HERREROS, MB  e  FRANCO, R. Femoral facial syndrome in a child of a mother with gestational diabetes. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2005, vol.3, n.1, pp.68-70. ISSN 1812-9528.

The Femoral Facial Syndrome (FFS) or Femoral Hypoplasia-Unusual Facies Syndrome (FHUFS) is a rare association of femoral and facial abnormalities. Maternal diabetes has been mainly involved as the causative agent. The case of a child with Femoral Hypoplasia, Unusual Facies Syndrome is described here. He had characteristic facial pattern of upslanted palpebral fissures, long philtrum with thin upper lip, hypoplastic alae nasi and micrognathia. He also had upper limb involvement, rib, vertebral and lower extremities abnormalities, tricuspid valve insufficiency and a neural tube defect. He did not have a positive family history. His mother had gestational diabetes detected at 32 weeks of gestation. We report this case to stress the relationship between Femoral Facial Syndrome and maternal gestational diabetes.
