Abstract

Nonimmune hydrops fetalis is becoming the predominant form of fetal hydrops due to the declining frequency of Rh isoimmunization. Reported is the preterm delivery of a hydropic twin with umbilical cord and cutaneous hemangiomata. The unusual umbilical angiomatous malformation was associated with marked edema of the cord. This produced an ultrasonographic abnormality detected antenatally as a multicystic mass in close approximation to the fetal abdomen. The hydropic twin responded to aggressive neonatal management. It appears that hemangiomata of the umbilical cord may be causally related to fetal hydrops and may represent another entry in the differential diagnosis of this disorder.
