J Pediatr Surg. 1997 Oct;32(10):1502-3. doi: 10.1016/s0022-3468(97)90576-5.


This is the 17th report of the case of an infant who had ileal atresia associated with Hirschsprung's disease, and the second with ganglion cells distal to the atresia. Experience suggests that Hirschsprung's disease should be suspected in all forms of bowel atresia.
