Case: 24 year old male with no significant past medical history presents to local urgent care with chief complaint of left knee pain. Patient reports playing basketball just prior to arrival and reports landing on left knee and "jamming it."
Answer: False. Infants present with non-bilious vomiting
Diagnosis: Pyloric Stenosis
Pathology: Pyloric stenosis is hypertrophy and hyperplasia of the pylorus with a multifactorial inheritance in families. The incidence is 5/1000 births in males and 2/1000 births in females. It is therefore more common in males; it is also more common in first-born infants, and in Caucasian infants.
Case: A six week-old previously healthy, term infant via vaginal birth is brought to pediatric ED for repeated episodes of vomiting over a one week period.

Patient is noted to be hungry following vomiting episodes
Case: A 2 year-old male with no significant PMH is brought to the Emergency Department by his mother for intermittent abdominal pain for the past two days.
