Omphalocele represent the commonest abdominal wall defects. Giant omphalocele is one of its subtypes, containing liver in its entirety. Due to various syndromic and non-syndromic associations and gross viscero-abdominal disproportion, post-operative outcome poses a challenge. There have been a lot of disparities among surgeons deciding the operative technique. We pluck the courage to report a yet another method of successful single layer primary closure of a giant omphalocele in our institute, well equipped with intensive care facilities.
