MRI also plays a significant role in the differential diagnosis of this disease, especially with encephalocele, cervical myelomeningocele, teratoma and hemangioma 8that present different prognosis, requiring different management. This fact was confirmed by the present cases where MRI was more accurate than US in the evaluation of the lesions extent, demonstrating the invasion of adjacent structures, with extension towards the pinna of the fetus in cisrico case, and towards the upper mediastinum in another one.


MRI has been recognized as a useful complementary method, especially in cases where US results are dubious or undetermined 5,7,11, Case 6 Case 6.

Use of the fluid obtained by puncture of cystic hygroma: The use of CH fluid, obtained through direct hygroma puncture, can be used as an alternative procedure 2.


The present study evaluated three pregnant women referred by Instituto Fernandes Figueira, Rio de Janeiro, higromz the finding of fetal cervical cystic mass at obstetric US.

All the lesions under suspicion of being cervical lymphangiomas at obstetric US were higromx by MRI that, similarly to the previous and comparative US studies, evaluated the lesions site, size and content.

Vessels rarely cross through the lesion in contrast-enhanced studies see cortical vein sign 1. Case 4 Case 4.

In most of cases, the condition is asymptomatic and the size of the lesions is variable 2. In two cases of the present study, the lesions were hypointense on T1-weighted sequences, and hyperintense on T2-weighted sequences, with thin septations inside.

Ascites was also noted later.
