A 3.5-year-old grossly cachectic female child presenting with recurrent vomiting, fever,abdominal distention, abdominal pain and severe weight loss was evaluated for the cause ofsevere protein energy malnutrition. Investigation revealed a massively dilated stomach withdelayed gastric emptying and normal pylorus. On exploratory laparotomy, diagnosis of primaryacquired gastric outlet obstruction (Jodhpur disease) was confirmed and she underwentpyloroplasty with uneventful post-operative period. To conclude, this entity should always beincluded in the differential diagnosis of gastric outlet obstruction with severe malnutritionespecially in older children.Keywords Jodhpur disease, protein energy malnutrition, gastric outlet obstructionAnn Gastroenterol 2012; 25 (2): 262-264 (EN)
