Case Report

A 30-year old female patient (G6P5) was referred to our unit at 25 weeks of gestation due to polyhydramnios. Her 2nd , 3rd and 5th pregnancies ended in three fetuses with multiple congenital anomalies who died shortly after birth. The causes of those anomalies were not documented.  Her history revealed consanguinity.

Our ultrasound examination confirmed the presence of polyhydramnios and also revealed the following findings:
