Pyloric stenosis in Western Australia, 1971-84.


Analyses of hospital records and census data for 1971-84 showed no significant increase in incidence of infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis in Western Australia. No link was found between breast feeding and incidence of disease. Low birth weight, short gestation pregnancies, and paternal family history of the disease were significant features.
