Özet

In this case series, we aimed to determine the outcome of prenatally diagnosed fetal cardiac rhabdomyoma. This case series is a retrospective evaluation of seven cases of fetal cardiac rhabdomyoma determined during pregnancy. Only one of these cases has been associated with tuberous sclerosis (TS). Two of the cases had just a single tumor, whereas the others were found to have multiple tumors. Termination was performed to one fetus due to hydrops fetalis. The presence of risk factors of TS in a family and multifocal or large tumors, appears to be the most important factors affecting neonatal outcomes.
