Obstetrics and Gynaecology
We report a case of gastroschisis which was not diagnosed antenatally and was delivered through lower segment caesarean section due to non-reassuring cardiotocograph and small for gestational age fetus in a 21-year old mother. It was associated with oligohydramnios and partial extension of wrist joint in the neonate. After delivery, baby was referred to tertiary care for specialized care by paediatric surgeon and neonatologist where he had silo reduction and surgical repair. Postnatally, the baby is in healthy condition till now.
