S Vlădăreanu, A Tecuci, SA Constantinescu, A Luca, A Trăistaru, IM Vlădăreanu


Rezumat: Single umbilical artery is the most frequent anomaly of the umbilical cord. Most of the times, the anomaly is isolated, but it can be associated with gastrointestinal anomalies (atresia or stenosis of different gastric segments), cardiac anomalies (the risk is 7 to 8 times greater than in the general population), genitourinary abnormalities and aneuploidies (trisomy 13, 18, 21). In this article, we present a resume of the knowledge regarding umbilical artery and its abnormalities, starting from a case of a female newborn who was diagnosed with single umbilical artery, right kidney agenesis and intrauterine growth restriction. The newborn associated congenital hypothyroidy which was diagnosed neonatally by metabolic screening, without any specific clinical outcome.
Cuvinte cheie: single umbilical artery, kidney agenesis, congenital hypothyroidy.
