Section: Case Report
We present a case of megacystis-microcolon-intestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome (MMIHS) in a four days old female infant who presented with abdominal distension, bilious vomiting, massive hematuria and feeding intolerance which was first interpreted as Prune Belly Syndrome (PBS), referred to our department after iatrogenic gastric and colonic perforation. Berdon syndrome or MMIHS is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by a massive enlarged bladder, distended abdomen, microcolon, functional obstruction of the gastrointestinal tract, and malrotation.
