Abstract

We present a case of the Goldston syndrome which is the association of polycystic kidneys with Dandy-Walker malformation. The diagnosis was made by ultrasound in twenty second week of gestation. Obstetric ultrasound and fetal MRI studies showed hydrocephalus, agenesis of the cerebellar hemispheres, vermian hypoplasia, cystic dilatation of the 4th ventricle, enlargement of the posterior fossa, abdominal distension, and oligohydramnios.. The kidneys were symmetrically enlarged and multicystic. To our knowledge this is the third reported case of Goldston syndrome which was diagnosed during intrauterine life.
