Abstract

A case of nonimmune hydrops fetalis in a rhesus monkey was identified by ultrasound. The 68-day fetus exhibited generalized edema, pleural effusion, and mild ascites. Intrauterine fetal demise occurred between 75 and 80 days gestation. Necropsy revealed marked anasarca and a rare cardiac anomaly characterized by aortic and left atrioventricular valve atresia, hypoplasia of the ascending aorta and arch, and absence of the left ventricle.
