Department of Pediatric Surgery, Inönü University Faculty of Medicine, Turgut Özal Medical Center (TOMC), Malatya, Turkey Here, we report a case with intraluminal membrane (web) located in the lower esophagus causing complete obstruction. Esophagogram revealed complete obstruction near the esophagogastric junction. Surgical excision of the esophageal membrane was performed.

To our knowledge, only a few cases with membranous esophageal atresia have been reported. It must be remembered in neonates who cannot tolerate feeding. Keywords : congenital, obstruction, esophageal web, esophageal atresia.
