Abstract

Isolated fetal pleural effusion is a rare condition with high mortality. When there are no other findings of hydropsfetalis or documented etiology such as inflammatory, iatrogenic or cardiac problems exist, isolated pleural effusion is considered. We present a rare case of isolated bilateral fetal pleural effusion diagnosed prenatally on ultrasonography.
