Hidropesía fetal

Es una afección seria del feto o del recién nacido, en la cual se acumulan cantidades anormales de líquido en dos o más áreas corporales, causando hinchazón. La hinchazón grave puede interferir con la forma como trabajan los órganos del cuerpo y, con frecuencia, provoca la muerte del bebé poco antes o después del parto.
