Three women, aged 28, 27 and 25 years, two primigravidae and one woman who had given birth to a hydropic child previously, had four pregnancies with hydrops of the foetus and the placenta: two (in the same patient) due to foetal cardiomyopathy and two with foetal heart block. The patients developed severe oedema and preeclampsia. After the delivery they recovered well. Since the introduction of anti-D rhesus immunoprophylaxis, foetal hydrops has become less frequent. The resulting maternal complications (the maternal hydrops syndrome and enlarged polycystic ovaries) are therefore less well-known. Serious maternal complications occur in around 50% of cases of foetal hydrops. Careful monitoring of the maternal condition in cases of foetal hydrops is therefore warranted.
