Abstract

A well-nourished teen-age girl with psychogenic vomiting demonstrated clinical and radiographic findings of SMAS. Her upper gastrointestinal radiographic studies were normal a few weeks before and three years after the study in which radiographic findings of SMAS were present. Psychologic factors should be considered in SMAS when no condition involving inanition, immobility, abdominal compression, or coexisting abdominal disturbance can be identified.
