The chapter opens with observations on the normal fetal heart and proceeds to a discussion of fetal hydrops and its associated cardiac causes. There follows a treatment of the syndromes associated with congenital heart disease in the fetus. Common congenital heart defects as they appear in the fetus are illustrated. Fetal cardiomyopathy, myocarditis and arrhythmia all have separate discussions. The chapter closes with a series of discussions on the pathology of twins as it affects the heart: twin–twin transfusion syndrome, conjoined twins and acardiac twins.
