Abstract

Gastroschisis is a full-thickness congenital abdominal wall defect usually occurring to the right of the umbilicus. About twenty cases of left-sided gastroschisis have been reported, without reference to the laterality of the umbilical vein. This first case highlights the importance of considering and reporting this association by the perinatal team.
