Umbilical polyp in Child
An umbilical polyp requires prompt investigation to rule out deeper anomalies of the OMD, such as cysts, a patent vitellointestinal duct, or an enteroumbilical fistula. Serious complications such as infection, peritonitis, hemorrhage, small bowel evisceration, prolapse, obstruction, perforation, intussusception, volvulus, or hernia may occur when these exist.
Malignant degeneration of umbilical polyps has rarely been reported.
