Abstract: Background: Polyhydramnios is defined as excessive accumulation of amniotic fluid of more than 2000ml. The reasons of polyhydramnios are either due to impaired foetal swallowing or foetal polyuria or increased placental secretion. Foetal and maternal causes account for 30-40 % of cases, and 60-70 % are idiopathic. An abnormal increase in amniotic fluid volume has been associated with increased frequency of both maternal and fetal complications.
