The diagnosis of fetal alcohol syndrome should be reserved for those infants who have a history of in utero exposure to large amounts of alcohol and who have the characteristic physical features of the disorder. The past practice of labeling children with developmental disorders who do not have the clinical stigmata as having fetal alcohol effects should be abandoned. Although there may be no absolutely safe level of maternal alcohol consumption throughout pregnancy (particularly in the first trimester), the risk of teratogenesis increases dramatically with increasing degrees of maternal ethanol consumption.

Also note his long arms. Figure 1-29. Beals syndrome variant. This child was found to have an abnormality of fibrillin 2 secretion in fibroblasts. A, She was tall and had arachnodactyly with contractures.

Mutations of imprinting control center genes (3% of cases). 5. Mutations of the ubiquitin-protein ligase gene (UBE3A) (11% of cases). 6. Classic phenotype, with no identifiable etiologic mechanisms but a positive family history of other affected individuals (11% of cases). Note: 4, 5, and 6 account for approximately 25% of cases of Angelman syndrome cases. Because of etiologic variability and complexity of the diagnostic process, families of children suspected of having either of these disorders should be referred for genetic evaluation and diagnostic testing to ensure the most accurate determination of etiologic mechanism, and therefore, of recurrence risk.
