Cystic Abnormalities of the Fetal Thorax: Sonographic Evaluation

Jonathan D. Weiss, Harris L. Cohen, Jack O. Haller, Richard G. Mayer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The antenatal diagnoses of three cystic fetal thoracic abnormalities are described. The ultrasound findings led to early postnatal surgical attention and prompt therapeutic intervention. This report will discuss the differential diagnoses of cystic lesions of the fetal chest and stress the importance of antenatal identification.
