Abstract

Over a nine‐year period, 925 pregnancies at an Israeli medical centre were selected for investigation by amniocentesis for genetic reasons. In only 30 pregnancies did failure of laboratory methods or difficulty with amniocentesis lead to a lack of results with which to assess the normality of the fetus. The information obtained by examination of the amniotic fluid in the other 895 pregnancies is presented and discussed.
