A CASE REPORT: PRENATAL DIAGNOSIS OF FETAL CARDIAC RHABDOMYOMA
Fetal cardiac rhabdomyoma is a rare disease, and most of the cases are detected incidentally during the antenatal ultrasound. This is a case discovered during antenatal ultrasonography at 29 weeks of gestation. Multiple hyperechoic round shape masses were seen in the cardiac. After birth, the baby had been under a paediatric cardiologist follow-up with regular echocardiography. Management was mainly conservative at the time being as there was no sign of obstruction.
