    What’s your diagnosis for this newborn?

    In most cases this is just a harmless variation on a normal umbilical cord, but it could be a sign of something pathological.

    I’ll post the correct answer in a couple of days!

    I'll help you: in most cases this is just a harmless variation on a normal umbilical cord, but it could be a sign of something pathological.

    Correct answer:

    I couldn't find the English term for this condition, but in Dutch it's literally called 'abundant umbilical skin'. Most commonly it's a harmless variation of a normal umbilical cord, but it could also be a sign of a mild umbilical herniation.
