Gastrointestinal involvement in Kawasaki disease: a case report.

Cardiol Young 2018 Aug 2;28(8):1070-1073. Epub 2018 Jul 2.

3Department of Pediatric Cardiology,Ankara Yuksek İhtisas Education and Research Hospital,Ankara,Turkey.

Kawasaki disease is an acute febrile multisystem vasculitis. The term Incomplete Kawasaki disease is used in the presence of a minimum of two diagnostic criteria of clinical Kawasaki syndrome accompanied by at least 5 days of fever, the absence of any other reasons characterising the disease, and the presence of severe systemic inflammation findings. Gastrointestinal symptoms, notably diarrhoea, abdominal pain, and vomiting, frequently occur, and elevated serum aminotransferases, gallbladder hydrops, and rarely other forms of gastrointestinal involvement such as ischaemic colitis, intussusception, hepatic necrosis, splenic infarct, intestinal pseudo-obstruction, colitis, and colon oedema are also reported.

Primary jejunal Burkitt lymphoma in a child: ultrasonic detection.

J Surg Case Rep 2018 May 14;2018(5):rjy090. Epub 2018 May 14.

Department of Radiology, Otsu Red Cross Hospital, Otsu, Japan.

Gastrointestinal Burkitt lymphoma (BL) is a highly aggressive malignancy in childhood, and early treatment is critical for its favorable prognosis. Ultrasonography is a widely accepted initial imaging workup; therefore, recognition of the sonographic features of BL should contribute to its early diagnosis and initiation of treatment. We present a 4-year-old boy with primary jejunal BL with intussusception mimicking presentation, in which initial abdominal US allowed sustainable detection and characterization of the intestinal lesion.

Ultrasonography: Applications in Pediatric Abdomen.

Indian J Pediatr 2016 Jun 14;83(6):553-64. Epub 2016 Mar 14.

Department of Radiodiagnosis and Imaging, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Sector 12, Chandigarh, 160012, India.

Ultrasonography (US) is a valuable imaging tool for evaluation of different clinical conditions in children, in general and abdominal conditions, in particular. The interest in US derives primarily from the lack of ionizing radiation exposure, low cost, portability, real-time imaging and Doppler capabilities. In addition, US application requires no preparation or sedation, making it particularly attractive in the pediatric population. Read More

Unusual childhood presentations of abdominal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Pediatr Int 2016 Apr 16;58(4):304-7. Epub 2015 Dec 16.

School of Medicine and Medical Science, University College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland.

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is a relatively common childhood cancer that can present in a myriad of ways. It is essential that NHL is included in the differential diagnosis of children presenting with an abdominal complaint, especially those with unexplained or prolonged symptoms. We describe three acute pediatric presentations of abdominal NHL, two of which presented as acute abdomen (the first mimicking intussusception and the second appendicitis), and the third involving lower limb edema.
