hypospadias, epispadias, ambiguous genitalia, and testicular feminization or Smith‐Lemli‐Opitz syndrome. It is therefore concluded that prenatal diagnosis of some genital anomalies is now possible.
