AbstractAchalasia (a Greek term meaning “does not relax”) is a rare motility disorder characterized by an absence of normal oesophageal peristalsis, an increased basal resting pressure, and failure of complete relaxation of the lower oesophageal sphincter (LOS). Less than 5% of all cases present before the age of 15 years, giving an estimated incidence of 0.1 per 100,000 children. Males and females are equally affected.
