FETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROME


DIAGNOSIS

The diagnosis of FAS is based on clinical finding and maternal history. But in the absence of maternal history FAE or ARDD/ARND can not be determined if diagnostic criteria are strictly applied. However, the combination of facial features, growth delays (especially microcephaly), and neurobehavioral abnormalities strongly suggest this diagnosis in international adoptees, especially in those from high-risk areas.
