In brief: Hydrops fetalis (HF)
Hf is divided into two major categories: immune hf and nonimmune hf.
Immune hydrops fetalis is caused by rh incompatibility, and used to be the most common cause. All other causes of hf are termed non-immune and may be caused by chromosomal aberrations, other genetic disorders, infections, anemias, structural birth defects such as congenital heart disease, and many other causes.
