Abstract

Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy has been increasingly used in children for various diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. But this has not always been a morbidity free procedure especially in small kids. Three patients who presented with history of endoscopic intervention followed by abdominal pain and radiographic evidence of free air under diaphragm were managed conservatively over a period of two years.
