Prune Belly syndrome: Case Report

  • M.K. Koigi
  • K. Kamau


Despite typical gross features of Prune Belly syndrome, this case posed immediate diagnostic challenge at birth, depicting paucity of comprehensive knowledge on congenital malformations. Prenatal ultrasound had not been done. Neonatal death was due to the malformations and birth asphyxia. Inadequacies in management of congenital malformations and providing support systems to the parents also emerged. A need for screening and training on prenatal anomalies becomes obvious. In addition, psycho-social and medical support systems should be put in place for the parents in order to enhance preparedness in care.
