Abstract
Meconium peritonitis is a rare disease in neonates, characterized by intraperitoneal calcification, numerous fibrosis with or without pseudocyst formation due to antenatal extravasation of meconium. Meconium peritonitis may result in a number of genital manifestations, including inguinal and scrotal or labial hydrocele containing meconium or calcifications. Recently, increased numbers of fetuses with meconium peritonitis have been prenatally diagnosed by ultrasonography. We report a case of meconium peritonitis in a neonate with ascites and hydrocele which was diagnosed by antenatal ultrasonography.
Key Words: Meconium peritonitis, Hydrocele
