Failure of obliteration of vitellointestinal duct (VID) can present with a wide variety of congenital intestinal malformations. Patient can present with the anomaly itself or due to complications secondary to the anomaly like intestinal obstruction due to volvulus, intussusception or adhesions. Prolapsed ilial loops through a patent VID is a rare presentation of the above. To date only fourteen cases of this presentation have been reported in the English medical literature. We are reporting a case of the same in a new-born presenting with it from the time of birth, which to the best of our knowledge has not been reported before and therefore this the youngest reported case of its nature in the current English medical literature.
