Infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (IHPS) is a common surgical condition encountered in early infancy, occurring in 2–4 per 1000 live births. It is characterized by hypertrophy of the circular muscle, causing pyloric narrowing and elongation. The incidence of disease varies widely with geographic location, season, and ethnic origin. Boys are affected four times more often than girls.
