We report the prenatal diagnosis of 6 cases of Prune-belly syndrome in the 2nd trimester. The sonographic diagnosis was based on the findings of oligohydramnios, renal anomalies, and a lower abdominal cystic mass representing the abnormal dilatation of the bladder on conventional 2-dimensional sonographic examination. We discuss the role of Doppler imaging and 3-dimensional sonography as complementary methods to conventional sonography. Four of our 6 cases were confirmed with associated defects.
