Colonic atresia (CA) is a rare cause of intestinal obstruction of the newborn. It is the rarest atresia of the gastrointestinal tract. The survival rate is 90%. However, the delayed diagnosis and surgery after 72 hours of life, have a high mortality rate. We report our experience and we revised our case after a review of the literature to analyze the critical aspects of our management and improve our practice.


KEY WORDS: Colonic atresia - Gastrointestinal tract - Intestinal obstruction - Newborn infant
