A review of fetal gastrointestinal anomalies is presented. Normal abdominal development and anatomy, including basic embryology and recommended ultrasound techniques, are first outlined. Next is a more detailed discussion of the abnormal examination, including abdominal wall defects and intra- abdominal abnormalities. The goal of this work is to present a practical approach to the abnormal fetal abdominal examination enabling the sonographer and sonologist to suggest precise differential diagnoses.
