Gastroschisis is a congenital abdominal wall defect. Proposed classification of this malformation is simple if isolated or complex in the presence of coexisting intestinal anomalies at birth such as intestinal atresia, stenosis, perforation, necrosis, or volvulus. We report a case of gastroschisis with gangrene of intestine. At the time of surgery, we found a small abdomen wall defect through which intestine was herniating. In our view, it was the small defect that caused gangrene in the gut. Gangrene gut was resected and end-to-end anastomosis was done. The patient died owing to septicemia.
