Abstract

The case is reported of a baby boy with an interstitial deletion of the long arm of chromosome 13 who, in addition to the described associations of Hirschsprung's disease and intestinal atresia, had umbilical cord ulceration resulting in massive intrapartum haemorrhage. This case provides support for the existence of a previously reported association between umbilical cord ulceration and intestinal atresia, and suggests that it is aetiologically heterogeneous.
