Prospective management of exstrophy of the cloaca and myelocystocele following prenatal ultrasound recognition of neural tube defects in identical twins

Prospective management of exstrophy of the cloaca and myelocystocele following prenatal ultrasound recognition of neural tube defects in identical twins

Identical twins concordant for exstrophy of the cloaca and myelocystocele are described. Their management and subsequent course was strongly influenced by prenatal ultrasound recognition of neural tube defects in both twins and severe renal dysplasia in one of the fetuses. The genetic aspects of this case are consistent with existing causal theories of exstrophy of the cloaca.
