Triple marker test showing to cysts. should i worry?


Hello doctor

Triple marker test done in 19 was all normal,

except it shows two cysts measuring 4 mm and 3 mm have seen in the choroid plexus.

my doctor said it is all will disappear afterwards. now I am 25 weeks.

shall I go for next ultrasound to check if the cysts have disappeared or not?Is there a chance for any complication?

please suggest me something.

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Choroid plexus cyst on ultrasound can be seen many times as an isolated finding and is not of much importance unless there is any other marker also or positive triple test. We generally do not advice any advanced test except for repeat level 3 scan with fetal echo may be after 4 weeks for you and that is at this time of your pregnancy.
    Amniocentesis is to be done, if associated abnormal findings or any significant past or family history is there.
    Chances of having trisomy may be there though, it is rare. You should not worry and just do monitoring as advised. Unnecessary worrying about rare things will only increase your stress level.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
