Gastroschisis is a rare congenital abdominal wall defect that requires prompt surgical correction. It almost exclusively occurs in infants of mothers younger than 25 years of age. The overall incidence of gastroschisis is 1 in 10,000 live births. It is characterized by normal umbilical cord insertion with defect being extra-abdominal through which abdominal contents protrude. There is no covering sac and the size of the defect is less than 4 cm. Here, we report a case of gastroschisis occurring in a 22-year-old female.
