A large mass, with slightly echodense content and calcified wall is characteristic of meconium pseudo cyst (Fig. 50). When it is echofree at US, it appears meconial on MRI (Fig. 51) (Veyrac et al. 2004; Wong et al. 2006). Imaging provides decisive arguments for predicting neonatal surgery: persistent ascitis, large meconial pseudo cyst, dilated small bowel proximal-to a mechanical obstruction.

When the risk is known (heterozygous CFTR mutation) an enzymatic profi le of bowel obstruction is correlated with increased viscosity of intestinal secretions. A normal profi le excludes cystic fibrosis. However, there is a narrow diagnostic window (from 17 to 21 weeks). In case of hyperechogenic fetal bowel, assessment of the amniotic fluid has poor interest, because the abnormal sonographic findings are infrequently observed before 22 weeks. At last, before 22 weeks, the enzymatic profi le is not specific of cystic fibrosis (it may be seen in low intestinal occlusion, trisomy 21).
