Blake’s pouch cyst: Prenatal diagnosis and management
Objective: This study aimed to present the characteristic features of 19 patients who were diagnosed as having Blake’s pouch cyst (BPC) at our center.Materials and Methods: Nineteen patients diagnosed as BPC between 2015 and 2019 were included in this retrospective study. Follow-up examinationswere performed using ultrasonography (US) every three weeks up to 35 weeks of gestation. Prenatal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed atthe time of diagnosis or during follow-up in 13 patients. MRI or transfontanellar US was performed to confirm the diagnosis of BPC after delivery. Karyotyperesults of eight patients were recorded.Results: Isolated BPC was observed in 9 (47%) patients, and associated anomalies were detected in 10 (53%) patients, including seven (36%) with thecentral nervous system and four (21%) with cardiac anomalies. Two fetuses had abnormal karyotype analysis as trisomy 21 and 13. The MRI report ofeight patients was “differential diagnosis required for Dandy-Walker complex” and only in five (26%) patients, it was reported to be compatible with BPC.Spontaneous resolution was seen in four patients. Postnatal MRI was performed in five patients, and transfontanellar US in two patients, and all MRI and USresults were consistent with BPC. During the neonatal period, abnormal neurologic development was observed in four (21%) patients, and one (5%) died.Conclusion: Although the prognosis of isolated BPC is very good with healthy neurologic development until advanced ages, death in the early neonatalperiod and abnormal neurologic development may be observed depending on the condition of the associated anomalies
