Abstract

A diagnostic flow chart is presented for use in case of perinatal death or still birth with non-immune hydrops fetalis, visceral effusions, or increased nuchal translucency. Immunohistochemical staining with CD-31, CD-34, D2-40, and smooth muscle actin is recommended.

Keywords: perinatal mortality, non-immune hydrops, lymphatic dysplasia, immunohistochemistry, flow chart
