Patent vitellointestinal duct (PVID) is one of the congenital malformation of incomplete obliteration of the vitelline duct. The foreign body impaction in PVID is a rare cause of gastrointestinal obstruction in the children. Here we are presenting a case of a 1-year-old child who presented with abdominal pain and bilious vomiting. Patient had history of serous umbilical discharge since birth. On exploration, we found a watermelon seed in the lumen of PVID. It was obstructing the lumen of small intestine. Foreign body was removed, and resection of patent duct was done. Moreover, an end-to-end ileoileal anastomosis was performed. Patient was discharged uneventfully.
