  • Caecal Adenocarcinoma in a Patient Mimicking Complicated Appendicitis

    • Authors: Muhammad Azhar, Tayyaba Batool
      First page: 1
      Abstract: Colorectal cancer (CRC) presenting with intestinal obstruction is uncommon in paediatric age and carries poor prognosis. We report a case of a 13-year-old boy who presented with acute intestinal obstruction, clinically appearing to be secondary to complicated appendicitis. Exploratory laparotomy revealed a caecal mass which was resected. Histopathology report showed only inflammatory cells with no sign of malignancy. The patient was discharged home after smooth recovery but re-admitted after 2 months with recurrence of intestinal obstruction. Considering clinical behavior of the patient, the tissue blocks obtained from first surgery were reviewed and it turned out to be a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma with positive mesenteric lymph nodes for metastatic carcinoma.

  • Endoscopic Management of Recurrent Third Branchial Fistula using
           Histoacryl Glue

    • Authors: M Z Naveed, A Naveed, A Irfanullah
      First page: 2
      Abstract: Third branchial cleft anomalies are rare accounting for 2-8% of all branchial abnormalities. We report a case of a 9 year old boy who presented with discharging sinus on the left side of neck. A sinogram revealed third branchial arch fistula. The tract was surgically removed, however, on follow up the fistula was recurred. He was later taken for endoscopic cauterization and injection of Histoacryl (n-Butyl cyanoacrylate ) glue into the tract, after which his wound healed swiftly. Historically, surgical excision of the fistulous tract has been the mainstay of treatment. Recently, minimally invasive methods are gaining wider acclaim and may potentially become the treatment of choice in the future.

  • Cystic Nephroma with Pleuropulmonary Blastoma: A Rare Dual Pathology

    • Authors: Kiran Hilal, Anam Khan, Nida Sajjad, Kumail Khandwala
      First page: 3
      Abstract: Cystic nephroma (CN) belongs to a heterogeneous group of renal cystic tumors while pleuropulmonary blastoma is an uncommon pediatric lung neoplasm, believed to be originating either from lung tissue itself or from the pleura. Synchronous development of pleuropulmonary blastoma following cystic nephroma is a rare entity in pediatric patients. The etiology and pathogenesis of this dual pathology is still unknown. We report a case of a child who presented with an abdominal mass diagnosed as cystic nephroma on surgical resection, who later developed a thoracic lesion which was subsequently diagnosed as pleuropulmonary blastoma.

  • Spontaneous Rupture of a Congenital Diaphragmatic Eventration in an Infant

    • Authors: Nitinkumar Borkar, Rohit Meshram, Atul Jindal, Nitin Kashyap, Debajyoti Mohanty
      First page: 4
      Abstract: Rupture of eventration of diaphragm is a rare entity that commonly presents as sudden onset respiratory distress. We report a case of a 7-month-old infant with congenital diaphragmatic eventration having spontaneous diaphragmatic rupture which led to secondary diaphragmatic herniation with gastric volvulus. Clinical diagnosis of gastric volvulus was suspected on the basis of imaging and failed entry of nasogastric tube into stomach. Exploratory laparotomy revealed rupture of eventration of diaphragm and gastrothorax with volvulus. Anatomical repair of diaphragmatic perforation followed by diaphragmatic plication resulted in successful outcome in our patient.
