Eosinophilic gastroenteritis is known to cause gastric outlet obstruction in adults, but has been reported only rarely in infants presenting with pyloric stenosis, a common form of gastric outlet obstruction in children. We describe two infants who presented with classic clinical and radiographic evidence of pyloric stenosis and who were found to have histologic evidence of eosinophilic gastroenteritis on gastric antral biopsies. Their presentation is compared with the clinical and laboratory findings of 47 other infants with pyloric stenosis.
