Abstract

Recurrent Infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis is a rare condition. It must be suspected if new projectile vomiting reoccurs after an uneventful postoperative period. It is usually caused by incomplete previous surgery or accidental duodenal injury during Ramstedt’s procedure. In general a new pyloromyotomy is required.

Two cases of hypertrophic pyloric restenosis are presented, and the nature of this condition is discussed.
