Management of an infected urachal cyst during pregnancy

, : Management of an infected urachal cyst during pregnancy. Asia-Oceania Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology 20(4): 355-359

An infected urachal cyst complicating a pregnancy is extremely rare, but is considered to present a high risk to both the mother and the fetus. We treated a patient with an infected urachal cyst diagnosed at 29 weeks of gestation. A healthy infant was delivered by cesarean section at 37 weeks of gestation. The patient underwent excision of the unruptured cyst 37 days later. This is the first reported case of an infected urachal cyst complicating a pregnancy, that was diagnosed before rupture and was managed without serious sequelae for either the mother or the fetus. The diagnosis and management of the infected urachal cyst complicating the pregnancy is discussed.
