Ductal agenesis with right atrial connection

Istanbul Bakirkoy Women and Children Training Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Case report

This is a case of agenesis of ductus venosus with suprahepatic connection. The umbilical vein drains directly to the right atrium. There are maybe some associated cardiac anomalies with this finding. You can see an overriding aorta on our images. Unfortunately, there was no pathology examination of the fetus to confirm our ultrasound findings.
