Abstract

The level of pituitary hormones was measured in the serum and cysts' aspirate in a case of hyperreactio luteinalis (HL) complicating non-immune hydrops fetalis. The level of follicular stimulating hormone (FSH), prolactin and growth hormone (GH) was within normal range for pregnancy in both the serum and cysts' aspirate. The importance of increased luteinizing hormone (LH) level which was demonstrated in the cysts' fluid should further be determined.
