Congenital pouch colon (CPC) is classified on the basis of anatomic morphology into five types. Congenital segmental intestinal dilatation associated with anorectal malformation (ARM) is very rare. We are adding two neonates of CPC type 2 associated with segmental dilatation of the ileum to single similar case described in the literature till date. Temporary stomas with excision of either of the pouches should be considered. “Defective mesenchyme formation during organogenesis” due to abnormal mesenchymal precursor cells is hypothesized as the cause for both ARM and different types of CPC.
