ABSTRACT: Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) classically occurs in stressed low birth weight infants and carries a high mortality rate. Although it has been sporadically described in other setting, it has not been frequently cited as a postoperative complication. This paper presents a case of annular pancreas whose postoperative course was complicated by the development of NEC. There were no reliable diagnostic signs like pneumatosis intestinalis, portal vein gas or pneumoperitoneum. Awareness of NEC as a potential postoperative complication may help in early recognition and management.
