Abstract
Varix of the intraabdominal portion of the fetal umbilical vein is a rare entity. We present a case of varix of the intrafetal umbilical vein diagnosed by routine prenatal ultrasonography at 35 weeks of gestation. Color Doppler examination of the abnormal umbilical vein demonstrated turbulent flow through 23-mm diameter cystic dilatation of the fetal intra-abdominal umbilical vein consistent with a varix. No other sonographic abnormalities were detected, and a healthy infant was delivered at term.
Key Words: Umbilical vein varix, Prenatal ultrasonography, Color Doppler
