The authors describe 6 cases of Apple Peel Small Bowel observed in the last ten year experience in Institute G. Gaslini of Genoa, Italy. They make a precision on early diagnosis and on surgical treatment, which is original, and also on post-operatory medical treatment. The importance of making an optimal nutritional support with total and partial parenteral nutrition for long time is of great significance to have a better outcome and psycho-physical development in such patients.
