Default infant with repeated vomitings???

A 1-month-old infant is brought to the physician by her parents. She has had repeated bouts of bilious vomiting over the past month and cannot be fed adequately. She is in the 10th percentile for weight and the 50th percentile for length. An upper GI series discloses marked narrowing of the midportion of the duodenum. What is the most likely cause of this infantís GI obstruction?
(A) Annular pancreas
(B) Duodenal polyp
(C) Islet cell adenoma
(D) Pancreatic pseudocyst
(E) Pyloric stenosis

hmm... but there's "An upper GI series discloses marked narrowing of the midportion of the duodenum." and that is, I guess, even more important than character of vomiting..
