In 1958, Cantrell described a syndromic complex characterized by five defects, these included: ectopia cordis, omphalocele, disruption of the distal sternum, anterior diaphragm, and diaphragmatic pericardium. We present a case of Pentalogy of Cantrell with a late sonographic diagnosis with echocardiography after birth and post-mortem examination. We do a short review of literature.
