Özet

Congenital esophageal stenosis caused by membranous webs occurred in three infants. There were no associated anomalies. First patient applied with respiratory symptoms while the second and third patients reported food impactions. Correct diagnosis was performed during intraoperative (first patient) and esophagoscopic examination (second and third patients). Resection and anastomosis were performed in the first patient and hydrostatic dilatations in the second and third patients. In three patients, symptoms were relieved following treatment. In this report, etiology, diagnostic aids and management of this rare pathology are discussed.
