Abstract

A retrospective study of 270 children between the ages of 1 day and 15 years, admitted with intestinal obstruction to the University Department of Surgery, General Hospital, Kuala Lumpur was done. The commonest cause of intestinal obstruction was Hirschsprung's disease (19.3%) followed by intussusception (18.9%), hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (12.6%) and intestinal atresia (10.7%). Of the three major races, Indians were least susceptible to intussusception and Hirschsprung's disease but were most commonly affected by pyloric stenosis and worm bolus obstruction. Intussusception was predominantly found among Malays and Chinese.
