Abstract

Omphalocele is often, associated with various abnormalities. In two patients admitted with omphalocele, we additionally found defects both in the pars stenalis of diaphragm and in the diaphragmatic surface of the pericardium, sternal defect and tetralogy of Fallot. These entities form the components of a syndrome, named pentalogy of Cantrell. It is extremely in the spectrum of midline closure defects that display wide variations and its incidence is very low. Existing cardiac defect is the most important factor influencing morbidity and mortality. Herein we report two cases of pentalogy of Cantrell with the review of the syndrome in the light of literature.
