Abstract

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.
