Intestinal obstruction in the newborn is a potentially life-threatening complication. The most common causes are meconium plug, meconium ileus, intestinal atresia, intestinal malrotation, and Hirschprung's disease. We present an unusual case of intestinal obstruction caused by torsion of an ovarian cyst. The left fimbria and ovary swirled around the sigmoid colon, causing colonic stricture.
