Fetal meconium peritonitis; issues in prenatal diagnosis and postnatal outcome

Abstract

Diagnosis of meconium peritonitis (MP) in the prenatal period is a rare event. The reports of prenatal diagnosis and postnatal follow up of MP are limited in number. We report analysis of five such cases, which would serve as a reminder that many of these can be managed effectively and prenatal counseling needs to take this fact into account.
