INTRODUCTION: Rather few papers are about first trimesters pathology. The reason of this roots in the technical difficulties. The first trimesters pathology can not be separated from prenatal diagnostics. OBJECTIVES: The authors summarized the molecular basis of embryology, malformations, and published cases that had been diagnosed prenatally. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In the I. Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Semmelweis University in Budapest between 1995. and 2000. altogether sixty embryos 70 gms or smaller were examined. RESULTS: Malformations included neural tube defects, disorders of twinning, body stalk defect, chromosome aberrations, hydrops, omphalocele and gastroschisis. CONCLUSIONS: Examination of early embryos may discover many results on the fields of prenatal diagnosis and the pathomechanism of developmental abnormalities.
