CARRO, Gabriela; URROZ, Juan  and  JUAMBELTZ, Carlos. Patent onfalomesenteric conduct. Anfamed [online]. 2018, vol.5, n.2, pp.102-107. ISSN 2301-1254.

The persistence of permeable omphalosenteric duct is one of the less frequent forms of presentation, within the pathology, of the embryonic remnants derived from this duct. We present the case of a 30-day-old infant who is diagnosed with permeable omphalomesenteric duct, and resective surgery is performed, with a good postoperative evolution and with home discharge at 8 days. The embryology data as well as the pathology, the clinical presentation, the differential diagnoses and the therapeutic options are reviewed.

Keywords : omphalomesenteric duct; vitelline duct.
