ABSTRACT: Intestinal obstruction in neonates is one of the commonest neonatal surgical emergency in pediatric surgery. Most of the literature on neonatal intestinal obstruction is from western countries. Very few contributions are available from India. A 10 year review was carried out from 1984 to 1994 at our centre to find out the various causes of neonatal intestinal obstruction in eastern U.P., Bihar and part of M.P. It constituted 38.6 percent, of intestinal obstruction in children. The commonest cause was ano-rectal malformation (50.3 percent) followed by Hirschsprung's disease, (15.7 percent 1), Bowelatresia (7.8 percent) and Maloration of gut (5.9 percent) in order of decreasing frequency (Table 1). Its presentation and outcome of management are being discussed.
