dc.description.abstract This project involved the statistical analysis of facial landmark used in Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) diagnosis. FAS is a clinical condition caused by excessive maternal consumption of alcohol during pregnancy. Diagnosis of FAS depends on evidence of growth retardation, CNS neurodevelopment abnormalities, and a characteristic pattern of facial anomalies, specifically a short palpebral fissure length, smooth philtrum, flat upper lip and flat midface. The unique facial appearance associated with FAS is emphasized in diagnosis that relies, in part, on the comparison of linear measurements of facial features to population norms. en_ZA
