A case of omphalocele associated with teratoma in a new born baby: a very rare case report
Keywords:Omphalocele, Teratoma, Children
An omphalocele is a congenital midline abdominal wall defect at the level of the umbilical cord insertion into the fetal abdomen that results in herniation of intra-abdominal contents into a sac comprising of an outer layer of amnion and an inner layer of peritoneum. The most common eviscerated contents are liver and small intestine though virtually any organ can be seen within the omphalocele sac including colon, pancreas, spleen, omentum, stomach, heart or genitalia. We report an unusual case of omphalocele associated with mature teratoma in Tripura medical college and DR. BRAM teaching hospital. Only five cases of teratoma arising in a case of omphalocele are reported in the literature reviewed.
