Infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (IHPS) is a concerning cause of non-bilious vomiting in the neonatal population. While a number of etiological theories exist, its exact cause remains nebulous. The question of an infectious etiology (or contribution) has been previously examined in case reports and case series, with recent support through suggestions of seasonality and familial aggregation with unclear inheritance patterns. This review discusses the published literature regarding infectious etiologies of IHPS. Further, it attempts to demonstrate that newer research regarding a NOS1 genetic etiology does not exclude, but rather can be consistent with, an infectious etiology.
