ABSTRACT: A 14-day old male baby presented with abdominal distension, constipation since birth and abnormal pigmentation. The perineum was normal. Plain X-ray abdomen in erect posture showed small bowel obstruction, Barium Enema did not show any transition zone, At laparotomy there was a transition zone in the ileum approximately 20 cm from the ileo-cecal junction and dilatation of the proximal intestine. Multiple seromuscular biopsies from the ileum, colon, rectum and appendix were taken; all were negativefor ganglion cells. Loop ileostomy was performed in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen.
