The malrotated baby – a diagnostic dilemma

By Katharine Jamieson, Kokila Lakhoo and Kaye Platt

Abstract

We present a case in which misinterpretation of radiological images resulted in an incorrect diagnosis of malrotation. This case highlights the importance of adequate radiological review of images and of ensuring that the clinical picture matches the findings. Had this not been questioned in this case the baby could have undergone an unnecessary operation with potential mortality and morbidity
