Abstract
BACKGROUND
Mirror syndrome (MS) is a rare obstetric condition usually defined as the development of maternal edema in association with fetal hydrops. The pathogenesis of MS remains unclear and may be misdiagnosed as pre-eclampsia.

CASE PRESENTATION
We report a case series of MS in which fetal therapy (intrauterine blood transfusion and pleuroamniotic shunt) resulted in fetal as well as maternal favourable course with complete resolution of the condition in both mother and fetus.

CONCLUSIONS
Our case series add new evidence to support that early diagnosis of MS followed by fetal therapy and clinical maternal support are critical for a good outcome.
