PMID:  12378469     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A small omphalocele was diagnosed and followed up prenatally. Ultrasonography examinations and clinical examination at birth were all consistent with an isolated, small omphalocele. Immediate surgical exploration at birth found an associated type I intestinal atresia. This rare association and the need for immediate postnatal management of omphalocele are discussed, and the literature is reviewed.
