Seven patients born with pyloro-duodenal atresia are reported, one had an additional atresia of the small and large bowel, and another had a pneumoperitoneum probably secondary to rupture of the stomach. All patients had the same radiological findings and had no air distal to the pylorus. Consanguinity was elicited in four and a familial incidence of an identical malformation in siblings in six. 6 of the 7 patients were operated on and 4 are living and well 6 months to 5 years later. This report raises the total number of published cases of pyloro-duodenal atresia to 46, and provides further evidence for an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance.
