Figure 3.25. This infant with the fetal warfarin syndrome (Coumadin™ embryopathy) was born to a mother who was being treated with warfarin during the first trimester of pregnancy.

In this baby note the typical facial features of a broad flat face and nasal hypoplasia with a low nasal bridge, a prominent philtrum, and micrognathia.
