Figure 3.24. Eagle-Barrett syndrome (prune belly syndrome) is also described as the triad syndrome: absence of abdominal musculature, genitourinary tract abnormalities, and cryptorchidism. In this fetus there is a markedly distended abdomen due to a very distended bladder. It is now thought that the genitalia and urinary tract abnormalities are the precursor of the absence of abdominal musculature.

Note the marked laxity of the abdominal wall giving it the appearance of a "prune," and the large mass on the left side of the abdomen due to massive dilatation of the ureter and hydronephrosis. Also note the cryptorchidism.
