Abstract

MURCS association is a rare, lethal and unusual constellation of nonrandom findings that includes mullerian duct aplasia, renal aplasia, and cervocothoracic somite dysplasia. Antenatal ultrasonographic findings show a massive, cystic umbilical cord related to a patent urachus, enlarged bladder, single small kidney, and suspicion of urethral obstruction in a fetus of female phenotype. The findings point to urethral atresia and patent urachus as the cause of the massively dilated umbilical cord.
