Childhood intussusception-Saline hydrostatic reduction under ultrasound guidance : a prospective study
PY Henry, Hariharan, Joseph J S
April-June 2000, 5(2):51-57
ABSTRACT: A prospective study of hydrostatic reduction of intussusception under ultrasound guidance was undertaken in the Department of Pediatric Surgery, Medical College, Trivandrum, to assess its diagnostic accuracy and therapeutic efficacy. Between February 1998 and March 1999, 50 cases of suspected intussusception were taken up for this study. Of the 50 cases, 10 had no evidence of intussusception and were discharged on the same day. Forty cases with intussusception were taken up for hydrostatic reduction under ultrasound guidance and in 32 cases complete reduction could be achieved(80 percent). The diagnostic accuracy was 100 percent and its confirmation in the totality of reduction was also 100 percent.

K Bhowmick, U Chatterjee, Subir K Chatterjee
April-June 2000, 5(2):81-84
ABSTRACT: An infant presented at birth with a prenatal diagnosis of a large retroperitoneal cystic mass on ultrasonograms. Operation done at the age of 2 days, revealed a large cyst which was attached to the left adrenal gland and was removed in toto. Microscopic examination revealed foci of neuroblastoma in the wall. A diagnosis of in situ neuroblastoma was made and the patient had an uneventful recovery.

Duplication Cyst causing ileal atresia : a case report and review of literature
Kamlesh K Sharma, Ashutosh Purohit
April-June 2000, 5(2):78-80
ABSTRACT: Intra-uterine mesenteric vascular catastrophe is considered to be the main etiological process in jejuno-ileal atresia. Several other rare events have also been implicated as causative factors, for example, intra-uterine volvulus, fetal intussusception, persistent vitello-intestinal duct etc., but never a duplication cyst. Here we report a case in which a spherical duplication cyst of the terminal ileum had caused atresia of a segment of ileum over it.

Mesenchymal hamartoma of the liven
N Bhattacharjee, AJ Shah, DN Patel, JR Ganatra
April-June 2000, 5(2):70-73
ABSTRACT: Mesenchymal hamartoma of the liver is a rare benign tumor. It accounts for about 5 percent of all primary liver tumors in children. So far only 140 cases have been reported in world literature. Mesenchymal hamartoma per se is not a maligant disease, but lack of treatment may cause death. Thus early operative invervention is advisable. a large mesenchymal hamartoma of the right lobe of the liver presented with right upper abdominal mass for a short duration. After clinical and investigative evaluation, laparotomy and right liver lobe resection were done. There was an initial liver function derangement. However, the child recovered completely with proper supportive measures. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of mesenchymal hamartoma.
