Resum

Mirror syndrome is a rare condition that involves fetal hydrops, placentomegaly and severe maternal edema. The pathogenesis of this syndrome mimics endothelial dysfunction observed in pre-eclampsia. We report a case of maternal mirror syndrome caused by bilateral fetal hydrothorax that resolved after intrauterine pleuroamniotic shunt placement. At the time of the clinical manifestation there was an antiangiogenic state similar to that seen in pre-eclampsia, which resolved after fetal treatment. Our findings suggest that mirror syndrome is a manifestation of a broad spectrum of pathological conditions that induces an antiangiogenic state. Copyright © 2012 ISUOG.
