Abstract
Meconium peritonitis is the chemical inflammation or foreign body reaction of peritoneum resulted from the prenatal bowel perforation associated with or without obstructive lesion during late intrauterine or early neonatal periods. Prenatal ultrasonographic findings of meconium peritonitis are intraperitoneal calcification, ascites, and pseudocyst. These provides the preparation for proper management which should reduce mortality and morbidity of neonate. We have experienced a case of meconium peritonitis in utero diagnosed by prenatal ultrasonography and present this case with a brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Meconium peritonitis, Prenatal ultrasonography
