Abstract

Infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (IHPS) is a common condition in infancy, characterized by an acquired narrowing of the pylorus, which requires surgery. These infants usually present with projectile, nonbilious vomiting, with a palpable 'olive' in the abdomen and sometimes a 'peristaltic wave' after being fed with formula or breast milk. Although IHPS is a common disorder, its etiology is largely unknown. Surgical intervention is the standard treatment, preoperative preparation, however is essential to optimal outcome. In this review, the latest advances in IHPS regarding epidemiology, etiology, diagnostics and treatment will be discussed.
