This volume gathers insights from a variety of specialties-genetics, pediatrics, infectious diseases, neonatology, and obstetrical ultrasound-to present integrated protocols for detecting and treating a range of fetal disorders. The anomalities discussed in will be divided into those that are incompatible with life, those that require utero intervention, and those that require postmatal intervention. A detailed clinical protocol and management algorithm will be presented for each anomaly and include the following components: definition and classification; incidence and epidemiology; major principles of diagnosis; recommendations for in utero management; counseling and prognosis; and a bibliography.
