Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The aetiology of infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (IHPS) remains obscure. Cases in twins, usually monozygotic, have been sporadically reported as evidence for the genetic origin of the disease. We present a case of IHPS in a pair of dizygotic male twins together with a review of the literature, focusing on the question of whether the twin cases actually support a genetic or an acquired nature of IHPS.
