Single umbilical artery (SUA) is a condition where one umbilical artery exists. Normally, the umbilical artery contains two umbilical artery and one umbilical vein. The incidence of SUA varies from 0.2% to 0.8%. We present a case of SUA in a term baby with birth weight of 1.7kg delivered by a 28-year-old mother. SUA is a condition which must be kept in mind during histopathological examination since it helps in improving the neonatal and maternal care.
