Volvulus of the midgut associated with intestinal malrotation classically presents in early life with complete, or intermittent, high intestinal obstruction. We describe the case of a boy presenting at 16 months of age with a history of malabsorption and failure to thrive. The importance of considering this rare diagnosis in such cases is discussed.
