Abstract

Nuchal cystic hygroma (NCH) and non immune hydrops (NIH) were detected by ultrasound examinations in two sib male fetuses. Fetal and parental karyotypes were normal. The parents elected to terminate the two pregnancies. Post mortem examination showed no anomalies other than those detected by ultrasound. The family history shows consanguinity supporting the hypothesis, in this family, of an autosomal recessive inheritance of the cystic hygroma/non immune hydrops.
