Infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis is an important cause of vomiting in the first 6 weeks of life in a neonate. The condition is life-threatening if left untreated because vomiting can lead to dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. Transabdominal sonography is highly accurate in its diagnosis. We present the case of a 2-month-old male infant presented with a complaint of vomiting for 1 month which was milky (nonbilious) and used to occur after feeding. Classical sonographic findings are discussed.
