Patient vitellointestinal duct (VID) is not very common because of its varied presentation and complication, and the prolapse of an inverted ileal loop through patent VID is an extremely rare presentation. Here, we report a case of a 4-month-old boy of patent VID through which distal half of the inverted ileal loop got prolapsed, appearing as Y loop. Emergency laparotomy was done. The ileal loop was reduced and resection anastomosis of the involved ileal segment was performed.
