Pediatric surgical diseases may present in a delayed fashion to the emergency department. In addition, these cases may have abnormal presentations when compared with presentations in the setting of the neonatal intensive care unit. A high degree of suspicion on the part of emergency physicians will allow for prompt and definitive consultation and treatment of our youngest patients. Here we present 3 such cases that were encountered in our emergency department that show the importance of a high index of suspicion.
