Abdominal defects are grouped here into four categories. The first two, exomphalos (omphalocele) and gastroschisis, are anterior abdominal wall defects. Although similar in appearance, they have differing aetiologies. The third category is diaphragmatic hernia and the final category contains other miscellaneous abdominal anomalies such as prune belly syndrome and atresias of the bowel.
