ABSTRACT
This report describes the presentation of prolapse of small bowel through the patent omphalomesenteric or vitello intestinal duct in a child. In spite of diagnosing the anomaly earlier, there was delay in surgical intervention that led to prolapse of the small bowel through patent remnants, which was life threatening. The patient presented to us with questionable viability of prolapsed bowel. Early surgery is recommended for this entity. As this is a very rare occurrence, it is being reported with a brief review of the relevant literature.
