Abstract

This case report presents a hydroptic trisomy 21 fetus affected by lymphatic dysplasia with no other malformations. Our studies using CD31, CD34, smooth muscle actin, desmin, and D2-40 antibodies immunohistochemistry confirm the diagnosis of severe pulmonary lymphangiectasia associated with lymphangiectasia in the mediastinum and small bowel.

Keywords: pulmonary lymphangiectasia, trisomy 21, hydrops fetalis
