Case description

Fourteen year old boy presented with recurrent umbilical discharge. His routine investigations did not reveal anything specific except leukocytosis. His ultrasound examination showed a diffuse swelling in the infra umbilical region. He was posted for exploration of wound and diagnostic laparoscopy with treatment if a cause was found. It was a persistent urachus with recurrent infection. Excision was done along with a core of bladder tissue, and bladder was sutured.
