Case report

This is a case of a 35-year-old, G2 P1, who was scanned at our department at 30 weeks of gestation. We revealed a persistent right umbilical vein which passed to the right of the ga
llbladder and curved towards the stomach. It was the most common, intrahepatic form of a persistent right umbilical vein. Below are some images of this isolated finding:
