It has been associated with various other anomalies but its association with mesenteric cyst is rare. We are presenting a patient with antenatally diagnosed duplication cyst with multiple jejunoileal atresia and stenosis with possible etiology behind such an association.</p> 2018-09-26T10:15:32-04:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Anorectal Laceration due to Crush Injury: A Case of Rarity 2019-01-19T01:45:21-05:00 Serpil Sancar Esra Özçakır Mete Kaya <p>Please see fulltext</p> 2018-09-26T00:00:00-04:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Congenital Umbilical Appendix Misdiagnosed as Umbilical Granuloma: Report of 2 Cases 2019-01-19T01:45:21-05:00 Javad Ghoroubi Leily Mohajerzadeh Saran Lotfollahzadeh Khashayar Atqiaee <p>Background: Umbilical cord hernia is an uncommon umbilical anomaly which develops during 10th to 12th weeks of gestational age owing to failure of complete bowel return into coelomic cavity. In extremely rare cases appendix is the only trapped organ in hernia sac which may erode the overlying membrane and simulate umbili-cal granuloma.</p> <p>Case Report: Two infants presented with delayed umbilical cord separation with a reddish mass at umbilicus which was initially diagnosed as umbilical granuloma. Surgical exploration on failure of conservative measures revealed it as vermiform appendix. Appendectomy was done in both cases.</p> <p>Conclusion: Vermiform appendix at umbilicus is a rare congenital anomaly and may simulate other pathologies at umbilicus.</p> 2018-09-25T13:46:58-04:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Antenatally Diagnosed Suprarenal Mature Cystic Teratoma with Down Syndrome 2019-01-19T01:45:22-05:00 Aditya Pratap Singh Ramesh Tanger Maryem Ansari Arun Kumar Gupta Dinesh Kumar Barolia <p>Background: Teratoma is a germ cell tumor (GCT) arising from totipotent stem cells that differentiate into the tissues that are foreign to the anatomic site. Teratoma at the suprarenal location is extremely rare. The associa-tion with the Down syndrome also makes it unusual.</p> <p>Case Report: We are presenting here a case of one-year-old female infant with Down syndrome who had an antenatal diagnosis of right suprarenal mass. Laparotomy revealed a large cystic mass in the right suprarenal location which was completely excised. Right adrenal gland could not be seen separately from the mass. The histological diagnosis was a mature cystic teratoma.</p> <p>Conclusion: Adrenal teratoma is rare and may be considered in the differential diagnosis of antenatally diag-nosed suprarenal lesion. Its association with Down syndrome is rare finding.</p> 2018-09-23T04:49:00-04:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
