Learn About Fetal Akinesia Sequence

What is the definition of Fetal Akinesia Sequence?
Fetal akinesia deformation sequence (FADS) is a condition characterized by decreased fetal movement (fetal akinesia) as well as intra-uterine growth restriction (IUGR), multiple joint contractures (arthrogryposis), facial anomalies, underdevelopment of the lungs (pulmonary hypoplasia) and other developmental abnormalities. It is generally accepted that this condition is not a true diagnosis or a specific syndrome, but rather a description of a group of abnormalities resulting from fetal akinesia. FADS may be inherited in an autosomal recessive manner in some cases and may sometimes be caused by genetic changes in the RAPSN or DOK7 genes.
