Abstract

Bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS), a non-functional pulmonary tissue mass, when complicated by fetal hydrops, carries a high risk of perinatal mortality. However, a limited number of cases of BPS complicated by fetal hydrops with an informative clinical course have been reported. We report here on three cases of BPS complicated by fetal hydrothorax and hydrops that were successfully treated by pleuroamniotic shunting, which should be considered as a treatment option for fetal hydrothorax and hydrops associated with BPS.
