Aspiration pneumonia often involves the RUL when there is esophageal atresia. Radiolucent, blind-end dilated pouch of upper esophagus may be seen on chest x-ray. Diagnosis. This condition is visible, after about 26 weeks, on an ultrasound. On antenatal USG, the finding of an absent or small stomach in the setting of polyhydramnios was considered a potential symptom of esophageal atresia.

Abstract/OtherAbstract: BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of esophageal atresia may be suspected on prenatal ultrasound scan in fetuses with a small or absent stomach or unexplained polyhydramnios.
The diagnosis of esophageal atresia is strongly suggested when there is difficulty or inability to pass (or repass) a nasogastric or orogastric tube. Resistance is typically encountered when the tube is passed to about 11-12 cm. Diagnosis of esophageal atresia is suspected in the prenatal period in which there is little stomach bubbles (bubble stomach) or not found on ultrasound after 18 weeks pregnancy. Overall sensitivity of ultrasound is about 42. The antenatal diagnosis of a combined esophageal atresia without tracheoesophageal fistula and duodenal atresia with or without gastric perforation is a rare occurrence. These diagnoses are difficult and can be suspected on ultrasound by nonspecific findings including a small stomach and To investigate the performance of prenatal diagnosis in the detection of esophageal atresia (EA). Methods.Prenatal ultrasound examination should also focus on associated anomalies given the high rate of syndromic cases. Ultrasound imaging of the fetus in the uterus will reveal the occurrence of polyhydramnios, a small abdomen, absence of fluid-filled stomach, lower fetal weight, a distended esophageal pouch, and VACTERL anomalies.Prenatal diagnosis of esophageal atresia.
