  • Triploidy
    : Antenatal Sonographic Features with Post-mortem
    correlation


        

    Mittal
    TK, Vujanic GM, Morrissey BM, et al (Univ. Hosp. Of 
    Wales, Cardiff)

    Prenat
    Diagn 18:1253-1262,1998

          

    Recently,
    the largest series of triploidy to date was
    reported, describing the antenatal US scan features
    in great detail. 
    However postmortem findings were not
    included.  The
    current study compared antenatal US scan features
    with postmortem findings to facilitate the
    sonographic diagnosis and define its limitations.

         

    The
    most common fetal defects-ventriculomegaly,
    syndactyly, atrioventricular conduction, growth
    retardation, and micrognathia, are not often
    obvious. In
    summary, triploidy should be suspected in all cases
    of partial mole when the placenta contains several
    areas of focal sonolucency representing vesicles or
    when severe IUGR occurs in the second trimester.
