Intestinal atresia is the most frequently encountered cause of ileus in the neonate. Of all atresias combination of small and large bowel atresias is extremely rare. In 1973, Guttman presented a case with multiple, widespread atresias of small and large bowel, intraluminal calcifications and a hereditary nature. This paper describes the detailed pathological findings of a similar case of multiple intestinal atresias and discusses for the pathogenesis of this rare condition. © 1996 Dr. K C Chaudhuri Foundation.
