Abstract

Duchenne's muscular dystrophy(DMD) is an X-linked recessive disease. Clinical descriptions of the disorder focus principally on skeletal muscle degeneration. Another manifestation, which involves the gastrointestinal tract, may be fatal. But its prevalence remains undefined. We report here a case of acute gastroparesis associated with Duchenne's muscular dystrophy. In our case, the patient's symptoms were improved by prokinetic agents and timely decompression in life-threatening acute gastric dilatation.
