Abstract

GANIE, N S  and  JANSE VAN RENSBURG, E. Wernicke's encephalopathy as a complication of gastroparesis after emergency partial antrectomy. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2015, vol.105, n.2, pp.162-163. ISSN 2078-5135.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/samj.9271.

Wernicke's encephalopathy is a common complication of malnutrition, alcohol abuse and gastric outlet obstruction. We describe a patient who developed Wernicke's encephalopathy secondary to gastroparesis, with no significant evidence of malnutrition, alcohol abuse, or gastric outlet obstruction.
