ABSTRACT: Intestinal obstruction in infants carries high mortality and morbidity. One of the reasons of which may be due o immature immune structure and response. To evaluate the immune profile and C3 level in intestinal obstruction, 150 infants upto 1 year of age had been studied along with 60 age matched control cases. Serum IgG, IgA, IgM. C3 and Secretary IgA from gastric aspirate were estimated. The values were observed and its significance in different groups were discussed. The serum IgG level was significantly lower, while serum IgM, IgA and secretary IgA were significantly higher in diseased group suggesting on increased early immune response and increased local gut immunity in these patients.
