ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a case that deals with gastroenterology. The case has been presented as a quiz for medical practitioners. A 46-year old man presented with general fatigue and abdominal discomfort. He had a surgical history of ileal perforation at the age of 40 years. His family history was unremarkable. On examination, there was no tenderness on palpation of the abdomen with increased bowel sounds. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy after spraying with a solution of indigo carmine dye showed swollen longitudinal folds transversed by linear furrows like "bamboo trees" on the lesser curvature of the gastric body. The article now asks about the diagnosis.
