Umbilical cord ulceration and intestinal atresia

Umbilical cord ulceration and intestinal atresia is a rare[1] congenital disease that leads to intestinal atresia, umbilical cord ulceration and severe intrauterine haemorrhage. Only 15 cases have so far been report[2] though newer studies are beginning to conclude that this disease has a higher incidence rate than has been previously reported.[3] A particular study has given intestinal atresia and umbilical cord ulceration a clear link after 5 such cases were reported at the time of publication.[4]
