Mallory-Weiss syndrome in a 10-month-old infant requiring surgery.


Journal Article

Mallory-Weiss syndrome is infrequent in children. Intractable hemorrhage requiring surgery has been reported in only one 6-year-old child in the English literature. We present a case of intractable hemorrhage from a Mallory-Weiss lesion in a 10-month-old infant requiring surgery. The incidence, etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of Mallory-Weiss syndrome in children is discussed in relation to this case.
