Abstract

Objectives: To report the antenatal pictures of a fetus with multiple intracranial lipomas. Methods: A 36-year-old primigravida,33 weeks of gestation, was referred to our ultrasound laboratory due to sonographic suspicion of an intracranial hemorrhage. Results: At 2D and 3D ultrasound imaging,three separated round-shaped hyperechoic intracranial masses compatible with multiple lipomas were documented. Absence of corpus callosum was associated. Sonographic findings were confirmed by antenatal and postnatal MRI. Conclusions: Multiple intracranial lipomas in a fetus with absent corpus callosum have been infrequently described.Prognostic implications remain uncertain.
