Median arcuate ligament syndrome also known as Dunbar syndrome is caused by compression of the celiac axis by the median arcuate ligament. It typically presents with postprandial epigastric pain, weight loss, and vomiting, with the incidence being two cases per lakh in the third to the fifth decade.
