Abstract

Congenital short bowel is a rare anomaly. Among the 21 cases reviewed in the literature, only four (19%) survived beyond infancy. We present a female infant with short small bowel, malrotation and floating colon, who was successfully treated with home central parenteral nutrition. Improved long-term survival in this group of patients is expected with prolonged parenteral nutritional support.
