Aim of the study is to evaluate the causes of dumping syndromes following partial gastrectomies, and to report an unusual feature of dumping. A case of early dumping due to diverticular-like dilation of gastro-jejunal anastomosis is described with preoperative imaging and intraoperative picture. The surgical correction led to complete clinical remission; the common causes and physiopathological bases of dumping are reviewed and the role of en-Y gastro-jejunal reconstruction is underlined in order to reduce the risk of developing the syndrome.
