The Authors report a case of a lethal form of asphyxiating thoracic dysplasia (Jeune syndrome) in a newborn female with a narrow thoracic cage causing severe respiratory failure at birth. The diagnosis was unequivocally confirmed by radiographs of thorax and pelvis. This report emphasizes the importance of the radiological and sonographic features in establishing a correct diagnosis.
