Abstract

         Combination of congenital esophageal atresia and subsequent hypertrophic pyloric stenosis is a rare condition which occurs in early infancy. The underlying etiology and pathophysiology of this association still remains unclear. In this paper we report a unique case of hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, for the first time, which occurred in an infant who underwent surgery for type I esophageal atresia. Therefore, we intend to highlight the role of poor nutrition intake in the incidence of this condition.
