Mallory-Weiss syndrome in children.

Abstract

We have described a case of Mallory-Weiss syndrome in a 15-year-old girl, and reviewed five other cases in children. Endoscopy was used to make the diagnosis in each case. All patients were successfully managed using conservative, nonoperative therapy, and no recurrent bleeding has been reported. Mallory-Weiss syndrome should be considered in the differential diagnosis of upper gastrointestinal bleeding in the pediatric patient.
