An omphalocele, which is also referred to as exomphalos, is a rare congenital defect of the abdominal wall. The defect manifests in infancy as a protrusion of the bowels, liver, and various abdominal organs through an opening in the muscles near the umbilical cord insertion. As a result, these babies tend to have a protruding umbilicus.
