722 Possible Causes for Polyhydramnios, Respiratory Distress

  • Hypophosphatasia

    Other clinical findings included polyhydramnios, blue sclerae and spurs in the mid-portion of the forearms and lower legs.[] Immediately after delivery, the baby was admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit because of respiratory distress.[] Review of pregnancy history may reveal polyhydramnios . Skeletal manifestations of the severe cases vary widely among patients.[]

  • Esophageal Atresia

    Except a late suspicion of EA (one day before delivery), EA was not diagnosed during prenatal scans despite association with polyhydramnios in two cases and single umbilical[] Distress Syndrome, Newborn/diagnosis Respiratory Distress Syndrome, Newborn/drug therapy* Respiratory Distress Syndrome, Newborn/etiology Respiratory Distress Syndrome, Newborn[] The likelihood of an atresia is increased by the presence of polyhydramnios.[]

  • Polyhydramnios

    There are two clinical varieties of polyhydramnios: chronic polyhydramnios where excess amniotic fluid accumulates gradually, and acute polyhydramnios where excess amniotic[] Multivariate logistic regression revealed that polyhydramnios was associated only with postnatal respiratory distress and hypoglycemia.[] At birth, the infant had severe muscle weakness and respiratory distress. He had high titres of anti-acetylcholine receptor (anti-AChR) antibodies of maternal origin.[]

  • Tracheal Agenesis

    The patient was born of a mother with mosaic Turner's syndrome at 35 weeks of gestation after premature rupture of the membranes during treatment for polyhydramnios.[] Tracheal agenesis is an extremely rare, usually fatal, congenital anomaly presenting with respiratory distress and aphonia.[] Polyhydramnios and suspected esophageal atresia were identified during routine pre-natal ultrasound screening.[]

  • Multiple Pregnancy

    Polyhydramnios. Placental site. X-ray If ultrasound is not available it can detect foetal heads and vertebral columns.[] distress syndrome (average RR 1.70, 95% CI 0.15 to 18.77, three trials, n 116).[] Recipient twin: polycythemia ; polyhydramnios in diamniotic pregnancies Donor twin: anemia , dehydration , growth retardation ; oligohydramnios in diamniotic pregnancies Increased[]

  • Oligohydramnios

    According Desmedt et al, there is a 61% perinatal mortality in polyhydramnios associated with a fetal or placental malformation. [6] About 20% of infants with polyhydramnios[] Clinically, all of the newborn infants had unique faces and evidence of respiratory distress with tachypnea, cyanosis, intercostal retractions, nasal flaring and grunting[] Airway obstruction must be included in the differential diagnosis of respiratory distress occurring in the context of severe oligohydramnios.[]

  • Hydrops Fetalis

    We evaluated outcomes of fetal or neonatal death and preterm birth (PTB) in cases of NIHF alone and in those with polyhydramnios and/or placentomegaly (P/PM).[] The infant was born without respiratory distress, and tumor resection was performed at the age of 30 days.[] CONCLUSIONS: In this large, population-based study, prematurity, polyhydramnios, and large for gestational age were predictors of increased mortality.[]

  • Amniotic Fluid Embolism

    Abstract A 41-year-old multigravida presented at 32 weeks of gestation with polyhydramnios and an anencephalic fetus.[] By exclusion of other causes, we diagnosed severe maternal acute respiratory distress due to the amniotic fluid embolism syndrome in a twin pregnancy.[] […] nearly 70-fold higher association with AFE, cerebrovascular disorders had a 25-fold higher association, while conditions such as eclampsia, renal disease, placenta previa and polyhydramnios[]

  • X-Linked Centronuclear Myopathy

    Signs of antenatal onset are frequent and comprise reduced fetal movements and polyhydramnios. Thinning of the ribs is observed on chest radiographs of the newborn.[] Each of them presented with generalized hypotonia, weakness, difficulty in swallowing, and respiratory distress at birth.[] An isolated case with severe fetal brady-arrhythmias in combination with acute increase in polyhydramnios is mentioned.[]

  • Isolated Tracheo-Esophageal Fistula

    In addition, there was evidence of polyhydramnios. These findings were the result of esohageal atresia.[] The neonate with EA typically has frothing and bubbling at the mouth and nose after birth as well as episodes of coughing, cyanosis, and respiratory distress.[] Saliva, fluids feeding the newborn, or digestive fluids may enter the trachea through tracheoesophageal fistula, causing coughing, cyanosis and respiratory distress.[]
