Abstract

Objective: Cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) is difficult to diagnose, thus there is often a delay in diagnosis or a misdiagnosis. In the absence of an adequate understanding of the pathophysiology of the syndrome, it is under-recognised and treatment is difficult. The present case series aimed to assess and manage three adolescents with CVS.
