Abstract
Cloacal anomaly is an extremely rare congenital malformation results from a failure in the development of the urorectal fold that separates the rectum from uterovaginal tract. It is characterized by the presence of a single duct where the gastrointestinal, genital and urinary tracts join. It presents with highly variable forms, which make it difficult to be diagnosed antenatally. We report a case of cloacal anomaly confirmed with autopsy, which was initially detected by the presence of a huge cystic fetal abdominal mass by ultrasound at a 22 weeks of gestation.
Key Words: Cloacal anomaly
