Abstract

Limb Body wall complex (LBWC) is a rare abdominal wall defect due to failure of the development of the body stalk. The incidence at birth is about 0.32 per 1, 00,000 births because of subsequent intrauterine deaths (1). We report a primigravida who presented at 26 weeks with ultrasonographic feature of LBWC. After termination of pregnancy; evaluation confirmed the anomaly of the lower embryonic parts consistent with the diagnosis of LBWC.
