Margaret Furness, MD

Women"s Victoria Hospital, 160 Fullarton Road, Rose Park,South Australia 5067

This is a 25-week fetus presenting with ruptured membranes and almost no amniotic fluid. He is in breech position with hips and one knee flexed. This is a midline sagittal view.

Note the cord not only in the cervix but even in the vagina. The fetus survived and is doing well so far
