An association with facial clefts and other extra-CNS anomalies (especially congenital heart disease and urinary anomalies) has been described, often in the context of chromosomal and genetic syndromes. Risk of chromosomal anomalies. This is high, with up to 35% of cases being associated with aneuploidy, mainly trisomies 18 and 13. qxd 34 3/27/2007 3:18 PM Page 34 ULTRASOUND OF CONGENITAL FETAL ANOMALIES Risk of non-chromosomal syndromes.
