Abstract
During embryonic development, the urachus connects the dome of the bladder to the umbilicus. After birth, the urachus becomes median umbilical ligament. Incomplete closure of the urachus results in the formation of a cyst or cysts. We experienced a case of fetal urachal cyst, and report that with brief review of related literatures.
Key Words: Urachal cyst, Fetus, Ultrasonography
