We used linkage analysis for prenatal diagnosis of the recently reported hypoparathyroidism, retardation, and dysmorphism (HRD) syndrome. Five cases from four families were evaluated. Three fetuses were carriers and were born healthy. Two fetuses were affected but the parents decided not to terminate the pregnancies. The diagnosis of HRD syndrome was confirmed in these newborns. This is the first report about prenatal diagnosis of HRD syndrome. Copyright (C) 2000 John Wiley and Sons, Ltd.
