Massive small bowel resection often leads to long-term parenteral nutrition. The authors present a term-born, 3-day-old boy with midgut volvulus in whom only 17 cm of small bowel was left after resection. This patient was weaned from parenteral nutrition after 7 months. Temporary parenteral nutrition-associated cholestasis was treated with ursodeoxycholic acid
