'Always look for duodenal obstruction in a case of malrotation', this dictum has to be followed. The duodenum is the most common site for congenital intestinal obstruction. The duodenal web with a central hole can present without any overt signs of obstruction at a later age. Here, we report a case of duodenal obstruction presented with complain of vomiting. The patient was operated previously for malrotation of the gut at the age of 1.5 years. At surgery we found a duodenal web with central perforation. Web was excised, and the patient was discharged uneventfully.
