Pyloric atresia (PA) is a rare congenital anomaly that constitutes approximately 1% of all intestinal atresias, and its incidence is approximately 1 in 100,000 live births. PA may occur as an isolated condition or associated with other abnormalities, the most common being Junctional epidermolysis bullosa (JEB). Evidence suggests that PA-EB (Pyloric Atresia - Epidermolysis Bullosa) Syndrome is a distinct entity. In this report, we present three cases of pyloric atresia, one of which was associated with Junctional epidermolysis bullosa. The literature on the subject is also reviewed.
