Incidence is 10 to 28 % at birth & reduces to 2 to 8 % at 1 year.

Conservative management is dictum & only larger defects or special situations will warrant early closure as determined by surgeon. 


In childhood, Only suture closure is choice & mesh or net is best avoided

Most of the repair are attempted at age of 4 to 6 years
