Abstract


Duodenal atresia is a frequent cause of intestinal obstruction in the newborn. Obstruction due to duodenal web is infrequent, but its location other than second part of duodenum is rare with only a few cases reported in the literature. We are reporting three patients where we found duodenal webs at unusual locations. In one neonate the web was located at third part of duodenum and in other two patients the web was present at duodeno-jejunal junction (DJ).
