CONGENITAL PYLORIC ATRESIA IN A 2 MONTHS OLD FEMALE CHILD- A RARITY
Dr. Kamal Nain Rattan, Dr. Rashmi Hooda* and Dr. Deepali Garg
Congenital pyloric atresia(CPA) is an uncommon cause of upper gastrointestinal tract obstruction. Type 1 is the most common out of the three types. This often results in incomplete obstruction leading to misdiagnosis and late presentation. The outcome is good if there is isolated CPA. We are reporting a case of CPA in a 2 month old child presenting with on and off non-bilious vomiting. The case was managed successfully by surgical exploration and Heineke-Mikulicz pyloroplasty. Because of rarity, we are prompted to report this case with a wide review of literature.
Keywords: Congenital pyloric atresia, epidermolysis bullosa, multiple intestinal atresias.
