Wrong Place, Wrong Time

The first image shows omphalocele, a defect in the anterior abdominal wall through which intraabdominal contents extrude into the base of the umbilical cord. An aminoperitoneal membrane covers the organs (usually small bowel, occasionally large bowel and liver). The second image shows gastroschisis, a full-thickness paraumbilical abdominal wall defect associated with evisceration of fetal intestine.
