INTRODUCTION: Dilatation of the fetal intra-abdominal umbilical vein is a rare entity. It is unclear whether prenatally diagnosed umbilical vein dilatation is associated with an increased risk of fetal anomalies or poor perinatal outcome. Umbilical artery waveform notching may be a predictor of cord abnormalities. It seems reasonable following the baby closely after the diagnosis of both conditions.
CASE REPORT AND DISCUSSION: We present here a new case diagnosed by ultrasonography at 30 weeks of gestation with normal fetal outcome and discuss the clinical features and the management of these rare abnormalities.
