  • Megacystis microcolon intestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome: a report of a
    • Authors: Al-Salem; Ahmed H.
      Abstract: image Megacystis microcolon intestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome is a very rare cause of functional intestinal obstruction in newborns. It is associated with nonobstructed distended urinary bladder, microcolon, and decreased or absent intestinal peristalsis. The prognosis is poor and most patients die early because of sepsis or total parental nutrition-related complications. This report describes a new case of megacystis microcolon intestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome associated with meconium ileus, dilated stomach, and megaesophagus.

  • Post-female-circumcision clitoral epidermal inclusion cyst: a case report
           and a review of literature
    • Authors: Sarhan; Osama M.; Al-Ghanbar, Mustafa S.; Nakshabandi, Ziad M.
      Abstract: image Cysts involving the female external genitalia are rare. These cysts are either congenital or acquired. Iatrogenic epidermoid cysts have been reported after female genital mutilation, which is common in some parts of Africa and the Middle East. We report a case of acquired epidermoid inclusion cyst of the clitoris following female circumcision in a 5-year-old girl. The cyst was surgically excised and histopathologic evaluation revealed an epidermal-type inclusion cyst.

  • Ruptured hepatoblastoma treated with primary surgical resection
    • Authors: Gentile; Lori F.; Islam, Saleem
      Abstract: image The aim of this study was to review two cases of ruptured hepatoblastoma treated with primary surgical resection. Hepatoblastoma is the most common primary liver malignancy of childhood, although it remains infrequent. A rare, but serious condition is when the tumor presents with spontaneous rupture. This is a well-known phenomenon; however, it is rarely reported in the literature, and the long-term outcomes of various management strategies are currently unclear. We present two cases of patients in whom primary surgical resection was performed and discuss outcomes, and also present a current literature review. Children with ruptured hepatoblastoma treated with emergency primary surgical resection, followed by adjuvant chemotherapy, may have favorable outcomes.

  • First thoracoscopic repair of tracheoesophageal fistula in the UAE: a case
           report and a review of the literature
    • Authors: Hassan; Mohamed E.; Ali, Khalid Al
      Abstract: image Repair of esophageal atresia/tracheoesophageal fistula (EA/TEF) with open thoracotomy is associated with significant chest wall deformity. However, with the advancement made in minimally invasive instruments, thoracoscopic repair of this anomaly is achievable. We report our first successful case of thoracoscopic repair of EA/TEF. The surgical steps followed have been enumerated, as well as the postoperative management protocol. Thoracoscopic repair of EA/TEF is a real advantage for affected babies.

  • Complications of ventriculoperitoneal shunt in hydrocephalic children: a
           case report and a review of the literature
    • Authors: Erikci; Volkan; Ganiüsmen, Ozan; Hosgör, Münevver
      Abstract: image This case study was carried out to focus on three unusual cases of complications in hydrocephalic children with ventriculoperitoneal shunts (VPSs) – namely, intestinal obstruction and protrusions of the shunt catheters into the right hemiscrotum. These children were treated at the Department of Pediatric Surgery, Dr. Behçet Uz Children’s Hospital, and at the Department of Neurosurgery, Tepecik Training Hospital. Management of these patients with special emphasis on the literature pertaining to the migration of shunt catheters into the scrotum is reviewed and discussed. Complications of intestinal obstruction and protrusion of the VPS catheters into the scrotum are rarely seen in hydrocephalic children with VPSs. Early identification of these complications is recommended as they may cause life-threatening acute abdominoscrotal conditions, and prompt surgical intervention is necessary not only for immediate treatment of the child but also to ensure good quality of the patient’s life in the long term.

  • Experience with full-thickness rectal biopsy in the evaluation of patients
           with suspected Hirschsprung’s disease
    • Authors: Bamigbola; Kayode T.; Nasir, Abdulrasheed A.; Abdur-Rahman, Lukman O.; Oyinloye, Adewale O.; Abdulraheem, Nurudeen T.; Adeniran, James O.
      Abstract: image Background and purposeRectal biopsy is the main modality for the diagnosis of Hirschsprung’s disease (HD). In Africa, transanal full-thickness rectal biopsy is commonly performed. We aimed to audit our practice of rectal biopsy in the evaluation of HD. Materials and methodsA retrospective review was carried out of the records of children (≤15 years) who were evaluated for HD between 2007 and 2011. Clinical presentation, details of the operation, and histologic result were analyzed using SPSS version 15.0. ResultsFifty-seven children were evaluated for suspected HD during the period. Thirty-six children underwent a rectal biopsy. There were 29 (80.6%) males and nine (19.4%) females, of which two were preterm. Neonates and infants accounted for 72.2% (n=26). The median age at biopsy was 90 days (range, 5 days to 9 years). Delayed passage of meconium was present in 64.7%, constipation in 85.7%, abdominal distension in 88.6%, and bilious vomiting in 55.9%. Thirty biopsies (83.3%) yielded a histologic diagnosis. Twenty-six (72.2%) confirmed HD, whereas four (11.1%) yielded normal rectal histology. In six (16.7%), the sample taken was deemed inadequate for opinion. None of the symptoms assessed was associated significantly with a diagnosis of HD, stalling further analysis. Where a single biopsy was taken, 20% (n=5) were inadequate for analysis; where more than one sample was taken, a histologic diagnosis was possible in 100% (n=11). Consultant surgeons and trainees returned inadequate samples in 15.8% (n=3) and 12.5% (n=2), respectively. An inadequate sample was obtained in four infants (15.4%) and one child older than 1 year of age (10%). Distance of biopsy from the dentate was not indicated in 63.9% (n=23). ConclusionNo clinical parameter can accurately predict a diagnosis of HD. More than one sample at a sitting may improve the diagnostic yield. Larger prospective studies are needed to confirm these findings.

