Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Preconceptional, preimplantation, and prenatal medicine is a rapidly expanding field with new diagnostic possibilities due to developments in the areas of genetic and molecular diagnosis. These new prospects also pose novel challenges regarding the interpretation of results and ethical considerations. This Special Issue on Recent Advances in Prenatal Medicine aims to publish papers expounding new insights in the area of fetal and maternal medicine.

Tetrasomy 9p is a chromosomal disorder characterized by the presence of a supernumerary chromosome. This rare abnormality exhibits a broad phenotypic variability and is not clearly distinguishable from other more frequent aneuploidies in the prenatal setting. We present two prenatal cases with dissimilar phenotypes, one with solely increased fetal nuchal translucency and one with multiple congenital anomalies, and discuss prior studies. These cases illustrate the difficulty of prenatally diagnosing this condition based on phenotypic information alone. We conclude that invasive prenatal diagnosis with (molecular) karyotyping is the best choice for the prenatal detection of tetrasomy 9p. Full article
