J Postgrad Med Inst Jan ;15(1):56-60.
This one year study was done in Lady Reading Hospital to see the incidence and causative factors of non immune hydrops fetalis. The advent of anti Rh has led to marked reduction in immune hydrops fetalis. During this time period total 6 cases out of 5149 admission were detected for which a protocol was made. During this study deficiencies of the facilities were noticed due to which cause could not be established in 2 out of 6 cases. Due to expected poor fetal out come there was lack of interest on behalf of the parents. All the babies were delivered preterm with 100% perinatal mortality. Overall this project provided the unit a protocol for these cases as the management of non-immunological hydrops completely differs from immunological hydrops.
