Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 13 year old girl developed cast syndrome following treatment for scoliosis. The presentation was atypical, with coffee ground vomiting and anemia which completely disappeared after removal of the cast. Abdominal pain and vomiting following orthopedic treatment of scoliosis should raise the possibility of cast syndrome, which is part of the superior mesenteric artery syndrome.
