This is a thesis for the medical doctorate. It is based on a study of 21 children with congenital stenosis of the pylorus. Dr. Ruiz reviewed the literature on the supposed causes of the condition and came to the conclusion that little is known except that there is a hypertrophy of the muscle of the pylorus and probably spasm. He discusses details of the medical treatment and believes that it can best be carried out in the hospital with the child away from the family. Such treatment should not be persisted in until the child is emaciated. As soon as it appears that good results are not going to be obtained, the Fredet-Rammstedt operation should be performed.
