Megacystis microcolon intestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome (MMIHS) is a rare cause of intestinal obstruction mainly affecting female neonates. We present a case of a newborn female infant with a history of abdominal distension, bilious vomiting and decreased urine output. Barium enema showed a microcolon. Patient died soon after admission and the autopsy(More)
A case of thymic carcinoma with glandular differentiation arising in congenital thymic cyst in a 50-year-old male is reported. Neoplasia in congenital thymic cyst is a rare phenomenon and is seldom associated with glandular differentiation. It is important to differentiate these neoplasms from carcinomas of the lower respiratory tract and from thymic(More)
A case of a Choriocarcinoma of the Ovary has been reported in a 50 year old post-menopausal woman. At laparotomy, the lesion was seen as a large necrotic ovarian mass. The problems of distinguishing Gestational from Non-gestational ovarian choriocarcinoma are discussed. Cytogenetic studies are indicated to investigate potential reasons for the difference in(More)
OBJECTIVE Hirschsprung's disease may be associated with a number of congenital anomalies of which Down's syndrome and intestinal atresias are commonly encountered. The study aimed to assess the impact of rare associated anomalies on the diagnosis and management of Hirschsprung's disease. METHODS A retrospective review of the clinical presentation,(More)
BACKGROUND A diagnosis of Hirschsprung disease requires the demonstration of acetylcholinesterase fibres on frozen sections obtained from snap frozen biopsies of the rectum. This histochemical technique is generally not available in laboratories in developing countries. We improvised on the methodology of tissue preservation to make the staining technique(More)
The definitive surgical management of Hirschsprung’s disease (HD) depends on an unambiguous histological diagnosis of bowel aganglionosis, as well as an accurate assessment of its proximal extent from the rectum or ‘leveling’. This study aimed to evaluate and compare the transition zone in rectosigmoid and long segment colonic forms of HD. One hundred and(More)
Intestinal neuronal dysplasia is a rare cause of bowel obstruction in neonates and infants, the diagnosis of which poses a formidable challenge to both clinicians and pathologists alike. The importance of this entity lies not only in the fact that it mimics Hirschsprung's disease, but also in that untreated cases, particularly of type A, may prove fatal.(More)
Arteritis of the uterine cervix and corpus described here was an incidental finding at the routine histopathological examination of the hysterectomy specimen resected from a 62 year old female who underwent laparotomy for twisted ovarian cyst. Investigations and eleven months of follow up without any specific treatment for arteritis, have shown no systemic(More)
We describe a 43 year old female who presented with pyrexia of unknown origin associated with Coomb's negative hemolytic anemia and impaired liver function tests of six months duration. A routine abdominal computerised tomographic scan showed a mass in the left adrenal which was excised at laparotomy and histologically diagnosed as pheochromocytoma. The(More)
Background The reliability of intraoperative evaluation of ganglion cells in the appendix as a guide to a diagnosis of total colonic aganglionosis is unclear. Objective To evaluate the diagnostic utility of appendicular innervation in colonic Hirschsprung disease (HD) and TCA. Methods Prospective, systematic study of ganglion cells and the neural plexii in(More)
