Pyloric stenosis: unusual presentations and rare assoclations.

Pyloric stenosis is a common paediatric surgical condition with a well-recognised pattern of clinical features. Diagnosis is usually straightforward and a Ramstedt pyloromyotomy is curative. We present three patients who developed pyloric stenosis incidentally during the management of other primary surgical conditions. Issues of diagnostic difficulty following presentation of pyloric stenosis in the post-operative period (all three patients), its rare syndromic associations (one patient) and its management in this unusual situation are discussed. An awareness of the unusual presentations of pyloric stenosis during treatment for other primary surgical conditions can help in earlier diagnosis and treatment.
