Abstract

Many ethical considerations surround prenatal genetic diagnosis, some of which are not anticipated. We present 2 cases in which misattributed paternity was inadvertently discovered during the workup of a father and son and a father and fetus, and present arguments for and against disclosure of this information. We recommend that healthcare providers must be prepared to deal with this kind of issue.
