Ramjeewan Singh [3] | Bijay Suman | Amit Sinha [3]

Abstract: Wilkie's syndrome is a rare vascular cause of small bowel obstruction. It is more common in female and the etiology is multifactorial. It may be congenital or acquired. It occurs due to loss of perivascular fat between abdominal aorta and the superior mesenteric artery. This leads to decrease in aorto?mesenteric angle and cause compression of duodenum. The diagnosis can be made by upper gastrointestinal contrast study; Doppler ultrasonography and contrast enhance computed tomography. Management options are conservative or surgical. We are going to present a case of Wilkie?s syndrome in an 11 years male child which was managed conservatively.
