PRUNE BELLY SYNDROME: CASE REPORT OF A FAILED MANAGEMENT IN A LOW-INCOME COUNTRY

0

Prune Belly Syndrome (PBS) is a rare congenital syndrome characterized by three main features: abdominal wall flaccidity, bilateral intra-abdominal cryptorchidism, and urologic abnormalities.
In this study we describe the case of a 2,600 gr baby, born at the Central Hospital of Beira, Mozambique.
Our study confirms that in a low-income country only conservative management can be delivered, and therefore prognosis is worse and less effective than high-income countries.
