Forty-one patients with the fetal alcohol syndrome, including 11 whose cases were previously reported, were studied. These children have a pattern of defects including prenatal and postnatal growth deficiency, small head size with mental subnormality, and facial abnormalities allowing for recognition of the disorder in infancy. The same pattern of abnormalities has been independently reported from France in a series of 127 offspring of chronic alcoholics.
