Patent vitellointestinal duct (PVID) is a benign congenital anomaly usually presenting with fecal discharge from the umbilicus. In this report, we describe two cases of PVID presented with massive bowel prolapse through the PVID and signs of intestinal obstruction. Surgery revealed prolapse of the ileal intussusceptum through the PVID. Both babies were successfully managed with surgery.
