Midwives - Choroid Plexus Cysts, do you mention them?

  1. If you have a patient that goes for a second tri ultrasound and there is mention of a choroid plexus cyst, just all on it's own, do you mention it to the patient if you see it in the ultrasound report?

    I am hearing CPCs are nothing to worry about, that they go away on their own by around 28 wks, and that there is just a weak link to trisomy 18. That it is a "soft marker", but all on it's own it seems to be nothing for concern.

    My baby has one (found on 18w ultrasound last week), and the tech didn't get a good look at the heart or spine so my midwife is having me go for another ultrasound in 4 weeks.

    I'm just wondering in your personal experience, do you see a lot of babies with this turn out to have T-18?

    Most CPC's go away on their own...only once in a while we see a full termer with it and that child doesn't have T18. They are almost always a benign finding.
