This video shows Hydrops fetalis, anencephaly, Soft tissue edema, ascites, and club foot in the fetus.
Hydrops fetalis is a condition in the fetus characterized by an accumulation of fluid, or edema, in at least two fetal compartments. By comparison, hydrops allantois or hydrops amnion is an accumulation of excessive fluid in the allantoic or amniotic space, respectively.
Absent cranial vault; the base of the skull is small with absent or decreased anterior and middle cranial fossa; the cranial base is covered by a vascular mass.
Hydrops fetalis (fetal hydrops) is a serious fetal condition defined as an abnormal accumulation of fluid in two or more fetal compartments, including ascites, pleural effusion, pericardial effusion, and skin edema. In some patients, it may also be associated with polyhydramnios and placental edema.
Nonimmune hydrops fetalis occurs when a disease or medical condition disrupts the body's ability to manage fluid. There are three main causes for this type: heart or lung problems, severe anemia (thalassemia), and genetic defects, including Turner syndrome. The exact cause depends on which form a baby has.
Non-immune hydrops fetalis is an uncommon but serious disorder associated with an overall poor prognosis, characterized by abnormal fluid accumulation in two or more fetal serous compartments, together with generalized soft tissue edema.
The outlook for hydrops fetalis depends on the underlying condition, but even with treatment, the survival rate for the baby is low. Only about 20 percent of babies diagnosed with hydrops fetalis before birth will survive to delivery, and of those babies, only half will survive after delivery.
In conclusion, even a rare case of fetal ascites can be managed successfully. Fetal ascites is commonly considered as a part or precursor of fetal hydrops, which has various etiologies.
Pleural effusion is an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the chest cavity. As the fluid increases, it can limit the development of the lungs and compromise the heart's function. Causes of pleural effusion may include chromosome abnormalities, heart conditions, lung problems, or abnormal lymph drainage.
Immune hydrops fetalis is no longer very common due to advances in the prevention of hemolytic disease of the newborn. Non-immune hydrops fetalis occurs in approximately one of every 1,000 births. About half of unborn babies with hydrops fetalis do not survive.
Serial ultrasound examinations should be performed every 1 to 2 weeks for 8 to 12 weeks after exposure. The most obvious US manifestation of fetal anemia is hydrops. By the time US evidence of hydrops is present, the fetal hematocrit is likely to be less than 20%.
This condition may be misdiagnosed as pre-eclampsia. Fetal hydrops can be diagnosed on fetal ultrasound examination when there is an abnormal fluid collection within two fetal compartments.
The number of babies who develop immune hydrops fetalis has dropped due to a medicine called RhoGAM. This drug is given as an injection to pregnant mothers who are at risk for Rh incompatibility. The drug prevents them from making antibodies against their babies' red blood cells.
