Figure 7: (a-c) Prenatal ultrasound scan of a 21-week-old fetus with major omphalocele: Transverse views through the abdomen show a large anterior abdominal wall defect (block arrows) with extrusion of the liver (circle) and the stomach (star). The umbilical cord (curved arrow) is seen inserting into the sac that covers the herniated viscera. The umbilical vein (color) is seen entering the extruded content. (d) Picture of the baby postdelivery confirming the omphalocele evidenced by the large anterior abdominal wall defect with extrusion of the abdominal contents (star) which are covered by a jelly-like membrane (thin arrow)
