Retrograde Intussusception and Giant Meckel's Diverticulum: An Uncommon Encounter.

Cureus 2022 May 25;14(5):e25315. Epub 2022 May 25.

Paediatric Surgery, San Fernando Teaching Hospital, San Fernando, TTO.

Retrograde intussusception (RINT) and giant Meckel's diverticulum (MD) are both rare pathologies and are seldom encountered in surgical practice. Thus, it is exceptional for both conditions to be seen in the same patient, with very few published case reports in the paediatric population. This case describes a three-month-old male who was referred to our paediatric surgery unit following a diagnosis of intussusception on an ultrasound scan. Read More

Intussusception and COVID-19 in Infants: Evidence for an Etiopathologic Correlation.

Pediatrics 2022 06;149(6)

Department of Pediatric General Surgery, Regina Margherita Children's Hospital, Azienda Ospedaliero Universitaria Città della Salute e della Scienza, Turin, Italy.

Nonrespiratory conditions related to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infections have been largely described. Ileocolic intussusception has been reported in association with SARS-CoV-2 infection in 10 children, raising the possibility of an etiopathologic role for the virus, but none of these cases documented tissue pathology that would have supported SARS-CoV-2 intestinal inflammation. We report 2 cases of intussusception in patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection who were treated at different pediatric tertiary centers in Europe and provide evidence of the presence of the virus in mesenteric and intestinal tissues of the patients.
