Reported cases of isolated fetal ascites determined to be idiopathic have been shown to carry a favorable prognosis with frequent spontaneous resolution in utero (1,2,3). These cases generally reported better fetal outcomes with delivery of normal neonates as compared to cases with associated conditions such as gastrointestinal and genitourinary abnormalities, intrauterine infections, and overlapping cases with hydrops (1). No existing reports of antenatally resolving fetal ascites with a discovered gastrointestinal anomaly describe concurrent resolution of the underlying abnormality without surgical correction or postpartum regression with medical management In this case, fetal ascites was prenatally diagnosed on ultrasound at 32 weeks secondary to a suspected gastrointestinal abnormality and was found to have spontaneously resolved in utero with a normal neonatal course.
