Abstract

Esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula (EA-TEF) is a well-known congenital anomaly and Type C variety of gross classification is the most common. Even for Type C variety, anatomy of upper pouch and lower pouch is not always the same. We are presenting three cases of Type C EA-TEF with unusual anatomy. In this type, upper pouch crosses over the lower pouch for a significant length. The cases are described here to highlight this variant of Type C EA-TEF which produces diagnostic dilemma. An early diagnosis of this variant, prevents morbidity and mortality.
