Late Disappearance of Fetal Choroid Plexus Cyst: Case Report and Review of the Literature
04 March 2008 (online)
Ultrasound diagnosis of a lateral ventricle choroid plexus cyst was made in a 20-week gestational age fetus. The cyst remained visible until the 34th week, after which it spontaneously resolved. Persistence of such cysts beyond 23 weeks has been suggested as a poor prognostic sign by some investigators. The importance of serial ultrasound evaluation and fetal karyotyping is discussed.
