Atresia of the esophagus is characterized by a lack of continuity of the esophagus with the rest of the gastrointestinal tract and a direct connection of the lower part of the esophagus and stomach to the lungs.
Malformation incompatible with life, it must be recognized as soon as possible. The diagnosis is made from birth by the passage of a digestive probe, introduced by the nostril and can not be pushed into the stomach.
