Languages of publication
Omphalocele is the most common congenital defect of the abdominal wall and in a large percentage of cases it is associated with chromosomal anomalies. In this case report during the regular ultrasound examination at 11 weeks of gestation, omphalocela, whose scope was 90% of fetal abdomen, was diagnosed. Karyotype analysis showed the presence of chromosomal aberrations 47 XX + 18 (Edwards syndrome). After the presentation of the severity of congenital anomalies and characteristic of the Edwards syndrome patient decided to terminate the pregnancy.
