CARDENAS, Joel; HUERTAS, Erasmo; ORE, Ismenia  and  CARBAJAL, Semiramis. Non-immune hidrops fetalis: Apropos of a case. An. Fac. med. [online]. 2004, vol.65, n.2, pp.133-137. ISSN 1025-5583.

We present a case of non-immune hydrops fetalis diagnosed by antenatal ultrasound at 31 weeks of gestation . Fetal karyotyping of blood sample obtained by cordocentesis was abnormal. The fetus died 6 days later. Postmortem examination was compatible with Down syndrome. We report the possibility of antenatal hydrops fetalis diagnosis by invasive techniques.

Keywords : Hydrops fetalis; edema; Down syndrome; fetal diseases; perinatology.
