Ramnik Patel, Joseph Curry, Edward Kiely, Keith Lindley



We wish to report a case of achalasia cardia in a young girl who presented with dysphagia and on investigation was found to have achalasia cardia. She underwent laparoscopic Heller’s cardiomyotomy uneventfully. She presented at 5 years with dyspeptic symptoms and repeat investigations did not show any evidence of recurrence or gastro-esophageal reflux disease but esophageal dysmotility was evident.

Key words: Achalasia cardia, Heller’s cardiomyotomy, gastro-esophageal reflux, laparoscopy, laparotomy
