Abstract

We report the case of a 33 year old patient, G2P1, who presented with a Pentalogy of Cantrell in the first trimester ultrasound scan (13+2 weeks). The ultrasound shows a single pregnancy, with CRL of 51.1. mm and nuchal translucency of 7.5. mm that has a toracic mass diagnosed as ectopia cordis, a megabladder, bilateral renal malformation and clubfoot, being diagnosed of Pentalogy of Cantrell. The patient asked for abortion. Pathology analysis described a fitus adequate for gestational age with midline toraco-abdominal defect with evisceration of heart, intestines and bladder.Therefore, the use of first trimester ultrasound scan permits not only the diagnosis of fetal viability and gestational age, but also the diagnosis of fetal structural defects with no need for waiting for the 20th week allowing early decision making.The will of this report is to describe the use of first trimester ultrasound for the diagnosis of structural defects, in this case the Pentalogy of Cantrell.
