Abstract

Umbilical polyp is a rare disorder of the umbilical region in childhood. It is said to be the result of incomplete closure of the omphalomesenteric duct and presents as a red, moist umbilical mass after separation of the umbilical cord. Umbilical polyp originating from the urachus has not previously been reported. A 10-year-old boy with an umbilical polyp related to the urachus is presented to stress the possibility that umbilical polyp, can originate not only from the omphalomesenteric duct but also from urachal remnants.
