Stüve-Wiedemann syndrome (SWS) is an extremely rare congenital skeletal disorder associated with significant newborn mortality and morbidity in survivors. Prenatal diagnosis is reportedly possible, but a precise diagnosis is difficult because SWS is part of a heterogeneous group of bone dysplasias. Mole-cular analysis remains the gold standard for establishing a specific diagnosis of this kind of disorders and for providing effective prenatal counselling. This article presents a case of SWS suspected at prenatal ultrasound in the second trimester of pregnancy and confirmed by multidisciplinary approach at birth.
