Brief Summary

In some studies of fetal thymus volume, fetal stress factors; infection, preterm premature premature rupture of membranes, preeclampsia, preterm delivery risk. Generally, there is a direct correlation between fetal growth and thymus volume and it was observed that thymus volume decreased in pregnancies accompanied by fetal stress factors.The aim of this study was to measure fetal thymus volume in second trimester twin pregnancies and to investigate whether there is a statistically significant correlation between preterm birth risk pregnancies.
