Pentalogy of Cantrell (POC) is a very rare congenital anomaly and treatment has remained a challenge worldwide owing to extensive reconstructive surgeries, more so in resource-constrained settings. We, therefore, report two cases of complete POC. Both successfully underwent planned reconstructions by a multidisciplinary team. The techniques and challenges are hereby highlighted.
