Duodenal web is an uncommon lesion that infrequently cause partial or complete intestinal obstruction. If the duonenal web is incomplete and only partially obstructs the duodenal lumen, the onset of symptoms may be delayed for years, and obstructive symptoms will be only minimal and intermittent. Congenital duodenal obstruction is occasionally associated with intestinal malrotation. We experienced a case of duodenal web associated with intestinal malrotation in a 9-year-old girl who had been suffered from intermittent projectile vomiting since birth without failure to thrive. The diagnosis was made by UGI series & abdominal CT. Patient remained asymptomatic after operation.
