A mother notes in her 1-month-old baby girl clear fluid in the umbilicus. She brings this to the attention of her pediatrician, who not only verifies the presence of the fluid but also palpates a midline mass. At surgery a cystic mass is noted that connects to the urinary bladder. What is the most likely diagnosis?

im confused...........urachal cyst can be the answer........but it is an isolated cyst with no conection b/w bladder and umbilicus...........regarding urachal fistula.........it can present with urine draining from umbilicus but i dont know if it presents as a cystic mass palpated in midline

so is it urachal fistula????

The correct anwser is right-side heart failure wich is basycally the graph with expanded ECF AND ICF but decresed Posmol/Na...
