    What’s your diagnosis?

    There’s no pylorus stenosis or tumor.

    I’ll post the correct answer in a few days!

    Correct answer:

    Achalasia.

    An idiopathic movement disorder of the muscles of the esophagus. There’s decreased peristalsis due to deficient smooth muscle tissue and incomplete relaxation and increased tonus of the esophageal sphicter. The esophagus also dilates over time due to stretching, because of the obstruction. The main symptoms are vomiting and trouble swallowing.
