Amniocenteses in an Rh-sensitized woman revealed the need for intrauterine transfusion to improve fetal status. Following delivery of the infant by cesarean section 7 weeks later, herniation of a segment of omentum through the anterior abdominal wall was noted. The injury was due to needle puncture during the intrauterine transfusion. The injury was repaired, and the infant recovered.
