Abstract: Pentalogy of Cantrell is a rare congenital malformation syndrome involving specific combination of ventral midline defects with ectopia cordis', as the most severe malformation. The complete form consists of five anatomical defects. We report a case of a one hour old female neonate delivered to a 27 year old primipara who presented with the complete form of the syndrome. She had surgery on the 4th day of life, however died 36 hours after surgery. We report this rare congenital anomally and a review of relevant literature.
