Gastroschisis (GQS) and omphalocele are congenital defects of the abdominal wall; The GQS is a defect usually on the right side of the umbilical cord, where there is exposure of the intestinal loops and there is no membrane that covers them; The omphalocele is a defect through the umbilical cord, in which there is a herniation of the intra-abdominal organs, which are covered by a membrane. GQS is generally associated with minor abnormalities of the digestive tract and generally does not have an association with severe congenital abnormalities. The diagnosis can be made prenatally by Ultrasound (USG). The objective is to present a clinical case of gastroschisis associated with severe midline congenital anomalies, such as ectopia cordis, which is not frequent in these patients [1-4].
