Abstract
Studies on fetal alcohol syndrome are reviewed. Characteristics of the syndrome are described along with the pathogenesis of the disease. Animal models of the syndrome are discussed. Variability in the manifestations of the syndrome are evaluated and the frequency of infants born to alcoholic mothers is discussed. The author recommends education of pregnant women on the hazards of alcohol abuse and early recognition of affected infants. Additional studies are recommended on the dose effects and timing of alcohol consumption.
