A Rare Case of Patent Vitellointestinal Duct Causing Bowel Obstruction in an Adult

Dr. Vishal Gautam [2] | Dr. Praveen Shandil | Dr. U K Chandel

Abstract: Patent Vitellointestinal duct VID is a rare congenital anomaly that usually presents in infants and neonates, with only a few cases reported in adults. We present the case of a 27-year-old female who presented with acute abdominal pain, vomiting, and a distended abdomen, ultimately diagnosed with small bowel obstruction caused by a patent VID. This unusual presentation highlights the importance of considering congenital anomalies as a potential cause of intestinal obstruction in adult patients. The discussion delves into the embryonic origins of VID and its various clinical manifestations. Surgeons should be aware of this infrequent etiology to ensure prompt diagnosis and appropriate management, leading to better patient outcomes.
