Ectopia cordis with endocardial cushion defect: Prenatal ultrasonographic diagnosis with autopsy correlation.

Author information

Department of Ultrasonography, PVS Hospital, Kerala, India.


The prenatal ultrasonographic diagnosis of ectopia cordis associated with a complex intra-cardiac defect (common atrium, common atrioventricular valve with single ventricle) is illustrated in a 32-week gestation fetus. The fetus showed associated features of amniotic band disruption sequence. The cardiac autopsy findings correlated with the antenatal diagnosis. The association of ectopia cordis with amniotic band disruption is rare and infrequently reported in literature.
