What is Pylorostenosis?

Description of the disease

Pylorostenosis is a condition in which the pyloric opening of the stomach becomes narrowed, obstructing the normal passage of food into the intestines. This can cause serious problems with digestion and absorption of nutrients.


  • Congenital pylorostenosis
  • Acquired pylorostenosis


  • Vomiting after feeding
  • Inability to take large amounts of food
  • Increased irritability in the baby


Congenital pylorostenosis is usually caused by genetic factors, while acquired pylorostenosis may result from stomach ulcers or tumors.


Diagnosis of pylorostenosis may involve ultrasound of the stomach, X-ray studies, and esophagogastroduodenoscopy.


Treatment of pylorostenosis may involve conservative methods such as diet and medication, as well as surgical intervention in severe cases.


Preventing pylorostenosis mainly involves timely consultation with a doctor at the first signs of digestive problems in a child.


Pylorostenosis is treated by a pediatric surgeon.
