OBJECTIVE: Early prenatal diagnosis of cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD) in a case in which molecular genetic analysis of the RUNX2 gene was non-informative.

METHODS: 2D ultrasound examination.

RESULTS: At week 13+6, a 2D ultrasound examination revealed a fetus with severely delayed ossification of the vertebral spine. The clavicles were barely seen and the calvarial bones were significantly less ossified than expected for gestational age. The fetus had otherwise normal anatomy and biometry. Serial ultrasound examinations during pregnancy confirmed the diagnosis, but the manifestations became less distinct. The diagnosis was confirmed clinically at birth.

CONCLUSION: This case illustrates an early easily recognizable pattern of severely delayed ossification of the vertebral spine, which is probably a characteristic of CCD.
