2012:Volume 2 Issue 2 Cystic hygroma: a differential diagnosis for increased nuchal tranlucency BY Laxmi V Yaliwal, MS, DNB, Sunilkumar KS, MS, DNB, Rathnamala M Desai, MS Shyamsundar KJoshi, MD Abstract Cystic hygroma is a congenital malformation of the lymphatics. Nuchal translucency(NT) is markedly increased in cystic hygroma. Cystic hygroma is associated with aneuploidies, adverse obstetrical and perinatal outcomes. First-trimester nuchal NT measurement with the help of ultrasound is a widely used technique to determine the risk of fetal aneuploidy. Diagnosis should be made early and thoroughly in order to carry out chorionic villus sampling to determine the karyotype early.
