Abstract

Intestinal atresia is a life-threatening cause of intestinal obstruction in the neonate, and rarely a cause of intestinal obstruction in an infant. We report a rare presentation of an incomplete jejunal atresia in a 1year and 7 months old girl. She presented with a sub-acute upper gastrointestinal obstruction since birth associated with failure to thrive. Laparotomy revealed a jejunal atresia (type 1) which was successfully managed by resection of the atresic segment and a side to side jejunojejunal anastomosis.
