Ruptured hemangioma of the umbilical cord and intrauterine fetal death, with review data (Journal article)

Vougiouklakis, T./ Mitselou, A./ Zikopoulos, K./ Dallas, P./ Charalabopoulos, K.

A case of intrauterine fetal death with rupture of a hemangioma in the umbilical cord is presented. Hemangiomas are uncommon tumors of the umbilical cord, and their clinical significance is not entirely clear, but associations with polyhydramnios, fetal disseminated intravascular coagulation, and fetal hydrops have been described. In a high proportion of the umbilical cord hemangiomas reported in the literature (32 cases), the fetus had died in utero as in the present case and only ten cases were vital and completely normal infants. Associated malformations and complications of the umbilical cord hemangioma are reviewed.
