The medical records of 55 fetuses with sonographically diagnosed mild ventriculomegaly (MVM) were reviewed to assess prognosis. Fetuses were divided into two groups based on the presence or absence of sonographically detected associated fetal anomalies: 13 had no other anomalies detected (isolated MVM), and 42 had concomitant neural axis and visceral anomalies (nonisolated MVM). Mortality was 83% among fetuses with nonisolated MVM and 38% among fetuses with isolated MVM (P less than .005). If… CONTINUE READING
