Prune-Belly syndrome (PBS) is a rare congenital anomaly. It consists of genital and urinary abnormalities with partial or complete absence of abdominal wall musculature. Intrauterine consequences of this syndrome are oligohydramnios, pulmonary hypoplasia, and Potter's facies. Occasionally, the syndrome can have a broad spectrum of affected anatomy with different levels of severity. Here, we are reporting a rare case of PBS with VACTERL association. Six cases have been reported till now in English literature.
