Long-term survival of a baby with body stalk anomaly: report of a case

, : Long-term survival of a baby with body stalk anomaly: report of a case. Surgery Today 37(1): 30-33

Body stalk anomaly is characterized by severe scoliosis, severe pulmonary hypoplasia, and giant omphalocele. The prognosis of the disease is poor and most obstetricians consider it fatal. Very few patients with body stalk anomaly survive. We report the case of a baby diagnosed with body stalk anomaly in fetal life, who was saved by intensive care after birth. We closed the giant omphalocele successfully by placing karaya gum sheets over it, which created a humidified environment and promoted natural skin epithelization over the skin defect.
