Keywords:Hernia of umbilical cord, Evisceration of bowel, Patent vitellointestinal duct, Neonatal intestinal obstruction, Intestinal atresia, Colonic stenosis
Congenital hernia of umbilical cord is a less frequent entity in newborns and occasionally associated with other maladies. Herein, we report three cases of hernia of umbilical cord. First case was associated with in-utero evisceration of entire small bowel through the presumably ruptured hernia of umbilical cord and other two cases had associated patent vitellointestinal duct (PVID). All of the cases were managed successfully.
