Concurrent achalasia and severe obesity
Achalasia is a rare oesophageal motility disorder which classically is not associated with obesity. We present the case of a 50-year-old woman who underwent gastric by­pass and afterwards was diagnosed with achalasia. Follow­ing, she was treated successfully with peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM). A thorough medical history revealed that symptoms of achalasia had been present for 25 years and were the cause of inappropriate eating habits and conse­quently morbid obesity. This case story illustrates the im­portance of being aware of simultaneous occurrence of achalasia and morbid obesity. Furthermore, it demonstrates that POEM is safe and effective for symptomatic relief of achalasia after previous gastric bypass.
