Karan Raheja, Rajeev Aggarwal, Ashish Prakash, Arun Kumar, Himanshu Sharma, Preeti Gupta

Patent vitellointestinal duct (VID) can present to us in many variety of congenital intestinal malformations. Patient presents with either anomaly alone or complications secondary to the anomaly. Most common reported anomaly of residual vitelline duct is Meckel’s diverticulum with different presentations like bleeding, intestinal obstruction or diverticulitis. Prolapsed ileal loops through a patent VID is a rare presentation of the above. To date only fifteen cases of this presentation have been reported in the English medical literature but none reported in a premature newborn baby presenting with it from the time of birth, which to the best of our knowledge has not been reported before and therefore this the youngest reported case of its nature in the current English medical literature.
