We report a case of cystic hygroma and diffuse lymphangiectasia detected by sonogram at 12 weeks' gestation. Fetal karyotype was normal. At 20 weeks' gestation, herniation of the bowel into the chest was noted. At delivery, the infant was diagnosed as having Fryns' syndrome. This is the first reported case of Fryns' syndrome presenting with cystic hygroma.
