Abstract

Among 600 infants examined with ultrasound for vomiting, seven (mean age, 3 months) had distinctive features that can be considered diagnostic of gastric ulcer. The findings are thickening of the mucosa (> 4 mm) in the antropyloric region, elongation of the antropyloric canal, persistent spasm, and delayed gastric emptying. Two of the infants had slight thickening of the pyloric muscle. Gastrointestinal series or endoscopy demonstrated thickened gastric mucosa and a deformed gastric antrum in all infants, as well as actual ulceration in five.
