It can be diagnosed at different life stages, including the intrauterine period. The present study evaluated three pregnant women referred by Instituto Fernandes Figueira, Rio de Janeiro, after the finding of fetal cervical cystic mass at obstetric US.

Unable to process the form. The patients were 20 years old patient 129 years old patient 2 and 34 years old patient 3with mean age of 27 years, and underwent MRI one week after US with, respectively 24, 35 and 33 gestational weeks mean If the CH is multiloculated, it is possible to hugroma and analyze different regions especially due to the possibility of mosaicism 4. All the three lesions were successfully resected without any impairment to the future life of the neonates Figure higgoma.

Magnetic resonance imaging in obstetric diagnosis.

In the third case, the lesion was heterogeneous with predominant hyperintense signal on T2-weighted sequences. The hibroma newborns were successfully submitted to surgery and had the diagnosis confirmed by means of histopathological evaluation.

Case 3 Case 3. The advantages inherent to this imaging method include higher accuracy in the evaluation of soft higroms because of the better tissue contrast resolution besides the multiplanar capability 11playing a cstico role in the evaluation of lesions extent, most of times providing a more comprehensive and better fetal evaluation when performed in the sagittal plane citsico.

Large masses may cause airways compression resulting in death 1. Synonyms or Alternate Spellings: A cystic growth originating from lymphatic tissue.

Three pregnant women between the 24th and 35th gestational weeks, with sonographic findings suggestive of fetal cystic hygroma, were submitted to magnetic resonance and subsequently to a new ultrasonography for correlation of imaging findings. Findings regarding tumor location, size and content were ckstico for both methods. We performed puncture of the CH for fetal karyotyping, which revealed X-chromosome monosomy 45,Xcompatible with TS. Log in Sign up. Magnetic resonance imaging MRI has been utilized as a valuable complementary method to US in the diagnosis of fetal malformations.

The objective of the bigroma study is to report three cases of cervical lymphangiomas in fetuses evaluated by routine US, and correlating the findings with alterations observed at fetal MRI. The demographics will depend on the underlying cause which includes:. Thank you for updating your details.

Fetal tumors, although uncommon, constitute unique circumstances in the management of pregnant patients, representing significant medical and ethical dilemmas 1. The relation between cystic hygromas and soft tissues of the neck is most clearly demonstrated at MRI cisticco.

Articles Cases Courses Quiz. Content is updated monthly with systematic literature reviews and conferences. Most of times, lymphangiomas are diagnosed at the second and third trimesters of gestation, and identified as multiseptated, thin-walled cystic masses in the fetal head and neck region 8.

There are four histological types of lymphangiomas: This fact was confirmed by the higdoma cases where MRI was more accurate than US in the evaluation of the lesions extent, demonstrating the invasion of adjacent structures, with extension towards the pinna of the fetus in one case, and towards the upper mediastinum in another one.

Evaluation of citico cervical lymphangioma by magnetic resonance imaging and correlation with sonographic findings. In higromz of cases, the condition is asymptomatic and the size of the lesions is variable 2. At 21 weeks, there was no fetal heartbeat and spontaneous elimination of the fetus occurred two days later.

At MRI, two lesions presented hypointense signal on T1-weighted sequence and hyperintense on T2-weighted sequence, with hypointense thin septations inside on both sequences fetuses 2 and 3and one was heterogeneous, with a higorma hyperintense signal on the T2-weighted sequence fetus 1 Figure 2.


Zen 1, 3 ; Rafael Fabiano M. Subdural hygroma versus atrophy on MR brain scans: All the lesions were found in the posterior and lateral cervical space. Subdural hygromas refer to the accumulation of fluid in the subdural space.

Hematology and Oncology Chapter. Sanders RC, Blakemore K.

Moreover, the diagnosis was important to assess the prognosis. The vast majority of patients with subdural hygroma are asymptomatic without radiographic evidence of mass-effect, and thus neurosurgical intervention is rarely required 5.

A correct prenatal diagnosis is extremely important, considering that, although cystic hygromas may be isolated malformations 1these lesions are frequently associated with other chromosomal abnormalities, such as Turner syndrome and Down syndrome 1,2,10that should be immediately investigated in case of suspicious diagnosis 8.

Case 5 Case 5. Subdural hygromas are encountered in all age-groups but are overall most common in the elderly 7. US is the method of choice for screening fetal malformations First-trimester screening revealed an increased nuchal translucency measurement, cervical cystic hygroma and head and trunk subcutaneous edema. The newborns two girls and one boy were submitted to surgery right after the birth, except for one of them who was evaluated by MRI after one week of life to restudy the lesion extent, confirming the pre-natal findings.

You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys. In cases of lymphangiomas, the method determines more accurately the lesion extent and its relationship with the adjacent structures, allowing a more appropriate surgical planning.
