Abstract

Dumping syndrome or rapid gastric emptying syndrome is defined as the set of digestive and systemic manifestations that arise as a result of a rapid emptying of large amounts of liquids, osmotically active and solid foods. It can be early or late. Its etiology is multifactorial. Most cases appear as a sequel to gastric surgery (vagotomy and pyloroplasty, gastrojejunostomy, Nissen fundoplication), although idiopathic forms have been described, and cases that appear in a context of generalized autonomic dysfunction. We present a clinical case of a healthy adolescent with an early dumping syndrome, proper evolution after correct dietary measures.
