Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report the case of a 7-month-old boy who presented with a history of vomiting since birth. A computed tomography study showed circumferential thickening of the lower oesophageal wall with enhancement of the mucosa. After a period of antireflux medication, the patient underwent simultaneous oesophageal dilatation and Nissen fundoplication. He is doing well at 2-year follow up.
