In some studies of fetal thymus volume, fetal stress factors; infection, preterm premature premature rupture of membranes, preeclampsia, preterm delivery risk.

Generally, there is a direct correlation between fetal growth and thymus volume and it was observed that thymus volume decreased in pregnancies accompanied by fetal stress factors.The aim of this study was to measure fetal thymus volume in second trimester twin pregnancies and to investigate whether there is a statistically significant correlation between preterm birth risk pregnancies.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The condition of carrying TWINS simultaneously.

Passage of blood from one fetus to another via an arteriovenous communication or other shunt, in a monozygotic twin pregnancy. It results in anemia in one twin and polycythemia in the other. (Lee et al., Wintrobe's Clinical Hematology, 9th ed, p737-8)

A condition of abnormally low AMNIOTIC FLUID volume. Principal causes include malformations of fetal URINARY TRACT; FETAL GROWTH RETARDATION; GESTATIONAL HYPERTENSION; nicotine poisoning; and PROLONGED PREGNANCY.

Pregnancy complication where fetal blood vessels, normally inside the umbilical cord, are left unprotected and cross FETAL MEMBRANES. It is associated with antepartum bleeding and FETAL DEATH and STILLBIRTH due to exsanguination.

A condition occurring in the female offspring of dizygotic twins (TWIN, DIZYGOTIC) in a mixed-sex pregnancy, usually in CATTLE. Freemartinism can occur in other mammals. When placental fusion between the male and the female FETUSES permits the exchange of fetal cells and fetal hormones, TESTICULAR HORMONES from the male fetus can androgenize the female fetus producing a sterile XX/XY chimeric "female"(CHIMERISM).
