A 12-hour-old male infant presented with prolapsed abdominal content through a defect on left side of chest wall with respiratory distress.

The child expired after 6 hours of admission because of respiratory distress and electrolyte imbalance. Is congenital defect of chest wall associated with diaphragmatic hernia without ectopia cordis and omphalocele, an unusual variant of Cantrell's pentalogy?
