Infantile hypertrophic stenosis is the most common condition requiring surgical intervention in early childhood. The function and motility of the pylorus is guided by different systems involving enteric nervous system, gastrointestinal hormones and the interstitial cells of Cajal, is how different factors affecting these components are involved in the different hypotheses of pathogenesis of the disease. The diagnosis is typically based on clinical history, physical examination and imaging studies. The surgical management has been classically by Ramstedt pyloromyotomy, however pharmacological management has been raised by atropine sulfate.
