In brief: Alpha feto protein

An elevation of Alpha feto protein between 15-18 weeks in pregnancy may be asign of a defect in the forming fetal spine( neural tubr defect).
It requires a specialized ultrasound imaging to rule out the above possibility. You must speak with your doctor and seek adequate care.
