CONGENITAL ANOMALIES OF THE GASTROINTESTINAL (GI) tract may involve any part of the primitive tube from the hypopharynx to the anus. Stenoses, atresias, duplications, and obstructions are among the common lesions of the gastrointestinal tract.1,2 These lesions can be differentiated on the basis of data from the history along with physical examination, clinical presentation, and radiographic imaging. Findings from the history and physical examination significant in making the diagnosis of GI obstruction may include: (1) polyhydramnios, (2) large gastric aspirates, (3) abdominal distention, (4) bilious or nonbilious emesis, and (5) failure to stool.1
