MATERIALS AND METHODS: An infant was born with a congenital colocutaneous fistula to the right of the base of the umbilicus, along with distal small bowel atresia. RESULTS: These findings produced a unique presentation of a prenatally closed gastroschisis with absorption of the extruded intestine. CONCLUSION: This child, like all five previously reported infants with prenatally closed gastroschisis, died from complications of short-gut syndrome.
