Pentalogy of Cantrell (Thoraco abdominal ectopia cordis) is a rare congenital malformation syndrome consisting of a specific combination of ventral midline defects involving supraumbilical anterior abdominal wall, anterior diaphragm, diaphragmatic pericardium and sternum which can leads to various congenital anomalies like omphalocele and Ectopia cordis. Less than 90 cases have been reported in the literature. Here we report a case of incomplete Pentalogy of Cantrell with two rarer expressions of this disorder, Dandy walker malformation and 2 vessel cord which was not described in literature till now. Rarity of this entity is reason for presentation of this case report.
