Abstract

We report a case of hypoxic-ischemic injury caused by acute hemorrhage from an umbilical cord ulceration in a newborn infant with an antenatal diagnosis of small bowel obstruction. Recognition of the association between umbilical cord ulceration and small bowel obstruction may alter obstetric and delivery room management.
