We describe the case of a 33-week preterm infant who developed nonimmune hydrops fetalis secondary to a kaposiform hemangioendothelioma (KHE). The tumor was successfully treated with vincristine, prednisone, ticlopidine, and aspirin. KHE can be an unusual cause of hydrops fetalis; in such cases, diagnosis can be challenging since generalized edema can obscure KHE.
