Congenital malformation is one of the most common causes of infant mortality. The Russian Healthcare Ministry has approved a wide range of measures to decrease the number of babies born with malformations. Due to the measures taken, prenatal diagnostics of such malformations as cardiac malformation, nervous system malformation, various space occupying lesions has become more effective. However, there is a number of malformations hardly detected until the birth. This problem also concerns some abnormalities of the gastrointestinal tract. One of such malformations "silent" during prenatal diagnostics is, particularly, focal aplasia of the stomach muscular layer. This work deals with the case of such malformation observed in a newborn baby.
