This second trimester fetus was referred for a cystic pelvic mass. The following images were obtained:

It was subsequently decided to punction the mass. These are the images that were obtained after the punction. A subtle finding is now visible that was not appreciated before the punction. That finding led to propose a new diagnosis. Laboratory results obtained on the fluid supported the new diagnosis.
