Mirror Syndrome

Mirror syndrome or triple edema or Ballantyne syndrome is a rare disorder affecting pregnant women. It describes the unusual association of fetal and placental hydrops with maternal preeclampsia.[1]

The name “mirror syndrome” refers to the similarity between maternal edema and fetal hydrops. It was first described in 1892 by John William Ballantyne.[2]
