Potential Congenital Pectus Carinatum

Patient: My sister is 22 weeks pregnant (I’m 32 weeks). The results from her ultrasound indicate that her baby has pectus carinatum. Is it common to identify this in an ultrasound? How can we determine how serious this is and if there are any other associated disorders?Thanks,
