Abstract

Colonic atresia and choledochal cyst are rare congenital abnormalities and there are few cases of their coexistence reported in the literature. We report a case of choledochal cyst and colonic atresia in a term neonate. Our prenatal ultrasonographic and intraoperative findings support the idea that these two entities may be related.
