Technical advances in ultrasound have enabled intrauterine detection of a wide range of fetal abnormalities, including hydmonephmosis, posterior fossa cysts, fetal hydrops, and meningomyelocele [1-4]. This report describes a case of intrauterine fetal death and associated hydmops secondary to massive pleural effusions and hypoplastic lungs. No previous report of… CONTINUE READING
