A web or diaphragm causing duodenal obstruction is difficult to diagnose and manage. The patients frequently have multiple congenital anomalies, incomplete rotation of the gastrointestinal tract, a second obstructing lesion, and occasionally situs inversus. The pathologic anatomy of the web can lead to confusion during operation. A plan of management is outlined to avoid the pitfalls associated with this form of duodenal obstruction.
