Cloacal dysgenesis sequence (CDS) is a lethal malformation with a highly variable presentation. CDS is characterized by direct communication between the gastrointestinal, urinary, and genital structures, resulting in a single perineal opening. Prenatal diagnosis of a cloacal anomaly is often difficult because of the highly variable imaging features. Here, we report a case in which a diagnosis of CDS was made with fetal MRI on the basis of a meconium-containing, bilobed, abdominopelvic cystic mass communicating with the ureters and the colon.
