Case report


A 27-year-old woman (G1P0) with non-contributive history was sent to our office at 11 weeks, 1 day of gestational age. Our examination revealed a wide defect of the fetal abdominal wall with gastroschisis and ectopia of the heart, corresponding to diagnosis of Cantrell syndrome. The pregnancy was terminated.

Images 1-4: 11 weeks, 1 day of gestational age; Images show sagittal and transverse scans of the fetus with gastroschisis and ectopically placed heart of the fetus (easily recognizable on the color Doppler images 3 and 4). Nuchal translucency was also increased (images 1, 2).
