Association of Klippel-feil syndrome, Dandy-walker malformat
Klippel-Feil syndrome is a congenital malformation characterized by the fusion of at least 2 cervical vertebrae. It may occur in association with other clinical syndromes and disorders.

Published in the journal Radiology Case Reports, the authors describe a case of prenatal diagnosis of a Klippel-Feil syndrome with Dandy-Walker malformation, and spina bifida, proved by ultrasound examination.

A postmortem x-ray and autopsy were performed in a female fetus of 16 + 6 weeks of gestation: several malformations have been discovered. According to the authors this is the first such case.

Major takeaway:-
This case report underscores the importance of a careful ultrasound screening during pregnancy for an adequate diagnostic and therapeutic management.
