Infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (IHPS) results in electrolyte disturbances
due to persistent vomiting. Though the significance of hyperventilation in metabolic acidosis is established, debate continues regarding hypoventilation in
metabolic alkalosis. We present six cases of respiratory depression requiring ICU
admission in infants with hypochloremic, hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis due
to IHPS.
