Case report

The following images revealed a case of a young woman with unremarkable history who came to our unit at 24 weeks of gestation.
Because of the findings we performed a pericardiocentesis due to compresion of the heart and the left lung at 28 weeks, and we needed to do it twice.
The baby was delivered through C-section at 35 weeks of gestation and a surgery was performed at the second day of baby´s life.
Here the images that we obtained pre and postnatally:

Images 1 and 2; videos 1 and 2.


Images 3 and 4.
