Introduction: Cyclic vomiting syndrome is an idiopathic disorder, identified by recurrent stereotypic episodes of severe nausea and vomiting and intervals of normal health between episodes. There is no specific diagnostic test for Cyclic vomiting syndrome, and clinical features are examined for diagnosis. Many medications have been used in the treatment of Cyclic vomiting syndrome, such as antiemetic, anti-migraine, and sedative medications. Nevertheless, treatment is difficult in some resistant cases.
Case presentation: We report the case of a child with frequent and intensive episodes of vomiting after an asymptomatic two-year period. The patient was unresponsive to many medications, but was successfully treated with chlorpromazine and controlled using olanzapine, followed by aripiprazole. We also performed a brief literature review related to this case report in international databases.
Conclusions: Since management of CVS remains challenging to the clinician in sever and resistant patients, the empiric treatment of CVS is recommended.
