Rouquette described malformations associated with parental alcoholism that were very similar to those now recognized as part of the fetal alcohol syndrome. She found alcoholism in the mother to be especially threatening to the developing infant Alcohol and birth defects.

alcohol-related birth defects. The term fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) refers to a constellation of physical, behavioral, and cognitive abnormalities. 1 In addition to the classic dysmorphic facial features, prenatal and postnatal growth abnormalities, and mental retardation that define the condition, approximately 80% of children with FAS have microcephaly and behavioral abnormalities. 2 As many as 50% of affected children also exhibit poor coordination, hypotonia, attention-deficit.

Fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) is a complex malformative condition due to the teratogenic effect of alcohol consumed during pregnancy. Several epidemiological studies have shown that maternal alcohol use during pregnancy is the most common preventable cause of mental retardation in childhood. This statement is an update of a previous statement by the American Academy of Pediatrics and reflects the current thinking about alcohol exposure in utero and the revised nosology.
The concept Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) refers to a set of birth defects that occur in children born to mothers who abused alcohol during pregnancy. The alcohol-induced defects include pre- and post-natal growth deficiencies, minor facial abnormalities, and damage to the developing central nervous system (CNS). Ernest L. Abel, 57–69.

Alcohol in the woman’s bloodstream circulates to the fetus via the placenta.
The term Fetal Alcohol Effects, FAE, indicates that alcohol is being considered as one of the possible causes of patient’s birth defects. In other words, FAE is a less severe form of FAS. Both FAS and FAE are the results of the use of teratogens, which are that can potentially complicate fetal development. Alcohol in the woman’s bloodstream circulates to the fetus via the placenta.
These four challenges indicate that what is urgently needed to advance the field of FAS diagnosis are current diagnostic guidelines based on empirical evidence as well as clinical experience.
