We present a case of hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS) with isolated esophageal atresia. The diagnosis was established peroperatively during the gastrostomy procedure, when the child is twenty six days old. The operation had been delayed for unpredicted reasons over a period of three weeks. During this interval she was maintained only on total parenteral nutrition. The presented case is unique in developing HPS without oral or gastrostomy feeding and some of the related theories on the etiology of HPS are discussed.
