How do cystic hygromas affect pregnancy?

A Answers (1)

  • Many cystic hygromas are found during routine ultrasounds. If your doctor notices that your child has a cystic hygroma, more tests, such as an amniocentesis or further ultrasounds, may be recommended. These tests are important because many cases of cystic hygromas in fetuses are a sign of another birth defect or disorders.
