Cystic masses of the umbilical cord have been detected in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy in association with fetal abdominal wall defects and chromosomal anomalies. We present a case of an umbilical cord pseudocyst diagnosed using routine ultrasound at the 20 weeks of gestation. Serial sonography followed the progression of the cystic masses. A 2960-g male infant was delivered at term, in whom a patent urachus was detected. The infant underwent repair with closure of the patent urachus and plastic reconstruction of the abdominal wall, and the postoperative course was uneventful. This case demonstrated an uneventful outcome despite the persistent multiple cord cysts.
