A 5-week-old-infant presented to hospital following the acute onset of non-bilious vomiting with clinical and acid-base features suggestive of pyloric stenosis. A chest radiograph obtained because of intercurrent infection unexpectedly revealed a left-sided congenital diaphragmatic hernia. A barium meal demonstrated the presence of an intrathoracic gastric volvulus, requiring urgent surgical management. We discuss the presentation and management of this rare surgical cause of non-bilious vomiting in infancy.
