Jodhpur disease is the name given to acquire Gastric Outlet Obstruction (GOO) of idiopathic origin. Persistent non bilious vomiting, pain and occasional distension of upper abdomen are the usual clinical presentation. This condition responds well to Henieke-Mikulicz’ pyloroplasty; however, laparoscopic management of Jodhpur disease is yet to become a widely accepted modality of treatment. Herein, we report a case of a three-year-old male child, diagnosed with Jodhpur disease who was managed successfully with three port laparoscopic Henieke-Mikulicz’ pyloroplasty.
