A patient with persistent vomiting in pregnancy due to oesophageal stricture secondary to reflux oesophagitis is reported. Reflux oesophagitis is common during pregnancy but usually responds to small frequent meals, the avoidance of certain positions and simple antacid therapy. Where symptoms are persistent and become worse in late pregnancy we suggest that more energetic therapy in the form of cimetidine or alginate antacid mixture (Gaviscon) should be considered to prevent oesophageal stricture formation.
