Abstract

Congenital short femur (CSF) is a very rare condition and after the ultrasonography has been actively used, the placement of the antenatal diagnosis is actually quite facilitated. It is usually not accompanied by chromosomal abnormalities. Our case presentation has shown the importance of both femur lengths and all other extremity images while performing antenatal scanning.
