Case report

A 29 year-old woman (G2P1), with unremarkable history, went to our clinic for a routine ultrasound at 29 weeks of pregnancy. The first child was born at term and healthy. The first and second trimester screening had no abnormal record. At 29 weeks of pregnancy we found a lateral dacryocystocele combined with a lateral ventricle of 9mm.
The ultrasound at 34 weeks found a ductus arteriosus aneurysm without any other anomalies.
Findings were isolated and not related to any genetic disorder.
