We refer you to a well-researched Website on E-Medicine Journal by the World Medical Library : Hydrops Fetalis.

We have looked in many directions because many heterogeneous disorders result in hydrops fetalis on the one hand and on the other hand, our case is quite complex with significant dysmorphism on top of hydrops.
