Aneuploidies occur in about 5% of clinically recognized pregnancies. Facial gestalt is a vital tool for the clinical diagnosis of trisomy 21. Facial anomalies are subtle in fetal life and challenging for a clinician not familiar with perinatal dysmorphology. Here, we present the facial profile and additional features in six fetuses with Down syndrome as a visual aid. We present the facial photographs of six fetuses with genetically confirmed trisomy 21. These photographs will serve as a diagnostic aid for trisomy 21 in perinatal dysmorphology.We noted punctate calcifications in two fetuses with trisomy 21.
