Colorectal lithobezoar: A rare case report
Muzamil Shafi Sheikh, Rizvi Malla Hilal, Afsheen Malla Misbha, Ahmed Reshi Farooq
April-June 2010, 15(2):62-63
DOI:10.4103/0971-9261.70642  PMID:20975785
We report an unusual case of a giant lithobezoar that was extending from the caecum to the anal canal, and the patient had no features of absolute constipation or peritonitis. It is believed to be the first such giant colonic lithobezoar in the literature.

Webbed penis: A new classification
Montasser El-Koutby, Mohamed Amin El Gohary
April-June 2010, 15(2):50-52
DOI:10.4103/0971-9261.70637  PMID:20975781
Aim: To introduce a new classification for the congenital anomaly of webbed penis and suggest an operative technique that can be planned according to the severity of webbing. Materials and Methods: A prospective study was conducted in two pediatric surgical units in Egypt and UAE on babies who were referred for circumcision. A preplanned written protocol was designed before commencing the study. Results: A total of 5,881 babies aged from 1 day to 6 months were seen in two pediatric surgical units. The webbed penis is broadly classified into primary and secondary types. The primary is further subdivided into simple and compound. Conclusion : We believe that the new classification will serve as a baseline for the anatomical variants and help to streamline the operative procedure accordingly.

Hirschsprung's disease: Role of rectal suction biopsy - data on 216 specimens
Zillur Rahman, Jafrul Hannan, Saiful Islam
April-June 2010, 15(2):56-58
DOI:10.4103/0971-9261.70640  PMID:20975783
Background: The diagnosis of Hirschsprung's disease (HD) is dependent on the histological study of rectal ganglion cells, and an open rectal biopsy was the mainstay that required general anaesthesia (GA) and carried risk of postoperative rectal bleeding. Suction rectal biopsy later gained wide acceptance and became the choice as there is no requirement of GA and virtual absence of any complications. Materials and Methods: A retrospective review of the histological findings of 216 rectal suction biopsies studied from 2005 to 2009. Results: There were 143 male and 73 female children. 196 (90.7%) children were within 1 year of age. Among 216 rectal suction biopsies 181 (83.80%) were aganglionic, 27 (12.5%) were ganglionic and 8 (3.7%) were inadequate. Majority of patients were of less than 1 year of age (94.47%). Conclusions : The rectal suction biopsy is a bed side procedure, safe, cheap and time saving. There is high degree of accuracy, simplicity and absence of complications.

Squamous cell carcinoma of esophagus in a 15-year-old boy
JB Hedawoo, NG Nagdeve, GN Sarve
April-June 2010, 15(2):59-61
DOI:10.4103/0971-9261.70641  PMID:20975784
A 15-year-old boy with well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma of the lower esophagus is reported because of its rarity. The patient presented with dysphagia for 3 months and weight loss. The case was treated with radical excision, with excellent immediate response.

Gastric lipoma
M Zameer, RP Kanojia, K. L. N. Rao, P Menon, R Samujh, BR Thapa
April-June 2010, 15(2):64-66
DOI:10.4103/0971-9261.70644  PMID:20975786
We report a 12-year-old-boy with gastric lipoma. Upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy with biopsy and abdominal computed tomogram (CT) scan revealed the diagnosis. Open surgical excision of the mass with stomach preservation was done. The clinical presentation and management are discussed and the literature reviewed here. This is the sixth pediatric case reported in the English literature.

Beware of neonatal appendicitis
Rizwan A Khan, Prema Menon, K. L. N. Rao
April-June 2010, 15(2):67-69
DOI:10.4103/0971-9261.70646  PMID:20975787
We report a neonate with acute appendicitis who was mistakenly diagnosed and treated initially as neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis. The diagnostic dilemma of this rare and life-threatening condition in premature babies and newborns is underlined. Awareness of this rare condition and possible differential diagnosis in this age group is also discussed.

Rectal prolapse in children: Laparoscopic suture rectopexy is a suitable alternative
Bipin Puri
April-June 2010, 15(2):47-49
DOI:10.4103/0971-9261.70634  PMID:20975780
Aim : To study the clinical outcome of laparoscopic suture rectopexy (LSRP) in children with persistent rectal prolapse (PRP). Materials and Methods : Nineteen cases of PRP were managed with LSRP from February 2005 to August 2009. Results : All were followed up for an average duration of 6 months. Only one child had recurrence and was managed with sclerotherapy. Conclusion : LSRP is safe, feasible in children and gives satisfactory results.

Congenital malformations in Assam
Hemonta Kr. Dutta, NC Bhattacharyya, JN Sarma, Giriraj Kusre
April-June 2010, 15(2):53-55
DOI:10.4103/0971-9261.70639  PMID:20975782
Aim : To determine the annual incidence of congenital malformations in Assam and to analyze the data. Materials and Methods : Data regarding babies born with congenital malformations in the state of Assam during the year 2006 were obtained through questionnaires and analyzed. The results were compared with similar Indian data. Results : The overall incidence of congenital malformation was 0.08%. This was considerably lower than similar published data from other states. Five hundred and eleven babies were born with congenital malformations, with 421 (82.4%) having major malformations. Males were affected more than females, 334 (65.4%) vs. 177 (34.6%). The gastrointestinal and genitourinary systems accounted for 26% and 25.8%, respectively. Malformation involving the central nervous system was more common in certain ethnic groups. Conclusions : The incidence of malformations in certain systems was at variance with the data from other states.

Liver abscesses with pyopericardium: Laparoscopic management in a preterm neonate
Praveen Ravishankaran, G Rajamani
April-June 2010, 15(2):72-73
DOI:10.4103/0971-9261.70648  PMID:20975789
We report a 28-day-old neonate presenting with signs of fever, abdominal distension, and refusal to feed. The baby was diagnosed to have multiple liver abscesses which ruptured and a tract lead to the pericardium resulting in a pyo-pericardium. Laparoscopic drainage of the abscess cavities and the pyo-pericardium was performed. An extensive search of the literature revealed that this case is the youngest one to have undergone such simultaneous laparoscopic drainage.

'PEN' appendicitis
Gabriel Ngom, Issa Amadou, Olivier Ngaringuem, Oumar Ndour
April-June 2010, 15(2):74-75
DOI:10.4103/0971-9261.70649  PMID:20975790
We report a three-year-old boy who ingested the tip of a pen and presented with signs of appendicitis. Plain abdominal radiographs showed the foreign body in the right iliac fossa. Surgical exploration revealed perforated appendix and the foreign body in its lumen. Appendectomy resulted in satisfactory recovery.
