A low-birth-weight (LBW; 1,940 g) girl was born at the gestational age of 36 weeks without any perinatal insult. Transposition of the great arteries (TGA) with a large patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) and interatrial shunt was detected. Stage IIIB necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) developed 46 hours after birth. She received ileostomy and drainage. Arterial switch operation was successfully performed at 23 days of age when her weight was 1,900 g. The enterostomy was successfully repaired at 104 days of age.
