Hi, thanks for using health care magic

There is a condition called infected urachal cyst which can sometimes present with abdominal pain, fever and vomiting.
There is a connection between the bladder and umbilicus which is normally closed off after birth, in some persons it closes off incompletely and a cyst develops. This cyst can become infected.
It is normally treated by incision and drainage of the area.

Hope this helps,
