A 5 year old female child presented to the emergency room with 15-20 episodes of non bilious, non-blood stained vomiting associated with mild abdominal pain of 4 hours duration prior to admission. Vomiting was not associated with fever, abdominal distension,
loose stools or constipation. At admission, she was given symptomatic treatment with intravenous fluids, anti-emetics and antacids. Within 3 hours of admission, she became restless, developed severe abdominal pain and retching, progressive generalized distension
of the abdomen, respiratory distress and signs of decompensated shock. We were unable to pass a nasogastric tube to decompress her abdomen. Erect x-ray abdomen showed massive dilatation of the stomach, paucity of distal gas shadow and significant pneumoperitoneum
shifting the intra-abdominal viscera to the midline.
