Re: Choroid Plaxis Cysts on Ultrasound

My midwife explained that for many babies CPC's are almost a developmental thing: they occur in upwards of 50% of babies and dissolve on their own, it's just a matter of when you have your ultrasound if you happen to catch them. They're seen most often in ultrasound done at 17-20 weeks. That's why the next course of action is always-always-always another ultrasound in 4-6 weeks. That is plenty of time for the cysts to resolve themselves.
Also, the fact that your baby ONLY has cysts and NO other markers is excellent. According to the Trisomy 18 Foundation, if a baby only has one marker on the ultrasound it is HIGHLY unlikely that they have T18. It's such a profoundly affecting defect that it is nearly impossible for there to be only one symptom, even in mosaic T18. HTH!
