Duodenal atresia (DA) is one of the most common sites of neonatal intestinal obstruction and is frequently associated with various other anomalies. An isolated variant of DA has a better prognosis. Some associated intestinal abnormalities are not compatible with survival and definitive surgery could not be offered; however, these associated anomalies can be identified during laparotomy only. We present the case of a neonate with DA associated with the absence of the entire small bowel and also discuss its relevant embryology and pathology.
