Historically, the first case of congenital prepyloric membrane in an infant was documented in 1933 [1]. Since then cases have been reported only sporadically in the literature [2–8]. This is a case of congenital antral web which was identified by real-time ultrasonography, confirmed by barium meal study, and proven at gastrotomy.
