Clinical Information
  • A rare congenital syndrome occurring almost exclusively in males. It is characterized by partial or complete lack of the abdominal wall muscles, enlarged bladder, dilated ureters, hydronephrosis, and undescended testes.
  • A syndrome characterized by abdominal wall musculature deficiency, cryptorchism, and urinary tract abnormalities. The syndrome derives its name from its characteristic distended abdomen with wrinkled skin.
  • A syndrome of hypoplasia or aplasia of the abdominal muscle, presenting a thin, loose, wrinkled and shriveled (prunelike) abdominal wall, with furrowlike umbilicus, and other anomalies, including persistent urachus, pigeon breast deformity, and a variety of gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, urogenital, and skeletal abnormalities. Prune belly syndrome may occur with or without pulmonic stenosis, deafness, and mental retardation. Distention of the bladder and urethra in utero is considered as a possible cause of abdominal overdistention.
