A patient was admitted with dysphagia, nausea and postoperative vomiting. These symptoms were associated with a more typical GERD. Exploration demonstrated the presence of a rare disease: a gastric diverticulum. It was typically located at the upper and posterior part of the greater curvature of the stomach. A typical GERD disease was demonstrated by pH-monitoring. It was proposed to manage both diseases simultaneously by laparoscopic resection of the diverticulum and Nissen fundoplication.
