Background: Pyloric atresia (PA) is a rare pathology. Calder presented the first pyloric atresia case in 1749 and Touroff, Sussman, Meltz, and their colleagues presented the first successful operation in 1940. PA has 3 types of anatomic variations: (1) type A, pyloric membrane or web; (2) type B, the pyloric channel is a solid cord; and (3) type C, in which there is a gap between the stomach and duodenum. Associated anomalies also have been described. Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) and intestinal anomalies occur most often with this condition.
