Vitellointestinal duct (omphalomesenteric duct) or vitelline duct is an embryonic structure which communicates the apex of the midgut to the yolk sac. During fifth and seventh weeks of intrauterine life, the vitelline duct normally disappears completely. This vitelline duct for unknown reason may fails to disappear completely or partially and responsible for a wide variety of anomalies. The connection in Patent vitelline duct (PVD) is usually to the ileum, but less commonly to the appendix or colon as in this report. When connected to the ileum, PVD may have large lumens, or with high output fistulas, which may result in electrolyte deficits, so that PVD management should include improvements in the patient's general condition, electrolyte deficit correction and surgical measures including laparotomy, fistula excision, wedge resection and ileoileal anastomosis
