Gastroschisis is a congenital anomaly characterised by a defect in the anterior abdominal wall through which the intestinal contents freely protrude. Defect is located almost always to right of umbilicus. To our knowledge very few cases of left-sided gastroschisis have occurred and presented in literature. We report case of left-sided gastroschisis with caecal agenesis, short gut, and malrotation of intestine.
