Abstract

Ileal duplication cysts within a giant omphalocele are very rare. Only a few cases have been reported in the English literature (4). We report one case of giant omphalocele, which included a huge ileal duplication cyst, detected by prenatal US, and diagnosed at surgery after birth. This case illustrates the diagnostic and therapeutic problems occurring during pregnancy and the neonatal period.
