    Two fetuses at risk for mandibulofacial dysostosis (MFD) were monitored sonographically during the midtrimester of pregnancy. Normal facial and auricular structure were identified in one fetus, and a healthy infant was subsequently delivered. Severe microtia and micrognathia were apparent in the second fetus and a diagnosis of MFD was made and confirmed at delivery. These observations indicate that midtrimester sonographic diagnosis of severe MFD is possible.
