This chapter examines the place of fetal blood and tissue sampling in the diagnosis of fetal disorders. Samples of fetal tissue or body fluids are needed for many of the diagnostic tests that are indicated when antenatal screening tests are positive. Sampling is most often prompted by the results of ultrasound scans. It may also be indicated when a familial or past obstetric history raises the possibility of a genetic disorder.

Keywords:   ultrasound, antenatal diagnosis, fetal blood sampling, fetal tissue sampling, genetic disorders
