Ectopic pancreas is not an uncommon congenital anomaly manifesting the heterotopic pancreas tissue separated from the normal pancreas. The main ectopic site is the proximal gastrointestinal tract. The majority of ectopic pancreas is asymptomatic, whereas some subjects cause diseases such as bleeding and luminal obstruction. The distal bowel obstruction caused by ectopic pancreas is rarely reported. Herein, we reported a newborn presented with distal bowel obstruction complicating bowel gangrene 31 h after delivery. Surgical resection cured this disease.
