An antepartum diagnosis of vasa previa was considered in a patient in whom ultrasound revealed pulsatile loops of cord overlying the cervical os. This diagnosis was confirmed at the time of cesarean delivery. We offer a literature review of vasa previa and make recommendations for using ultrasonography to diagnose vasa previa.
