Congenital pyloric atresia (CPA) is one of the rare anomalies of the gastrointestinal tract, and when it is associated with other anomalies such as multiple intestinal atresia (MIA), the prognosis becomes poor. It is always difficult to know the associated intestinal condition before surgery. We here present a case of CPA with MIA with a review of pertinent literature. There are some pointers such as presentation with jaundice, history of MIA in the previous child, calcification on X-ray, and dilated common bile duct on investigation indicate toward this complex association.
