DALLAS (WFAA/CNN) - The fetus of a pregnant woman at the center of a legal battle in Texas is "distinctly abnormal", according to attorneys representing the family of Marlise Munoz.
The lower extremities of the fetus are deformed and it suffers from hydrocephalus or water on the brain.
Erick Munoz says his wife is brain dead and is suing the hospital to take her off a respirator.
Hospital officials do not dispute those assertions but have not publicly declared her dead.
Marlise Munoz was 14 weeks pregnant when her husband found her unconscious at their home.
A hearing on the case is set for Friday.
