Özet

Inability to pass an oral tube in infants with esophageal atresia often leads to the diagnosis of this anomaly. This report describes an infant with a delay in diagnosis resulting from initial passage of an oral tube through a distal tracheoesophageal fistula into the stomach. (C) 2003 Elsevier Inc.
