Abstract

The most common fetal neck masses include teratomas and lymphangiomas. Goiters and hemangiomas are relatively rare. Correct diagnosis of tumor type is important because these neck tumors differ in prognosis and treatment. The prenatal diagnosis of cavernous hemangiomas in the fetal neck has been reported previously. The characteristic sonographic and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of cavernous hemangiomas are increased or pulsatile flow signals in the mass with hyperintensity on T2-weighed images. However, the prenatal sonographic and MRI features of capillary hemangiomas are not well described. In this report, we describe a giant fetal neck capillary hemangioma associated with Kasabach-Merritt syndrome (KMS) and discuss the prenatal sonographic and MRI features of capillary hemangiomas.
