This monograph, written in Spanish, gives the etiology, pathology, histology, diagnosis and treatment of pylorospasm. The material has been gathered from 21 cases that the author has studied very thoroughly. Of particular interest are the determinations of the blood and plasma chlorides and of the alkaline reserve that were made before and after operation.
