Pulmonary stenosis is an extremely common congenital lesion. Surgical repair is possible, and accurate clinical recognition is therefore imperative.

The following generalizations are significant:
I. Body Type and Facies. Normal physical habitus was the rule in our group. In several cases the growth and development have been reported to be retarded; British authors1 in particular have commented upon the moon face and blotched skin which seem to characterize the patient with pulmonary stenosis.
