Persistent omphalomesenteric duct and urachus presenting as an umbilical hernia.

BMJ Case Rep 2022 Apr 1;15(4). Epub 2022 Apr 1.

Department of General Surgery, King Edward Memorial and Seth Gordhandas Sunderdas Medical College, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Vitellointestinal duct anomalies, although one of the most frequent malformations to be found (2%-3% in population), they are most unlikely to cause symptoms. A persistent Vitellointestinal duct can induce abdominal pain, bowel obstruction, intestinal haemorrhage and umbilical sinus, fistula or hernia which commonly occurs in children. Patent vitellointestinal duct or persistent omphalomesenteric duct is a very unusual congenital anomaly which occurs in 2% of the population related to the embryonic yolk stalk. Read More

Department of Pediatrics, E-Da Hospital, Kaohsiung City 824005, Taiwan.

The common clinical manifestations of Meckel's diverticulum include painless lower gastrointestinal bleeding and intestinal obstruction due to intussusception. Intussusception induced by inverted Meckel's diverticulum has rarely been reported; furthermore, there is no report thus far of chronic nocturnal abdominal pain as a presenting symptom in children with Meckel's diverticulum. A 4-year-and-10-month-old girl with no significant history of previous illness presented with the sole complaint of chronic nocturnal abdominal pain for 3 months. Read More

Am J Case Rep 2021 Oct 8;22:e933341. Epub 2021 Oct 8.

Department of General Surgery, Venizeleio General Hospital of Heraklion, Heraklion, Crete, Greece.

BACKGROUND Intussusception is a rare pathological entity in adults and remains a diagnostic challenge for clinicians, as it shares many clinical signs and symptoms with other morbid conditions (including appendicitis, abdominal hernias, colic, volvulus, and Meckel diverticulum). High clinical suspicion and use of appropriate imaging techniques are essential for early diagnosis and treatment of intussusception. Surgical intervention is the treatment of choice in cases of sustained and persistent invagination. Read More

Incidental Ultrasound Diagnosis of Neonatal Intussusception Secondary to Meckel's Diverticulum in a Neurologically Impaired Child.

Am J Case Rep 2021 Sep 5;22:e932280. Epub 2021 Sep 5.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Regina Margherita Children's Hospital, Turin, Italy.

BACKGROUND Intussusception is the most common cause of intestinal obstruction in children, with a peak incidence usually before the second year of age, while in neonates it is a rare entity. We describe a delayed and incidental diagnosis of neonatal intussusception secondary to Meckel's diverticulum in a neonate with shaken baby syndrome (SBS). This is, to the best of our knowledge, the first reported case of a neonatal intussusception with a Meckel's diverticulum as a lead point in a neurologically impaired child. Read More
