Fetal cardiac rhabdomyoma with maternal tuberous sclerosis complicating pregnancy.Arch Gynecol Obstet. 2008 Aug; 278(2):169-70.AG
Tuberous sclerosis is an autosomal dominant disorder of hamartoma formation that can manifest as cardiac or central nervous system lesions and adversely affect maternal and fetal outcome.
We report a case of maternal tuberous sclerosis with fetal cardiac rhabdomyoma detected in utero at 26 weeks gestation.
To conclude, a pregnancy complicated by maternal or fetal tuberous sclerosis deserves careful vigilance and the fetus should undergo prenatal fetal Doppler echocardiography and if possible an MRI, so that parents can be counseled regarding its future prognostic implications.
