Congenital intestinal fistula with exomphalos minor.


:Minor degrees of exomphalos have been known to be associated with vitellointestinal duct anomalies. The most frequent association is Meckel's diverticulum. It is unusual for a fistula to be communicating directly with the exomphalos sac. We report five neonates that presented with a fistula on the exomphalos sac over a 10-year period. The different variants of patent vitellointestinal duct in these cases have been discussed with a review of the literature.
