Ductus venosus connecting the portal and embryonic venous circulation into the inferior vena cava has a crucial role in fetal circulation. The absence of ductus venosus is a rare anomaly, in which the umbilical vein connection to the venous system may be extrahepatic, bypassing the liver or intrahepatic via the portal venous system. We report three cases of ductus venosus agenesis with associated anomalies. In two of them the connection was directly to the right atrium, whereas the umbilical vein drained to the left internal iliac artery in the third case. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
