Abstract

A 33-year-old woman presented at 31 weeks' gestation with polyhydramnios that required repeated amniodrainage. An antenatal scan at 32 weeks showed dilated fetal bowel loops, which were not confirmed on subsequent scans. The amniotic fluid karyotype confirmed 47,XXX. After birth, jejunal obstruction was confirmed. To our knowledge, this is the first report of an association of triple-X syndrome and jejunal atresia.
