A prolapsed and everted bladder through a widely patent urachus with an absent omphalocele is considered as an extremely rare and unique case, which requires emergency treatment and surgical intervention. A newly born baby was born at term and then referred from a district hospital for a mass at the umbilical region. She was referred as a case of gastroschisis, but she was eventually found to have a rare patent urachus with bladder eversion and prolapse onto the abdominal wall. The prolapsed bladder was repaired without any complications, and an umbilicoplasty was performed successfully. The infant recovered uneventfully and without any difficulty in voiding. A significant reduction in bladder dome inflammation as well as in mucosal necrosis can be obtained by performing the repair procedure as soon as possible.
