Introduction: The objectives of this study were to evaluate the outcome of nonimmune hydrops fetalis in an attempt to identify independent predictors of perinatal mortality. Material and Methods: A retrospective cohort study was conducted including all cases of nonimmune hydrops from two tertiary care centers. Perinatal outcome was evaluated after classifying nonimmune hydrops into ten etiological groups. We examined the effect of etiology, site of fluid accumulation, and gestational age at… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Survival of Hydrops Fetalis with and without Fetal Intervention
TLDR
Overall, hydrops fetalis was diagnosed early, and fetal intervention was performed in a timely manner, and the initial diagnosis time, gestational age at birth, birthweight, Apgar score, and first albumin and pH levels were independently associated with mortality.
Frequency and Prognosis of Hydrops Fetalis: A 10-Year Single-Center Experience
TLDR
It was determined that HF mostly developed for non-immune reasons, prenatal diagnosis and follow- up were insufficient and the interventions performed in the delivery room were an important factor in predicting mortality in the follow-up of neonates with HF.
Clinical Course and Outcome of Non-Immune Fetal Hydrops in Singleton Pregnancies
TLDR
Adverse outcome in pregnancies with fetal hydrops was associated with a lower gestational age at diagnosis, nuchal translucency greater than 2.5 mm and a higher count of affected compartments, confirming that a precise clinical workup to identify the underlying etiology of non-immune Fetal Hydrops is essential for a better prognostic assessment and accurate counselling of parents.
Clinical characteristics and neonatal outcomes of liveborn newborns with hydrops fetalis treated in a tertiary level neonatal intensive care unit.
TLDR
It was determined that the mean gestational age was not associated with mortality; moreover, birthweight, Apgar score and the need for mechanical ventilation affected mortality, and the prognosis changes according to different etiologies of HF.
A Case Report of Complete Resolution of Nonimmunological Hydrops Fetalis Without Known Etiology
TLDR
A case of hydrops fetalis, presented with generalized edema and pleural and pericardial effusion at 30 weeks of gestation with preterm birth at this age due to preterm uterine contractions, is explained.
Non-immunologic hydrops fetalis and coronavirus disease (COVID-19) – A case report
TLDR
One case of non-immune hydrops fetalis who was diagnosed intra-uterine, three weeks after recovery from Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is presented, predisposed a possible causal connection between nonimmunologic hydrops Fetalis and Coronvirus disease.
A system‐based approach to the genetic etiologies of non‐immune hydrops fetalis
TLDR
The known genetic etiologies of NIHF by fetal organ system affected are outlined, a systematic approach to evaluation is provided, and a more targeted approach to genetic evaluation, diagnosis, and management of NI HF is guided.
Placental Chorioangioma with Nonimmune Hydrops Fetalis
TLDR
This case represents the multidisciplinary approach to the pregnancy complicated by a large placental chorioangioma and the resulting premature neonate with nonimmune hydrops fetalis.
A homozygous variant in growth and differentiation factor 2 (GDF2) may cause lymphatic dysplasia with hydrothorax and nonimmune hydrops fetalis.
TLDR
To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of an association between a homozygous variant in GDF2 with lymphatic dysplasia, hydrothorax and nonimmune hydrops fetalis.

Non-immune hydrops fetalis: prenatal diagnosis and perinatal outcomes.
TLDR
The per inatal outcomes after a prenatal diagnosis of non-immune hydrops fetalis conveys a grave perinatal prognosis, and even for those fetuses achieving viability, survival beyond the neonatal period is rare.
Clinical characteristics and perinatal outcome of fetal hydrops
TLDR
The number of fluid collection sites was the significant antenatal risk factor to predict neonatal death and the number of fetal hydrops cases had no definite identifiable causes.

Long‐term outcome of 51 liveborn neonates with non‐immune hydrops fetalis
TLDR
The follow‐up results indicate that pleural drainage in utero and prevention of premature delivery should be proposed to improve the outcome of NIHF patients.
Primary Fetal Hydrothorax: A Literature Review and Proposed Antenatal Clinical Strategy
TLDR
Investigation of prognostic factors for primitive fetal hydrothorax finds 4 factors correlated with the course of PFHT: the presence of hydrops, gestational age at time of birth, the unilateral or bilateral nature of the effusion, and the occurrence of spontaneous resolution.
Etiology of nonimmune hydrops fetalis: A systematic review
TLDR
A systematic review of the pertinent literature based on the QUality Of Reporting Of Meta‐analyses (QUOROM) recommendations, which identified 225 relevant NIHF articles, establishing 14 different diagnostic categories and providing the pathophysiologic background of each, if known.
Hydrops Fetalis: A Retrospective Review of Cases Reported to a Large National Database and Identification of Risk Factors Associated With Death
TLDR
The risk of death among neonates with hydrops fetalis depends on the underlying diagnosis and is highest for those who is born more prematurely and those who are most ill immediately after birth.
Predictive value of pleural effusions in fetal hydrops.
TLDR
Fetal pleural effusions predicted death (fetal or neonatal) with a sensitivity, specificity, and overall accuracy of 62% in the 143 cases that did not end in a therapeutic termination of pregnancy.

TLDR
It is concluded that ultrasound definition of fluid collections in non‐immune hydrops may be helpful in predicting the underlying cause of the hydrops, although there are no specific patterns predictive of outcome.
