Abstract

Agenesis of the dorsal mesentery in association with jejunal atresia is a well-recognized congenital anomaly. Only few reports exist in the English literature of children with agenesis of the dorsal mesentery without small bowel atresia. Herein, we report a child with total mesenteric agenesis presenting with midgut volvulus owing to internal herniation of the small bowel through a mesenteric defect, with normal fixation and rotation of the bowel.
