Has anyone has an issue with a nasal bone not visible on the 20 week anomolly scan. I already had an amnio and our baby boy's karyotype (genes) are fine. What can this mean? :( We are caucasian and negative for all downs tested but there seems to be links to rare genetic syndromes. Anyone had this be diagnosed wrong?

If you had the amnio done and all is fine - the baby has no mutated genes. What do you mean by "there seems to be links to ..." www links? Or links between your hubby and you? What did your doctor say about the nasal bone not visible - is he/she worried? What next steps are you having done? I think that your doctor should have talked about this with you. Sorry I cannot be of more help.

I may not be of help and am as lost as you are.I had an ultrasascan and blood test done at week 13, blood test result turn out fine for down syndrome test, risk level is very low. Ultrascan looks alright with my baby's features except for it's nasal bone. I did another scan at week 16, and nasal bone is absent, this puts me in a high risk group for down syndrome. In which, by week 20, if the scan does not show the nasal bone, i would need to proceed for an amnio test. My gynae did provide me with backgrounds that over the last 6 months, he's seen 5-6 babies whose scan showed no nasal bone but they are born normal babies. Not sure if this helps at all. Can't answer directly to your question but am only able to offer what i know. And i suppose, it quite difficult to find support groups for our case, cos' our babys' conditions are rare.
