Intestinal atresia is a common cause of neonatal intestinal obstruction. We present a rare case of duodenal atresia, multiple jejunal atresias, and apple peel appearance of the remaining ileum in a 3-day-old neonate. Multiple jejunal atresias were resected, and a duodenojejunostomy was performed. Although duodenal atresia is believed to result from failure of vacuolation process, this very rare association of duodenojejunal atresia with apple peel appearance of the ileum suggests that some vascular injury occurring during late gestation might also lead to duodenal atresia.
