Forty-three control patients (neonate to 17 years old) were studied by upper gastrointestinal series to determine the position of key duodenal landmarks and the mobility of the duodenojejunal flexure with manual displacement. These results were compared with the duodenal positions of 35 children of similar ages with surgically documented malrotation. Nine(More)
Five neonates who were born at term and who had well-defined cystic lesions in the subependymal germinal matrix demonstrated by real-time cranial ultrasonography are reported. None had evidence of subependymal or intraventricular hemorrhage. Two of the neonates had congenital viral infections, one each with rubella virus and cytomegalovirus. Two of the(More)
In a 3-yr period, eight infants among 43 survivors of acute NEC developed intestinal stricture. Four infants developed multiple stricture after proximal diversion procedures, and four had single strictures after medical therapy. Nineteen cases of intestinal stricture after NEC were collected from the literature. Radiographic examinations at the time of the(More)
In three patients with cat scratch disease the liver was affected. All three had high fever (39 degrees C) for more than 3 weeks. Two of them had no peripheral adenopathy. Computed tomography of the abdomen revealed focal hepatic defects in two patients and periportal and periaortic adenopathy in the third. At laparotomy, there were nodules on the liver(More)
Seven patients with left-sided congenital diaphragmatic hernias at ages of 2--20 months are reported and five are described in detail. Radiographic findings were classic in one patient, but simulated inflammatory chest disease in two patients, gastric volvulus in three patients, and a pneumothorax in one patient. These misleading appearances if not(More)
Ventricular dilation is common following intraventricular hemorrhage. Neuropathologic studies have demonstrated that chronic posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus most commonly is a result of an obliterative arachnoiditis in the posterior fossa or is due to obstruction of flow of CSF within the ventricular system. Recent use of ultrasound scanning has demonstrated(More)
Three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) has an important role in determining the presence and extent of congenital and acquired craniofacial deformities. The authors compared the sensitivity and specificity of three-dimensional CT in the detection and characterization of craniosynostosis with that of planar CT and skull radiography. Eighty-two patients(More)
