Abstract

Intestinal atresia is commonly seen as one of the four types described in any of the specialty textbooks. None of those four types ever included a total jejuno-ileal atresia. We present the case of a one of the twin newborn infant, 34 weeks of gestation, 1300 g birth weight admitted in our department, for symptoms of high intestinal obstruction that proved to be an intestinal atresia of an unusual type, a total jejuno-ileal atresia. Inspite of this very serious malformation, the infant lived survived for over three months with just traditional methods of feeding.
