The omphalocele is a rare malformation. Its frequency is estimated to be 1/5000 births. This malformation results from a closing defect of the abdominal wall and it’s frequently associated with other chromosomic abnormalities. We reported three new cases of omphaloceles occurred to 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 termination 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 menagement modalities of this congenital malformation.
