Skin dimpling as a consequence of amniocentesis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

No reports of cutaneous lesions after amniocentesis have been published after the advent of real-time ultrasonography. Two infants with multiple skin dimpling caused by needle puncture during fetal life are described. They had pitted scars on the thighs and abdomen that were not associated with internal injury. Both mothers had undergone a diagnostic amniocentesis at the beginning of the second trimester of pregnancy. Real-time ultrasound monitoring of amniocentesis has not completely eliminated the risk of needle puncture scarring of the fetus.
