Mirror syndrome is a rare disease associated with a high fetal mortality
of up to 67.2%. It is thought to be underdiagnosed and is often
mistaken for preeclampsia. Mirror syndrome is characterized by ‘triple
edema’: generalized maternal, placental, and fetal edema. A
comprehensive search of several databaseswas conducted. Mirror syndrome
is associated with high fetal morbidity and mortality; it is an
important differential diagnosis with pre-eclampsia and thought to be
currently underdiagnosed. Minimal is known about its pathogenesis.
Maternal symptoms usually regress with resolution of pregnancy and
management is dependent on the cause of fetal hydrops.
