Congenital chloride diarrhoea (CCD) usually presents with abdominal distension, visible peristalsis and watery stools from birth that show chloride loss of more than 90 mmol/l. It may mimic low intestinal obstruction on antenatal ultrasound scanning after 30 weeks' gestation. This condition has been reported mainly from Finland. We report a case of CCD in a Saudi boy which was suspected antenatally, confirmed post-natally and managed successfully.
