Hydrops foetalis is the most severe manifestation of haemolytic disease in the foetus or neonate. There is gross oedema of the whole foetal body and hepatosplenomegaly associated with severe anaemia.

Depending on the cause, the infant may die before or shortly after birth. Prompt treatment of the underling cause during pregnancy or after birth may be of benefit.
