ABSTRACT: Double prolapse of bowel loops through the umbilicus is a rare complication of patent vitello intestinal duct and it has a typical clinical presentation. A similar presentation was seen in a baby who had developed this complication in a sigmoid colon fistula within a few days after birth. Possibly the fistula was iatrogenic, which occured due to umbilical cord ligature with inadvertant inclusion of an occult omphalocele containing the involved gut as its content.
