Abstract

Ultrasonic examination in a thirty‐eight year old woman about to undergo midtrimester amniocentesis suggested an intra‐abdominal fetal mass confirmed by amniography. The mass was a grossly distended urinary bladder. The patient aborted spontaneously before chromosome analysis demonstrated a 47,XY, + 18 karyotype.
