Abstract

Abstract

Cystic hygromas are characterized by single or multiple cysts within soft tissue. They may occur in isolation or may be associated with other congenital malformations and can lead to obstructed labour or neonatal asphyxia. Ultrasonography in the prenatal period can be carried out to diagnose congenital cystic hygromas.
