MR imaging findings in fetal goiter caused by maternal graves disease.
Antenatal diagnosis of fetal goiter should be appropriately managed to avoid perinatal complications. Here, we present the MR imaging features of a fetal goiter caused by maternal Graves disease. Diffusely enlarged fetal thyroid gland was seen showing homogeneously elevated signal on T1-weighted images and intermediate signal on T2-weighted images. To our knowledge, this is the first MR imaging documentation of fetal goiter.
