Congenital abnormalities of the umbilical venous system are rare. A case of fatal right congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) in association with an anomalous umbilical vein bypassing the liver and directly entering the right atrium is presented. The ductus venosus was absent. Although much of the liver was within the right hemithorax, radiographs showed an apparently normal umbilical venous catheter (UVC) course, suggesting a normally positioned liver and mitigating against the diagnosis of CDH. Aberrant umbilical drainage, yielding a falsely normal appearing UVC course, may delay the diagnosis of CDH.
