Hemangioma of the umbilical cord.
Tumors of the umbilical cord are extremely rare. Only two types are recognized: hemangioma and teratoma. A case of hemangioma of the cord prompted a review of the world literature that uncovered 17 other cases, bringing the total number of known cases up to 18. Our case is the first to be diagnosed by ultrasonography and was associated with polyhydramnios.
