Case report: Antenatal diagnosis of congenital high airway obstruction syndrome - laryngeal atresia.

Garg MK - Indian J Radiol Imaging (2008)

Bottom Line: Congenital high airway obstruction syndrome (CHAOS) is a near fatal condition of multifactorial inheritence, in which the fetus has a dilated trachea, enlarged echogenic lungs, an inverted or flattened diaphagram, and ascites.A case of CHAOS, diagnosed antenatally on USG at 28 weeks of gestation, is being reported here.

Figure 0001: USG of the fetus in the coronal plane, at the level of the thorax shows a dilated trachea (white arrow). The black arrow points towards the flattened diaphragm

Mentions: USG showed a dilated trachea [Figure 1], enlarged hyperechoic lungs, inferiorly displaced and flattened diaphragms [Figures 1 and 2], minimal fetal ascites, excessive amniotic fluid volume (amniotic fluid index: 20 cm), and a small heart because of compression by the obstructed lungs [Figure 2]. These findings were diagnostic of CHAOS. We discussed the possible unfavorable outcome of the pregnancy with the parents who chose not to terminate the pregnancy because of religious reasons.
