MARQUEZ, Katherine et al. Epidermolysis bullosa with pyloric atresia: Report of two cases in consecutive siblings. Biomed. [online]. 2021, vol.41, n.2, pp.201-207.  Epub June 15, 2021. ISSN 0120-4157.

Pyloric atresia is a rare digestive malformation. It represents about 1% of intestinal atresias and is associated with some other genetic or anatomical alteration in 55% of the cases. In 20% of them, it is associated with epidermolysis bullosa, which is described as an established syndrome with a bad prognosis.

We present two cases of consecutive siblings with this condition and fatal outcomes in both of them. We made a review of the literature and discussed the main topics.

Keywords : Epidermolysis bullosa; infant, newborn; intestinal obstruction.
