Abstract

Branchio-oto-renal syndrome combines branchial arch defects, hearing impairment and renal malformations or hypoplasia. Due to the high phenotypic variability, prenatal diagnosis has a limited prognostic value in mutation-positive cases. We report the first branchio-oto-renal syndrome molecular prenatal diagnosis and ultrasonographic follow-up, showing a normal renal growth until the 24th week of pregnancy, a growth deceleration during the third trimester and a renal volume recovery during the first months of life.
