NOVOA, Rommy H et al. Fetal ascites: Apropos of a case and literature review. Rev. peru. ginecol. obstet. [online]. 2019, vol.65, n.1, pp.99-104. ISSN 2304-5132.

Fetal ascites is defined as the presence of intraperitoneal fluid that may be part of a generalized or isolated hydrops. The mortality of non-immune ascites, both fetal and neonatal, is approximately 60%. We present a case of fetal ascites not associated with hydrops and we review the pathogenesis, clinical features, diagnostic approach and treatment of this fetal and neonatal condition.

Keywords : Fetal ascites; Hydrops; nonimmune.
