Umbilical cord hematoma (UCH) is the extravasation of blood in the umbilical cord. The condition is rare and asymptomatic but very important to recognize because it can potentially compromise fetal blood flow. Hence, UCH increases the chances of fetal mortality and morbidity. We are presenting the case report of a large but asymptomatic UCH in a newborn baby with Down syndrome. To the best of our knowledge, the association between Down syndrome and UCH has not been reported in medical literature till the time of writing of this manuscript.
