Abstract

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.
