We present the case of a 18-year-old female patient with dyspeptic complaints lasting for three months, that relieved with inhibition of gastric acid secretion. She had a past history (two years before) of laparoscopic gastric banding for morbid obesity with therapeutic success two years before. Upper endoscopy showed mild distal esophagitis and proximal displacement of the gastric band.
