Malrotation of the mid gut is the most common congenital anomaly which might be present in infants, children or adults at various point of time in the form of acute intestinal obstruction or intestinal ischaemia with caecal or midgut volvulus or with chronic abdominal pain. Annular pancreas is a rare congenital anomaly which is consists of a rim of pancreatic tissue which encircles the second part of duodenum either partially or completely. Annular pancreas may be asymptomatic for a very long period of time before presenting with vomiting or features of intestinal obstruction. Here, we are presenting two female neonatal patient presented to us with bilious vomiting, weight loss, and irritability, abdominal distention who was diagnosed as mid gut volvulus which eventually turned out to be malrotation of mid gut and with incidental finding of annular pancreas.
