PMID:  476024     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A patient is presented in whom ultrasonic examination at 39 weeks detected fetal exomphalos with an intact sac and no associated gross abnormalities. These findings served as major indications for the safe delivery by Caesarean section of a baby that survived and had successful corrective surgery when 6 months old. The infant might well not have survived vaginal delivery.
