    Try googling "inbreeding human" and you will find plenty.

    Of course there is no one answer to the question of what the offspring of an incestuous liaison will look like. It will vary from case to case. But you will find plenty of evidence of the damage done by inbreeding generally. Famously, the house of Habsburg suffered from the Habsburg lip or jaw, due to inbreeding among the small gene pool constituted by the royal families of Europe. Charles II of Spain was affected mentally as well as physically by deformities due to this inbreeding.

    As in the "NFN" comment on medical notes, you mean? I understand, from a Scottish nurse I once went out with, that in Scotland they write NFP, Normal For Paisley. Is there inbreeding there, too? I would not have thought so.

    P.S. I notice nobody has addressed the implied question in the title, of what the offspring of an incestuous homosexual liaison might look like.

    Yes, exactly so. I can think of several other places I would put ahead of Paisley for alleged inbreeding.

    She had some other funny Casualty abbreviations as well, taking as their model the well-known "RTA" for Road Traffic Accident. I recall FLK for "Funny-Looking Kid", and PFO for "Pissed, Fell Over". Delightful woman, from Inverness. Didn't seem inbred to me.

    The offspring of fraternal twin incest would have the same appearence as the offspring of any brother/sister incest. Their being twins would not affect that. There would be a strong family resemblence and a very slightly increased risk of birth defects.

    I can't speak to the NFN abrieviation but FLK is a semi ligitimate medical diagnosis. It is used when the examining physician wants to convey that the child is minimally abnormal but no specific pathology can be detected at this time. As in, " he may be fine but he's a funny looking kid."
    I think the RTA might mean the same as MVA "motor vehicle accident" or it might convey the same meaning as "train wreck". "Train wreck" can be used in any situation where there is global and catastrophic damage either physical or psychologial.
    PFO is similar to DFD which was used in the ER I worked in. It stood for "drunk, fell down". It was used to discribe the mechanism of injury for facial injuries including fractures of the facial bones caused when the patient had fallen face first into pavement.

    Correct, identical twins happen when a fertilized egg is physically separated after its first division. Fraternal twins are the result of two separate eggs being fertillized by two different sperm cells. Theoreticlly the two sperm need not even be from the same male parent.

    But think: what does "identical"mean? And what does "different" mean?
