ABSTRACT
OEIS complex is a spectrum of malformations that result from improper closure of ventral abdominal wall due to failure of convergence of cephalo-caudal and lateral folding’s of embryo during 4th week of development with associated defects in development of cloaca and urorectal septum. A third gravida with previous normal obstetric history spontaneously delivered a dead female fetus with multiple congenital anomalies at 32 weeks gestation. The anomalies presented can be grouped under OEIS complex (Omphalocele, Exstrophy of cloaca, Imperforate anus and Spinal anomalies). Diagnosis at birth is made based on the presenting features, but it can be diagnosed prenatally based on the repeated non-visualization of filled bladder, omphalocele, meningocele, club foot etc. it requires long-term multi-disciplinary surgical reconstruction and management to facilitate quality of life.
