Abstract

The authors present a previously unreported association of different types of intestinal atresiain identical low-birth-weight twins. Both babies were affected by duodenal atresia, associated in the firstcase with a complete mucosal duodenal membrane and in the second one with an “apple-peel” jejunalatresia. These occurrences may suggest that they were either the consequence of linkage of 2 genes or apleiotropic expression of a single gene responsible for such rare conditions
