Abstract

A 32-year-old woman visited our department because of repeated regurgitation of foodC and was diagnosed with rumination syndrome based on possession of symptoms typical for it. Although rumination syndrome is classified as a functional esophageal disorder according to the Rome II criteriaC it is not well known in JapanC and there have been no previous reports of it in an adult with normal intelligence. Since patients with rumination syndrome are often misdiagnosed and receive unnecessary treatmentC awareness of it by physicians is important.
