Pyloric Stenosis, Sinus Venous Thrombosis


Medicine and Health Sciences | Surgery


Pyloric stenosis is typically diagnosed early and repaired after resuscitation and electrolyte correction in a timely manner. Delay in diagnosis or presentation of patient can lead to significant morbidity and even mortality. Here we present a case of pyloric stenosis leading to dehydration severe enough to lead to venous sinus thrombosis. This case highlights the importance of early detection of pyloric stenosis with timely correction of fluid status and electrolytes. Venous sinus thrombosis is a serious complication associated with our patient’s pyloric stenosis that has not yet been reported in literature.
