Arthrogryposes – multiple joint contractures – are a clinically and etiologically heterogeneous class of diseases, where accurate diagnosis, recognition of the underlying pathology and classification are of key importance for the prognosis as well as for the selection of appropriate management.

Mesenteric cyst

A mesenteric cyst is suggested when an avascular, thin-walled, anechoic midline cystic intraabdominal mass is identified in the fetus. These cysts can be uni- or multilocular, and of variable size and multilocular cysts can extend to the abdominal wall, buttocks, or fetal legs. They are thought to arise from obstructed lymphatic drainage.
