We report the case of a woman who, after her second pregnancy 9 years ago, had had malodorous leakage from the umbilicus and abdominal pain despite various treatments. Bacterial culture revealed growth of hemolytic streptococcus C. The cotton-tipped swab could be introduced 6 cm in the narrow tender opening. There were no signs of fistula or other abnormalities.
