Gastroparesis is a gastric disorder that is characterized by delayed gastric emptying in absence of mechanical obstruction. There is limited data on the prevalence of gastroparesis in children [1]. It is felt that many children with gastroparesis may be misdiagnosed and thus mismanaged [2]. This problem emphasizes the importance of pediatric practitioners to be aware of the diagnosis and management of gastroparesis. Management is often frustrating for practitioners and patients alike as treatment options are imperfect.
