To the authors' knowledge, there had been no reported pediatric case of total cicatrization of the stomach owing to acid ingestion. The authors report a case caused by sulfuric acid ingestion. When admitted, the child did not have any oral intake and was fed through a jejunostomy, which had been placed in an other center. An upper gastrointestinal barium study showed a small gastric fundal pouch and no passage to the duodenum, but with passage to the jejunum through two fistulas. The modified Hunt-Lawrence pouch was created using the fistulous jejunal segment. After 6 months the patient is well. © 1995.
