Ethanol teratogenicity manifests itself in the form of the foetal alcohol syndrome (FAS). This syndrome is characterised by growth delay, impairment of the central nervous system, and various facial dysmorphisms. We report the case of a 19 month-old boy affected by FAS. In addition to the three common features of FAS, this patient disclosed organic (digestive and cardiac) malformations and cellular chemotaxis deficiency. We have reviewed the literature to provide an update on the clinical signs of FAS. The abnormalities provoked by foetal exposure to ethanol can be very varied, none of them being specific.
