1/5. plummer-vinson syndrome--a rare presentation in a child.

    Plummer-Vinson (Paterson, Brown-Kelly) syndrome refers to the association of iron-deficiency anaemia with dysphagia secondary to a post-cricoid web. Only seven cases of plummer-vinson syndrome in children and adolescents between the ages of 14 and 19 have been reported in the world literature. We report a case of the syndrome occurring in a child of 14 years and provide a short review of the present knowledge concerning the symptom complex.

    Plummer Vinson syndrome is characterised by dysphagia, iron deficiency, anaemia and oesophageal web or webs. This is a case report of a 33 year old Asian female who presented with slowly progressive dysphagia and a long history of iron deficiency anaemia. The anaemia was confirmed on repeated haemograms and a barium swallow revealed an upper oesophageal web. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and forceful dilatation were necessary to effect relief of dysphagia.

    The plummer-vinson syndrome is characterized by dysphagia, iron-deficiency anemia, and esophageal webs. The webs are best diagnosed by cineradiography. iron repletion often improves the dysphagia, although some patients require esophageal dilatation or bougienage. The syndrome is associated with an increased incidence of postcricoid carcinoma, and surveillance endoscopy is recommended.
