As part of the national screening programme, fetal anomaly screening is offered as part of the routine antenatal care in the NHS. The identification of suspected fetal anomalies causes stress and anxiety in the expectant parents. Therefore, a thorough understanding of the issues as described can help alleviate this to a degree. This problem-based review presents two case histories describing issues encountered during first and second trimester screening, and principles behind subsequent management.
