Abstract

Umbilical discharge in infancy is often attributed to infection or an umbilical granuloma. It is important to investigate if such a discharge is due to an underlying congenital abnormality because corrective surgical intervention may then be required. Umbilical discharge due to underlying cysts and nodules in the early childhood have varied etiology. We present a case of histologically proven omphalomesenteric duct cyst lined by gastric mucosa with late and unique presentation that needed surgical intervention and was treated successfully.

Key words: Umbilical cyst, omphalomesenteric duct cyst.
