HUMAN PHENOTYPE - ANNOTATIONS

The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) is downloaded weekly from http://compbio.charite.de/hudson/job/hpo/lastStableBuild/artifact/ontology/release/hp.obo. The file downloaded is considered the "last stable build" available for the ontology. For more about the HPO, view their website at http://www.human-phenotype-ontology.org/.

Accession:HP:0010942 term browser browse the term
Definition:A finding of a focus of increased echogenicity upon prenatal ultrasound examination of the fetus. The foci may be present in one or both ventricles. Echogenic intracardiac focus (EICF) is defined as a focus of echogenicity comparable to bone, in the region of the papillary muscle in either or both ventricles of the fetal heart.
Comment:An echogenic intracardiac focus (EIF) is generally believed to be a normal variant, observed in 5% of all fetuses during second trimester sonography, but the risk of aneuploidies such as Down syndrome is increased in fetuses with EIF.
Synonyms:xref: UMLS:C4023634
