The association of apple peel bowel with multiple intestinal atresias is a rare event. The authors report a case of a 2.200-g newborn affected by this uncommon condition. The interruptions of small bowel continuity were treated successfully with 5 end-to-end anastomoses and with the construction of 2 ostomies. A gastroduodenal silicone tube (Vygon S.A., Ecouen, France) was used as an intraluminal stent.
