Scintigraphy is a simple technique for the demonstration of gastroesophageal reflux, and is particularly suitable in neonates and infants. The authors describe a rare case of achalasia cardia in a 3-year-old child incidentally detected as a dilated esophagus with a stricture at the lower end during a scintigraphic study.
