Abstract

Acquired gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) during infancy and childhood represents an uncommon event. We describe a 6-year-old boy with GOO who did not respond to medical treatment or to endoscopic pyloric balloon dilatations. The stenosis was successfully treated with laparoscopic pyloroplasty which relieved the obstruction.
