Marked gaseous distension of the stomach and proximal duodenum, with absent bowel gas distally.
The baby had an unremarkable antenatal course, and the diagnosis was not expected at birth.
This case highlights the importance of vigilant antenatal morphology review, as a pre-natal diagnosis would have assisted with immediate postnatal care. Baby recovered well following repair of duodenal atresia.
