This fetus was scanned at 16 weeks, and a cervical mass was observed. Note the spine on the first image. 




3D pictures clearly demonstrate that the mass was attached to the fetus. 



A coronal 3D reconstruction of the cervical spine is also provided. 

There is also a short (200K) videoclip.

No associated anomalies were identified at this time. The cerebral anatomy, including the infratentorial structures was considered normal, without an Arnold-Chiari malformation. Nuchal translucency performed at 13 weeks, maternal serum AFP, amniotic fluid AFP and fetal karyotype were normal. 

What is the finding and the anomaly that are represented by the findings ?
