Acute intestinal obstruction as a presentation of cystic fibrosis in infancy

Intestinal obstruction and dysmotility occur throughout life in cystic fibrosis but rarely present as an acute obstruction beyond the neonatal period. We describe the previously unreported occurrence of acute obstruction of the sigmoid colon as a presenting feature of cystic fibrosis (CF) in a 6-month infant.

Abstract

Intestinal obstruction and dysmotility occur throughout life in cystic fibrosis but rarely present as an acute obstruction beyond the neonatal period. We describe the previously unreported occurrence of acute obstruction of the sigmoid colon as a presenting feature of cystic fibrosis (CF) in a 6-month infant.
