Intestinal Obstruction of Congenital Origin: A Case Report
Congenital bands are rare causes of intestinal obstruction and often leads to diagnostic challenges.
Diagnostic delays in cases of mechanical obstruction might lead to irreversible bowel ischemia
and perforation. Presently described is a case of an 18 month young child with severe vomiting
developed for one day. The child was initially thought to have acute viral enteritis and treated
accordingly. Due to the severity, an X-Ray and computed tomography scan were sent which pointed
towards the possibility of having congenital bands. He was treated operatively. The child was kept
under observation for eleven days and was discharged. Although rare, intestinal obstruction due to
congenital bands must be considered when treating a child with severe vomiting.
