Definition:Separation of the umbilical cord occurs at an abnormally late timepoint.
Comment:The umbilical cord of the newborn usually separates and sloughs by the end of the second postnatal week. However, a wide variation exists in the age at which cord separation occurs in healthy infants with regard to ethnicity, geographical location, and methods of cord care. A marked delay in cord separation raises the suspicion of leukocyte adhesion deficiency, a rare disorder leading to defective neutrophil function.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: Delayed separation of umbilical cord
