Delayed gastric emptying in an infant with Sandifer syndrome

Ital J Gastroenterol. 1996 Dec;28(9):518-9.


The case of an infant with Sandifer syndrome is reported. Real-time ultrasonography showed delayed gastric emptying time, which returned to normal when the patient was asymptomatic. The importance of gastric motility investigations in Sandifer syndrome is stressed since delayed gastric emptying could play a role in the pathogenesis of this disease.
