Abstract
Intrauterine midgut volvulus is an extremely rare and potentially life-threatening disease, requiring prompt surgical intervention after birth. Non-specific prenatal signs of fetal midgut volvulus cause late diagnosis and treatment, resulting very poor outcome. We report a case of preterm newborn with intrauterine midgut volvulus due to malrotation, who survived after immediate postnatal surgical intervention.
Key Words: Midgut volvulus, Intrauterine, Malrotation, Neonate
