Abstract

Nine pregnancies at risk for various metabolic disorders were monitored by prenatal diagnosis on chorionic villi obtained between the sixth and ninth weeks of pregnancy. A diagnosis of an affected fetus was made in five cases (Sandhoff, Tay-Sachs (2), Pompe's, GM1), while metachromatic leukodystrophy, GM1 (2), and Pompe's were excluded in four cases. It is concluded that chorionic villi are a reliable tissue for prenatal diagnosis of metabolic disorders also when obtained before the ninth week.
