Abstract

A newborn Caucasian boy presented with meconium ileus and multiple congenital anomalies. Following operation, he continued to show signs of pancreatic hypofunction, although a diagnosis of mucoviscidosis could not be established. The pancreatic insufficiency proved at autopsy to be secondary to aplasia of the dorsal anlage, a rare anomaly.
