Abstract

Incomplete regression of the foetal urachus results in formation of urachal abnormalities. They are more common in children than in adults, due to urachal obliteration in early infancy.

In adults, even though urachal cyst (UC) remains the commonest variety among them, diagnosis remains challenging due to the rarity of this lesion and the non-specific nature of its symptomatology. Since the first description of urachal abnormality by 1550, few cases have been reported in literature.

We here describe a case of urachal cyst presenting with umbilical discharge, in a previously healthy person.

Keywords:
Urachal Cyst, omphalitis, pilonidal disease of umblicus
