PMID:  20532527     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a newborn who presented with acute abdominal distension secondary to gastric ischaemia with an associated undiagnosed coarctation of the descending aorta. This is the first description of such a previously unrecognised association, which is discussed further with reference to the current literature.
