Abstract


Congenital esophageal web is a rare disorder that presents a diagnostic and management challenge. In a female infant born at 31 weeks of gestation, significant secretions and respiratory distress were noted at birth. Chest X-ray demonstrated the nasogastric tube in the esogastric junction with no distal bowel gas. Esophagogram showed a congenital web near the esogastric junction. An endoscopic examination under general anesthesia showed a complete, thick membrane on the distal esophageal lumen. Endoscopic incision and cauterization of the web through the midline were performed, improving the clinical symptoms and esophageal stenosis.
