Failure to pass meconium during the first twenty-hours of life is a cardinal sign of a congenital low alimentary tract obstruction. This review article discusses a systematic approach when confronting such problem to help clinicians arrive to a correct diagnosis. Prenatal and postnatal diagnosis, imaging investigation, differential diagnosis and management of the more common causes of failure to pass meconium are reviewed.
