The annular pancreas is one of the most frequent congenital malformations that occur during the development of the intestine causing a partial or complete obstruction of the second portion of the duodenum. We present the case of a four weeks old baby girl who was transferred from the city of Oruro to the Hospital del Niño (Children’s Hospital) in La Paz due to incontrollable vomiting and low weight. The abdominal x-ray suggested duodenal obstruction that was evident on surgery, caused by annular pancreas.

Keywords : Incontrollable vomiting; duodenal obstruction; congenital malformation.
