Lucas Boer The Past, Present and Future of Dutch Teratological Collections. From enigmatic specimens to paradigm breakers

Anatomical museums in the Netherlands house collections of congenital anomalies and go back to the 17th century. In this thesis, these special teratological collections are researched and comprehensively described. A major amount of the specimens in these collections are collected well before the presence of prenatal diagnostics and it is therefore that these collections show many rare anomalies in a late stage of fetal development. Researching these collections with current dysmorphological insights and contemporary techniques, such as radiological imaging and genetic diagnostics, gives insight in the most severe forms of expression of certain congenital anomalies. This premise can lead to a  better understanding in the genesis of the anomaly and expansion of the clinical spectrum.
