Cystic, edematous, and myxoid lesions of the umbilical cord are rare conditions which have been sporadically reported in literature, most often detected at prenatal ultrasonography. Most reports of cystic cord conditions are ultrasonographic studies with a few featuring pathological descriptions. This is a report of a rare case of umbilical pseudocystic lesion with full pathological description. The possibility of this extremely myxoid lesion confounding the diagnosis of tumors such as angiomyxoma is highlighted.
