An 1-year-old boy with degenerative leiomyopathy (DL) presented with a volvulus of the transverse colon. After derotating the volvulus, we constructed a tube colostomy (TC) from the transverse colon. This TC has been used for the past 2 years by the patient for regular deflation of the colon and antegrade colonic enemas (ACE). We present this as a preliminary report of the use of the Malone ACE procedure in a patient with DL and review the relevant literature.
