Vesicoamniotic shunting for fetal obstructive uropathy is beneficial in selected cases. We report a new complication, fetal abdominal wall defect secondary to vesicoamniotic shunting. Placement of the shunt should be as low and as close to the fetal midline as possible in order to reduce the risk of this complication.
