Abstract Mirror syndrome is a triad consisting of fetal hydrops, maternal edema and placentomegaly. Its pathogenesis is unclear and it is frequently mistaken for preeclampsia, even though distinguishing features can be identified. It is associated with an increase in fetal mortality and maternal morbility. We report an uncommon case of mirror syndrome, which appeared late in pregnancy (38 weeks) in a young nulliparous and characterized by sudden and massive vulvar edema, with placentomegaly and hydramnios but without fetal hydrops.
