Herein, the authors report a case of ileal atresia who failed to have good bowel function after primary anastomosis. After the leakage of the revised anastomosis, a thorough pathological review found distal aganglionosis. An ileostomy followed by an ileocolic patch operation were performed for temporary decompression, awaiting intestinal adaptation. A definitive pull-through was performed, eight months later. The child also had bilateral cleft lip together with complete cleft palate, and hemivertebrae of the thoracic spines. A cluster of malformations is unusual in a single patient.
