Caption

X-ray of the skull of an aborted 18-week fetus showing a cleft palate, one example of the gross multiple abnormalities that caused the fetus to be aborted. The cleft palate, the incomplete fusion of the bony roof of the mouth, is revealed by the V-shaped notch (white) that projects upwards (in an 11 o'clock position) towards the nose. Cleft palate is frequently associated with other developmental defects, which in this case were severe & multiple; any underlying syndrome was not diagnosed.
