Author information

  • 1Department of Pediatrics, King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.


We report two cases of nonimmune hydrops fetalis diagnosed prenatally. One fetus died in utero, and the second fetus survived and the infant was discharged from the intensive care nursery at 4 weeks of age. A brief review of the literature and the difficulties in arriving at a diagnosis and the management are described, along with certain prognostic factors determining the outcome.
