Gastric diverticulum is an uncommon form of diverticular disease that can occur at all ages but is generally encountered between the ages of 20 to 60 years. Only 4% of gastric diverticula occur in patients younger than 20 years old. Apart from Meckel's diverticulum, gastrointestinal tract diverticula are extremely rare, particularly during infancy and childhood with the stomach being the least common site of occurrence. We report a case of gastric diverticulum in a 40-day-old infant who presented with frequent vomiting and a failure to thrive. An upper gastrointestinal contrast study revealed a diverticulum on the posterior wall of the stomach located approximately 2 cm below the esophagogastric junction. The same lesion was also identified by esophagogastroduodenoscopy. Congenital gastric divertilulum should be considered in a differential diagnosis of vomiting and/or a failure to thrive in infancy.
