Abstract
The congenital esophageal atresia with distal tracheoesophageal fisula is a developmental defect due to incomplete septation of the foregut during embryonic period and is often associated with other congenital anomalies. I experienced a case of the esophageal atresia with distal tracheoesophageal fistula in one-day-old female patient. Primary repair of esophageal atresia with distal tracheoesophageal fistula was performed but abdominal distension developed. UGI series was done and showed duodenal obstruction. I report this case with brief review of the related literature.
Key Words: Esophageal atresia, Tracheoesophageal fistula, Duodenal obstruction
