ObjectivesWe aimed to determine associated ultrasonographic findings, chromosome abnormalities and the prognostic factors of cystic hygromas in live-born infants.MethodsWe reported a series of 57 cystic hygroma cases, who were diagnosed in the first and the second trimester of pregnancy by means of the ultrasonographic morphology of cystic hygroma, associated structural abnormalities, karyotype analysis and the autopsy findings. Survivors were followed for their fetal outcome and prognosis… Expand
Prenatal Diagnosis and Fetal Outcomes of Cystic Hygroma: Experience of a Tertiary Hospital
TLDR
The presence of cystic hygroma carries a high risk for aneuploidy and major structural malformations, and parental counselling about poor perinatal prognosis is mandatory. Expand
Fetal axillary cystic hygroma: a case report and review
TLDR
The fetal CH carries high risk of aneuploidy and fetal malformations and patients that have been diagnosed with CH in antenatal follow-ups should be assessed in terms of other anomalies. Expand
Antenatal Diagnosis and Management of Nuchal Cystic Hygroma: A Case Report in the Yaounde Central Maternity, Cameroon
TLDR
A case of nuchal cystic hygroma diagnosed in the second trimester of pregnancy with the aid of an ultrasonographic morphological analysis is reported and the parents requested termination of the pregnancy. Expand
Antenatal Diagnosis and Management of Nuchal Cystic Hygroma
TLDR
A case of nuchal cystic hygroma diagnosed in the second trimester of pregnancy with the aid of an ultrasonographic morphological analysis is reported and parents requested termination of pregnancy. Expand
Case report of fetal axillo-thoraco-abdominal cystic hygroma
TLDR
This is a case report of a huge late-onset fetal axillo-thoraco-abdominal cystic hygroma, which was diagnosed at term followed by a difficult vaginal delivery in a 38-year-old woman. Expand
Fetal axillary cystic hygroma: a novel association with triple X syndrome.
TLDR
A novel description of axillary CH associated with triple X syndrome is reported, which was referred because of a fetal cystic mass at the right axillary region and no additional abnormalities were detected prenatally or after abortion. Expand
[Prenatal diagnosis of a giant cystic lymphangioma in the axillothoracic wall].
TLDR
A male infant was born at 37 weeks gestation with a large, swelling, lateral parietal right chest and the mass was excised incompletely, and Ultrasound soft tissue follow-up showed the persistence of multiple cystic structures in the axilla. Expand
Cystic Hygroma
TLDR
This is the first report to the authors' knowledge describing dental extractions in the immediate vicinity of a cystic hygroma, and a potential management strategy and the difficulties of conventional methods in such patients are discussed. Expand
An Interesting Association of Cystic Hygroma of the Neck and Lymphangioma Causing a Paediatric Swollen Tongue
TLDR
A 5-year-old girl who presented to the Department of Paediatrics of a district general hospital with a short history of recurrent, painful swelling of the anterior one-third of her tongue shows a rare association between a cystic hygroma of the neck and lymphangioma of the tongue. Expand
Prenatal Sonographic Features of Turner Syndrome
TLDR
An overview of the common sonographic features of fetuses with Turner syndrome, including cystic hygromas, increased nuchal translucency, non-immune hydrops fetalis, cardiovascular anomalies, urinary anomalies, short femur length, and other rare structural anomalies is provided. Expand

Hygroma colli cysticum: prenatal diagnosis and prognosis.
TLDR
Recommendation includes karyotyping and if parents decide to continue the pregnancy ultrasound scan at 20 to 22 weeks' gestation is necessary, for excluding associated anomalies. Expand
[Cystic hygroma of the neck. Antenatal diagnosis, prognostic factors, management. 42 cases].
TLDR
The authors advise that the diagnosis of cystic hygroma should be made early and thoroughly in order to carry out chorionic villus sampling to determine the karyotype early before the very important sign for abnormality disappears as it may. Expand
Etiology, prognosis and management of nuchal cystic hygroma: 25 new cases and literature review.
TLDR
The prognostic factors associated with a poor outcome are an abnormal karyotype and associated structural malformations and all other factors evaluated do not appear to be of prognostic value at this time. Expand
Second‐Trimester Cystic Hygroma: Prognosis of Septated and Nonseptated Lesions
TLDR
Fetuses with septated cystic hygromas are more likely to be aneuploid and to develop hydrops, and thus are less likely to survive than fetuses with nonseptated hyGromas. Expand
Antenatal detection of cystic hygroma.
TLDR
The prenatal detection of 16 cases of cystic hygromata and an analysis of a survey of the world's literature including an additional 155 cases allow a clearer picture of the prognosis for fetuses in whom posterior cystic Hygroma is detected in utero. Expand
Cystic hygroma in the fetus and newborn.
TLDR
The embryologic, genetic, and pathologic correlates of these lymphatic system abnormalities, as well as the clinical course and outcome of the fetus and newborn with a cystic hygroma are reviewed. Expand
The difference between septated and nonseptated nuchal cystic hygroma in the early second trimester.
TLDR
This study confirms the previous suggestion that nonseptated cystic hygromas differ from septated lesions, not only in location and morphologic appearance, but also in prognosis. Expand
Prenatally diagnosed cystic lymphangioma in infants.
TLDR
Prenatal diagnosis permits planned delivery, prompt postnatal resuscitation, and improve prognosis for infants with massive CL diagnosed early in pregnancy, and a poor outcome or difficult management can be expected. Expand
Fetal Cystic Hygroma: Prenatal Diagnosis and Management
TLDR
An ultrasound diagnosis of cystic hygroma should be followed by a careful search for other anomalies and by fetal karyotyping, and afterward, genetic counseling is indicated. Expand
First-trimester simple hygroma: cause and outcome.
TLDR
Fetuses with first-trimester simple nuchal hygromas are at high risk for aneuploidy and should be offered prenatal testing and most will be phenotypically normal at birth. Expand
