Case report

A 26-year-old woman referred to our unit at 21st week of pregnancy. The first trimester screening was normal. We found an isolated omphalocele which contained part of bowels. Amniocentesis revealed normal karyotype (46, XX). The woman delivered at 38th week by a cesarean section. The baby weighted 3600 g and underwent an operation. Postoperative course was normal. Here are a few images that we obtained.
