Author information

Department of Ultrasound Medicine, Affiliated Bo Ai Hospital, Southern Medical University, 6 Cheng Gui Rd, East District, 528403 Zhong Shan, China.


An anomalous congenital band is a well-known cause of intestinal obstruction, but it is rare and usually presents a diagnostic challenge. With high-frequency sonography, it is possible for intestinal obstruction due to a vitelline band to be diagnosed preoperatively. We describe the sonographic findings of 2 cases that led us to make the correct diagnosis, which was confirmed by surgery.
