PURPOSE The aim of the study was to report a new observation of late-onset volvulus without malrotation (VWM) in preterm infants. METHODS The study used medical note review of infants with VWM identified at a single regional centre between 1996 and 2007. RESULTS Ten patients were identified. Group 1 includes 4 patients (gestation, 28-38 weeks; median,(More)
We present an analysis of 30 patients with fetal vesicoureteric reflux (VUR) from a series of 107 patients with prenatally diagnosed urinary tract anomalies. In 13 patients (Group 1) the fetal VUR was the only urinary tract abnormality. In 17 patients (Group 2) the fetal VUR was combined with other urinary tract problems. In 14 of 46 refluxing renal units(More)
Lyme borreliosis (LB) group spirochetes, collectively known as Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, are distributed worldwide. Wild rodents are acknowledged as the most important reservoir hosts. Ixodes scapularis is the primary vector of B. burgdorferi sensu lato in the eastern United States, and in the southeastern United States, the larvae and nymphs mostly(More)
We reviewed the final diagnosis and incidence of bowel pathology in neonates presenting with large bowel obstruction that was relieved by the passage of meconium plugs. A retrospective case-note review was undertaken of all patients with a discharge diagnosis of meconium plug syndrome (MPS), meconium ileus (MI), Hirschsprung’s disease (HD), or small left(More)
Of 222 infants with a urinary tract abnormality detected antenatally 30 male and 9 female patients (64 renal units) were found to have primary vesicoureteral reflux. Grade of reflux was predominantly severe, with grade III or higher noted in 83% of the patients. Prenatal and postnatal ultrasound failed to detect any abnormality in 29 refluxing units (45%)(More)
BACKGROUND Sequestration with associated cystic adenomatoid malformation is rare. A study was undertaken to determine whether pulmonary sequestration associated with congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation has a more favourable natural history than that of sequestration without associated cystic adenomatoid malformation. METHODS An outline of the(More)
The site of the stomach in 36 babies presenting postnatally with left sided congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) was assessed as a predictor of outcome. Babies with a thoracic stomach had a higher mortality (P less than .0005), and more frequently developed significant persistent foetal circulation (PFC) (P less than .001), than babies in whom the stomach(More)
Thirty neonates presented with signs of testicular ischaemia over a 20-year period. Eighteen children had primary exploration revealing extravaginal torsion (10), intravaginal torsion (3), infarction without torsion (2) and torsion of the appendix testis (1). The other two children had simple biopsy of necrotic testes. In two instances the testis was(More)
Between 1984 and 1994, 10 neurologically normal children between 2 and 24 months were diagnosed as having gastric volvulus with associated gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR). The common features at presentation were episodic colicky abdominal pain, non-bilious vomiting, upper abdominal distension, haematemesis, and failure to thrive. Anterior gastropexy and(More)
