Gastroparesis is a syndrome characterized by delayed gastric emptying in the absence of mechanical obstruction of the stomach. Approximately 20∼40% of patients with a long course of diabetes mellitus and/or other complications, especially neurologic dysfunction, develop diabetic gastroparesis. Diabetic gastroparesis has been thoroughly investigated; however, few reports have considered an associated episodic cyclic vomiting pattern. We present a literature review and report the case of our recent experience with a 29-year-old male patient who presented with a cyclic vomiting pattern associated with diabetic gastroparesis.
Key Words: Cyclic vomiting syndrome; Diabetes mellitus; Gastroparesis
