Abstract

This report describes a case of premature closure in utero of the ductus arteriosus (DA) diagnosed postnatally in a baby with hydrops and cardiac failure. An echocardiogram 6 h postnatally showed marked dilation of the right atrium and right ventricle with marked hypertrophy and impaired function, elevated pulmonary pressures, a small pericardial effusion, and no flow through the DA. The mother was unaware of her pregnancy until she presented in labor, and she had taken diclofenac medication in the preceding months. This case and the accompanying literature review illustrate the potential fetal and neonatal complications resulting from antenatal closure of the DA due to maternal diclofenac medication during pregnancy.
