An 18-year-old gravida 1 para 0 female was presented at 35 weeks' gestation with severe oligohydramnios. Sonography revealed a fetus with hydrops, bilaterally enlarged echogenic kidneys, and short extremities. The infant died at birth and autopsy was compatible with short-rib polydactyly syndrome type II, Majewski type. Renal histology was consistent with glomerulocystic disease.
