This report describes the case of an ileal perforation secondary to clamping of the exomphalos minor in 3-day-old girl. Eighteen accidental clamping or cutting cases were found in the published work. It is thought that this defect resulted from either the clamping, ligation or cutting of the bowel in a small unrecognized omphalocele. These complications are extremely rare, but should be held in mind when performing an umbilical ligation.
