Primary Segmental Volvulus Mimicking Ileal Atresia
Keywords:Primary segmental volvulus, Neonate, Ileal atresia
Neonatal intestinal volvulus in the absence of malrotation is a rare occurrence and rarer still is intestinal volvulus in absence of any other predisposing factors. Primary segmental volvulus in neonates is very rare entity which can have catastrophic outcome if not intervened at appropriate time. We report two such cases which were preoperatively diagnosed as ileal atresia and intraoperatively revealed to be primary segmental volvulus of the ileum.
