Background. Intestinal atresia refers to complete obstruction or partial stenosis of the intestinal lumen. The prevalence is 1/4000-5000 births, without gender predilection. When the blockage is incomplete, signs such as vomiting, abdominal distension, and constipation may occur shortly after birth or delayed in an unspecified manner. In intestinal atresia, the challenge may not be significant; however, stenosis may pose considerable difficulties. Obstructive syndrome must be ruled out in infant congenital intestinal stenosis. Even more rare cases have occurred during later ages. Case Report. We report on a 5-month-old female infant with clinical symptoms of intestinal obstruction, which was managed surgically. Surgical finding was a congenital stricture of the ileum. The patient recovered without complications. Conclusions. Obstructive syndrome in infant intestinal stenosis is a rare entity, which is usually not first suspected, but it should be ruled out as a study protocol for intestinal obstruction.
