could be observed in inner cavity of diseased crab, while the healthy crab remained with golden yellow hepatopuncreas (Figure 1).
IV Fetal hydrops
Abnomal collection of fluid in at least two different fetal organ spaces (in one or both twins).
Patients with their blood pressure and plasma random glucose checked and a history of hypertension, diabetes, previous adverse fetal outcome, intrauterine growth retardation and fetal hydrops
is a consequence of a disturbance in the homeostasis of endolymph.
Clinical investigation revealed a normal range of motion in a stable knee, no hydrops
, and a little pressure soreness over the medial tibial plateau.
In view of the early gestation, severity of the hydrops
, absence of an overt treatable cause and lack of an intensive care bed at the time, the mother agreed to defer active intervention while awaiting special investigations (infectious work-up negative), betamethasone administration and maternal stabilisation.
Subsequently, an abdominal computer tomography (abdomen-CT) was performed which confirmed the gallbladder hydrops
and acalculous gallbladder.
Spontaneous twin anemia-polycythemia sequence complicated by recipient placental vascular thrombosis and hydrops
Fluid was building up in her baby's chest and crushing her lungs, a symptom of a very, very rare condition known as hydrops
Due to concern for sudden death ofthe fetus and hydrops
, a caesarean section delivery was scheduled and performed at 31 weeks gestation.
The 20 chapters explain perinatal autopsy, techniques, and classifications; placental examination; the fetus at less than 15 weeks gestation; stillbirth and intrauterine growth restriction; hydrops
fetalis; the pathology of twinning and higher multiple pregnancy; patterns in genetic conditions; the metabolic disease autopsy; the abnormal heart; the central nervous system; significant congenital abnormalities of the respiratory, digestive, and renal systems; skeletal dysplasias; congenital tumors; complications of prematurity; intrapartum and neonatal death; sudden unexpected death in infancy; infections and malnutrition; the role of magnetic resonance imaging and radiology in post mortems; and the forensic post mortem.
