Thus, the main etiology of hydrops fetalis has changed in recent years in favour
of non- immunological causes (3, 24). NIHF can be ascribed to maternal,
placental and fetal causes (5) , (Fig. 1). Sonographic examination is principally
the best method of identifying edema or serous effusions, especially in utero. At
the same time it is possible to establish other criteria for the diagnosis, prognosis
and eventually pre- and/or postpartal therapy. The etiology could be detected in
an ...

management. Many effusions may remain unresolved for years, and yet not
seriously affect the ...