  • Diagnostic value of inflammatory markers (complete blood count,
           erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and C-reactive protein) in children with
           acute appendicitis
    • Authors: Amanollahi; Omid; Salimi, Javad; Diaz, Diana Noemi
      Abstract: image ObjectiveThe aim of the study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of inflammatory markers [complete blood cell count (CBC), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C-reactive protein (CRP)] for the differentiation of acute appendicitis from nonspecific abdominal pain in children. Patients and methodsIn this prospective study, 150 children admitted for referral to Mohammad Kermanshahi Hospital (Kermanshah, Iran) (from June 2011 to May 2012), and suspected to have acute appendicitis were enrolled. Careful assessment of history and observation of physical signs were performed and evaluated during the hospitalization period; decisions to operate or to observe were made on the basis of clinical characteristics. Patients who had acute appendicitis, according to the pathologic report, were included in the study group and patients who had nonspecific abdominal pain were included in the control group. Venous blood samples were taken from all patients on admission and sent to the laboratory and CBC, ESR, and CRP levels were measured. Serum CRP level more than 8 μg/ml, ESR more than 20 mm/h, and white blood cell (WBC) count more than 10 000/mm3 were considered abnormal. Sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive, and negative predictive values were calculated for each test and in combination. ResultsIn total, 150 patients were studied in two groups; 54% were females and 46% were males. The mean age of the patients was 7.7±1.3 years in the study group and 8.7±1.3 years in the control group. In the study group, 80% had leukocytosis (WBC>10 000), 64% had elevated ESR, and 70.6% had elevated CRP. However, in the control group (nonspecific abdominal pain), 17.3% had leukocytosis, 25.3% had elevated ESR, and 26.6% had elevated CRP. ConclusionThe results of our studies showed that inflammatory markers in patients with acute appendicitis are significantly higher than those in children who have nonspecific abdominal pain. Measurement of these markers is valuable in the diagnosis of appendicitis in children. The diagnostic value of CBC is higher than that of ESR and CRP.

  • Esophageal atresia: our experiences in a university hospital
    • Authors: Askarpour; Shahnam; Hafezi, Mohammad-Hassan; Javaherizadeh, Hazhir; Alavi, Mostafa
      Abstract: image Introduction and aimEsophageal atresia is a relatively common congenital malformation occurring one in 2500–3000 live births. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency, type of anomaly, and mortality and to detect the associated anomaly in patients with esophageal atresia. Patients and methodsAll neonates with diagnosis of esophageal atresia who were referred to pediatric surgery ward of Imam Khomeini Hospital were included in this study. Duration of this study was 10 years from 20 March 1997 to 20 March 2006. For comparison, duration of the study was divided into two periods (1997–2001 and 2002–2006). Sex, mortality rate, associated anomalies, type of atresia, mortality, performing thoracostomy or gastrostomy, and packed cell infusion were studied. Gross classification was used for typing of anomaly. Analysis was performed using the Pearson χ2-test and analysis of variance using SPSS. ResultsIn this study, 198 (male=100, female=98) neonates were included. The most frequent type of atresia was type C (93.4%). Overall mortality rate was 50%. Mortality during the first period was 54.43% and during the second period was 47.05% (P=0.384). The mean age at the second surgery was significantly higher in type D patients compared with others. The rate of gastrostomy was significantly higher during the first period (89.87%) compared with the second period of study (79.27%) (P=0.002). The rate of cervical esophagostomy was decreased from 8.86 to 4.23% (P=0.228). ConclusionMortality rate has decreased in our hospitals. The rate of gastrostomy decreased during the second period of study. The age at the first surgery was significantly higher in type D classification patients.

  • Clinical scores for prediction of acute appendicitis in children in a
           hospital of Lima, Perú
    • Authors: Guzmán; Edson; García, Nadia
      Abstract: image ObjectiveTo determine the usefulness of the Alvarado score and the Pediatric Appendicitis score (PAS) in the Pediatric Emergency of the National Hospital Daniel A. Carrion. Materials and methodsA prospective observational study was carried out of patients younger than 15 years of age with abdominal pain and suspected acute appendicitis (AA) attending the Pediatric Emergency in a Hospital of Lima, Peru. These patients underwent a survey to assess the parameters of the Alvarado score and PAS. ResultsThree hundred and seventeen patients with abdominal pain and suspected of AA were recruited over a study period of 12 months. Of the patients, 232 were considered to have AA clinically and underwent surgery. 85.3% were confirmed by pathology and 14.7% were normal. The mean Alvarado score was 8.27±1.31; the mean Surgical Procedure Assessment (SPA) score was 8.08±1.47. Sensitivity and specificity for both scores are equivalent. The area under the curve for the Alvarado score and SPA were 0.887 and 0.901, respectively. Alvarado score higher than 6 had a sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), negative predictive value (NPV), and accuracy of 88.9, 75.6, 97.4, 68.1, and 86.4%, respectively. SPA higher than 6 points had sensitivity, specificity, PPV, NPV, and accuracy of 84.3, 80.7, 94.7, 73.1, and 86.7%, respectively. ConclusionAlvarado score and the PAS are scores with high sensitivity, specificity, PPV, and accuracy for the diagnosis of AA when the score is higher than 6 points. The results found in our study justify their use in emergency services, but they should not be used as the only means of clinically determining the need for surgery.
