Abstract
Intestinal obstruction is not uncommon in infants. The common causes of intestinal obstruction in the neonatal period are Hirschsprung disease, intestinal atresia, meconium ileus, and intussusception. However, small bowel obstruction caused by a congenital band is very rare. We report a 27-day-old baby who was admitted with abdominal distension and fever. The abdominal X-ray revealed massive bowel dilatation and the contrast gastrografin enema suggested a distal small bowel obstruction. The explolaparotomy showed small bowel entrapment due to an unusual anomalous congenital band.
Key Words: Intestinal obstruction, Congenital band, Infant
