Progress in the last three decades in prenatal genetic diagnosis and advancement in prenatal
imaging and characterization of fetal anomalies have allowed better preparation in family counseling
and afforded the opportunity to consider prenatal treatment for congenital defects that would have fatal
outcomes, among them the fetal tumors. Advances in fetal therapy and surgical approaches including
minimally invasive procedures, have permitted not just the survival of rare tumor cases but improved
long-term outcomes. In this review, we described some of the most common fetal tumors and their recommended
management with emphasis on in utero treatment options.
