Chilaiditi's sign is a radiographic term used when the hepatic flexure of colon is seen interposed between the liver and right hemidiaphragm. Mostly asymptomatic, Chilaiditi's syndrome can present with abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, abdominal distension, tender hepatomegaly and change in bowel habits. Uncommon in childhood, the incidence seems to increase with age. We have experienced a case of Chilaiditi's syndrome presenting with vomiting in a 15-month-old boy. The patient recovered uneventfully.
