Abstract

In a patient in whom preeclampsia developed at 23 weeks' gestation, ultrasonographic examination of the fetus showed enlarged edematous lungs, a compressed fetal heart, severe ascites, fetal hydrops, and placental edema. Autopsy of the hydropic stillborn infant showed laryngeal atresia. The ultrasonographic appearance of this rare malformation is presented.
