Historical reports indicate that the observation of an adverse effect on the fetus of chronic maternal alcoholism is not new. Three additional cases of the fetal alcohol syndrome have been recognised in two newborn infants and a 7-month-old baby. The immutable nature of the prenatal-onset growth deficiency was further confirmed. The first necropsy performed on a patient with fetal alcohol syndrome disclosed serious dysmorphogenesis of the brain, which may be responsible for some of the functional abnormalities and the joint malposition seen in this syndrome.
