Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation Type III with fetal ascites was diagnosed in a 19-week fetus after finding an abnormally elevated maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein value during routine screening. This discovery led to early elective termination of pregnancy. Sonographic evaluation of the fetal thorax is recommended in all cases referred for ultrasound because of unexplained elevation of maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein.
