Abstract

Calcified intraluminal meconium is a rare finding in newborn infants. It is often associated with communication between the urinary and gastrointestinal tracts. Intra-abdominal calcifications are unusual radiographic findings in the newborn and can easily be misinterpreted as meconium peritonitis. We report on a newborn infant with anorectal malformation, meconium balls, intraluminal calcifications, colpocephaly, and agenesis of the corpus callosum, a rare association.
