Abstract

• A case of pyloric atresia was treated successfully with side-to-side gastroduodenostomy. The mortality in treated cases is high, due to delay in diagnosis and inadequate relief of the obstruction. Side-to-side gastroduodenostomy or excision of the atresia with pyloroplasty offer the greatest opportunity for a successful outcome, as indicated by a review of the world literature.
