Allantoic cysts of the umbilical cord are extremely rare anomalies. Only few cases have been reported in the postnatal life. The etiopathogenesis is still obscure. We describe a case of allantoic cyst and patent urachus in a newborn associated with hypospadias and meatal obstruction. We also present the review of literature regarding this entity, embryology and etiopathogenesis.
