Fetal hydrothorax were diagnosed during ultrasound examination in asymptomatic women in the second trimester of pregnanancy.1 Fetal hydrothorax is a condition in which fluid accumulates in the fetal chest, in the space between the lungs and the chest wall (known as the pleural space). This fluid may also be referred to as “pleural effusion.” Fetal hydrothorax usually develops when there are leaky or obstructed veins or lymphatic channels. occasionally, the fluid leakage may result from a mass (such as a lung mass), infection or chromosome problem, but in many instances no specific cause for the leaky fluid may be found.
