Congenital colonic stenosis is an exceptionally rare condition, with less than 15 cases in the literature. Although it has some similarities to small intestinal atresia and small intestinal stenosis, colonic atresia and colonic stenosis has been found in association with other anomalies such as Hirschsprung's disease, craniofacial abnormalities, and musculoskeletal anomalies. In this case report, we present a 6 month old male with suspected Loeys-Dietz syndrome (a connective tissue disorder), who presented with colonic stenosis.
