CONTEXT Portal annular pancreas is a rare congenital anomaly resulting from fusion of the pancreatic parenchyma around the portal vein/superior mesenteric vein. It is asymptomatic, but could have serious consequences during pancreatic surgery, if unrecognized. We describe a variant of this anomaly encountered during pancreaticoduodenectomy and propose a new… (More)
A 28-year-old primigravida at seven weeks gestation presented to the Accident & Emergency Department complaining of vomiting for five days. She was admitted and managed as a case of hyperemesis gravidarum. Two days later she developed abdominal distension. Ultrasound scan revealed ascites and common bile duct dilatation. The ascitic fluid was bile stained.… (More)
BACKGROUND Choledochal cyst, a common surgical problem of childhood, can have a delayed presentation in adults. The clinical course in adults differs from that in children because of a higher incidence of associated hepatobiliary pathology. METHODS The clinical data of 57 adults with choledochal cyst managed in a general surgical unit between January 1988… (More)
BACKGROUND Mycobacterium fortuitum is an uncommon cause of soft tissue infections. Treatment is often inadequate with persistence of infection unless the aetiological agent and its antibiotic sensitivity are accurately established. METHODS Medical records of 23 patients with chronic soft tissue infection caused by M. fortuitum over a 12-year period from… (More)
Inadvertent administration of enteral feed into an intravenous line is preventable usually by design of incompatible connectors, but these may not be available universally. We discuss a case report where this occurred and the subsequent management strategy.
Two percent of all malignant pancreatic tumors are metastases from other primaries, with small cell lung cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer and hematological neoplasms being the commonest. Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) metastasizing to the pancreas is rare and occurs in 2.8% of patients with metastatic RCC. However, RCC is the most common primary leading… (More)
Jejunal perforation is a known complication of abdominal trauma. We report two cases of jejunal perforation presenting nearly 2 months following blunt injury to the abdomen and discuss possible mechanisms for delayed small bowel perforation.
Cavernous haemangioma of the rectum is an uncommon cause of rectal bleeding. Initial diagnosis is often elusive because of lack of awareness. For accurate diagnosis, investigations such as endoscopy, plain X-ray of the abdomen, barium enema and selective angiography of the inferior mesenteric artery are required. Complete surgical excision of the… (More)
This is a case report of a 29 year old woman who presented with painless and progressive obstructive jaundice. Imaging investigations of the abdomen revealed a tumour of the common bile duct. She was treated by complete excision of the bile duct and hepaticojejunostomy. The histopathology report of the tumour read as benign schwannoma.
A 24-year-old man presented to us 10 days after suffering blunt trauma to the abdomen. He was diagnosed with pancreatic transection and underwent distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy. Two weeks after the operation, he developed intra-abdominal haemorrhage. Selective visceral angiogram revealed left gastric artery pseudoaneurysm, which had embolised. His… (More)
