The Cause Of The Ultrasound Shows The Presence Of Fluid In The Fetal Head?
I am pregnant at 6 months of pregnancy, right on the ultrasound it turns out there is fluid in the fetal head, is that dangerous? how to handle it? Honestly, I am afraid I can’t even sleep last night because I think of the fetus
Hello, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
The presence of fluid in the fetal head can be caused by several things, namely:
-Spina bifida with hydrocephalus
- and others
But the most common cause is hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus occurs when the production and absorption of brain fluid is not balanced. This condition usually occurs due to infection during pregnancy, developmental abnormalities in the brain, etc.
This condition can be detected from the womb through an ultrasound examination. For further treatment / management you should consult with a gynecologist / obstetrician.
Thank you, hope that helps ..
