This paper emphasises the importance of surgical relief for congenital hypertrophic pyloric stenosis and analyses the clinical features of this condition in the light of a personal series of 25 cases. The pathology of the condition is briefly descriptionbed and an investigation into the neuromuscular pattern in the pyloric region in 12 cases suggests that the condition is congenital. A preference for general anaesthesia is given and the scheme of post-operative management descriptionbed.
