Mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalomyopathy (MNGIE) syndrome is a rare disorder that presents in childhood; however, marked delay in diagnosis is common. We report a case and review the literature describing the typical features that should alert pediatricians to the diagnosis. We also describe a novel management strategy for providing symptomatic relief.
