Abstract

Esophageal congenital stenosis is an unusual type of malformation that occurs due to incomplete division of the esophagus and respiratory system. Generally, it shows up with persistent vomiting that tends to debut or exacerbate with the introduction of complementary feeding and solid foods. A high degree of suspicion is necessary for diagnosis from Primary Care pediatricians. A high digestive endoscopy with normal mucosa and a digestive transit confirm the diagnosis. There is controversy regarding the treatment of choice, conservative treatment is preferred by initial endoscopic dilations.
