Abstract

Omphalocele is one of the most common congenital abdominal wall defects. It is normally associated with other anomalies and isolated cases of omphalocele are rare. It is frequently detected prenatally due to routine maternal serum screening and fetal ultrasound. We report a case of congenital anomalies in a female newborn infant, born to the mother from a hill tribe. The baby presented exomphalos of intestine and liver with mild hydrocephalus. Its right lower limb was normal and the left lower limb was very short.
