Case #26

May 26 - June 9, 2000

Submitted by Elke Sleurs, MD, and Luc de Catte, MD, Academic Hospital, Dept. of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Free University of Brussels, Brussels, Belgium

This G3P2 mother  which is treated for an endocrinological condition is at 32 week in the current pregnancy and has delivered 2 normal previous children. This fetus is referred for a second opinion because of fetal hydrocephaly. The ultrasound scan revealed a bilateral ventriculomegaly (not shown) secondary to a lumbo-sacral meningomyelocoele (not shown). These are a few images obtained during the examination as well as a 830 kb video-clip
