Definition

Jejunal Atresia; Apple Peel Syndrome; Jejunal Atresia is a rare genetic disorder; Patients with this disorder are born with a partial absence of the fold of the stomach membrane that connects the small intestine to the back wall of the abdomen; As a result, one of the three portions of the small intestine (the jejunal) twists around one of the arteries of the colon called the marginal artery and causes a blockage (atresia); Symptoms in individuals with this disorder include vomiting, a swollen abdomen, and constipation;[NORD]
