Ultrasound is well recognized imaging modality for prenatal diagnosis of fetal congenital anomalies. However, precise diagnosis of fetal anomaly with gray scale ultrasound may not be possible at times. Color Doppler ultrasound compliments gray scale ultrasound in accurately diagnosing fetal anomaly. We report a case of an omphalocele with short lower limbs, diagnosed during 3rd trimester on the basis of color Doppler ultrasound. Gray scale ultrasound failed to diagnose the condition initially. Color Doppler sonography helped in accurate diagnosis. Findings were confirmed after termination of pregnancy.
