Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The patient with partial gastric antral obstruction due to a diaphragm may present with obstructive symptoms at any age in life. Including the four patients presented, there are now 50 reported cases. Since the diagnosis has been unduly delayed in many adults, it is particularly important that those physicians and surgeons caring for infants and children be aware of this entity. If properly treated in infancy and childhood, many years of suffering and debility can be obviated.
