Colonic atresia is the least common atresia of the digestive system. Antenatal vascularization disorder is the most common etiological hypothesis commonly accepted to explain complete forms. This anomaly can be isolated or part of a poly malformation syndrome. We report a rare case of colon atresia admitted to a low neonatal occlusion table, negative probe test. The surgical exploration objectified a type I colic atresia. The patient underwent a first colostomy then an end-to-end anastomosis, with good operating suites. In the light of this observation and after a review of the literature; we emphasize the rarity of the pathology and the difficulty of treatment, especially in the event of delayed diagnosis.
