The omphalocele is a rare malformation. Its frequency is estimated 1/5000 of births. This malformation results from a closing defect of the abdominal wall and it’s frequently associated with other chromosomic abnormalities. We report three new cases of omphaloceles accrued to a 27-, 43- and 39-years old patients. The diagnosis by the ultrasound exam was easy and precocious. A fetal karyotype was performed to all the patients and was constantly abnormal. Therefore, the medical interruption of the pregnancy was practiced to the three patients. On the occasion of those three observations and a literature review, we remind the diagnostic aspects and the management modalities of this congenital malformation.
