Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is the most commonly performed bariatric surgery worldwide. De novo gastroesophageal reflux disease after LSG has been reported in the range of 0%–34.9%. Benign lower oesophageal peptic stricture is rare and has not been reported till date. We present the first case report of benign oesophageal peptic stricture post-sleeve gastrectomy and its management. The management modalities for peptic stricture post-LSG include proton pump inhibitors, endoscopic dilatation and surgical management. Revisional Roux-en-Y gastric bypass along with optimal usage of serial dilatation and medical treatment has been shown to be an effective treatment for the same.
