Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm (SPN) is a rare tumor of the pancreas that tends to grow silently in patients at a young age, to a large size and mass. We report here a case of a small-sized SPN detected incidentally in a 12-year-old girl following a traffic accident. The tumor was 3.5 cm in maximal diameter and was found to have hemorrhagic necrosis without(More)

For International Neuroblastoma Staging System (INSS) stages III or IV neuroblastoma (intermediate or high risk), complete excision of the primary tumor is not always feasible. Most current studies on the treatment outcome of these patients have reported on the complete excision status. The aim of this study is to review the treatment outcome after the(More)
Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) is known to cause the watery diarrhea, hypokalemia, and achlorhydria syndrome. A 14-year-old girl was admitted with a 4-year history of persistent uncontrollable diarrhea and hypokalemia. Computed tomographic evaluation of the neck, chest, and abdomen were normal. Numerous polyps covering the entire colon and rectum(More)

Most of these masses prove to be congenital neuroblastomas (CNB), but the diagnosis is often confused with other benign lesions and the postnatal management remains to be controversial. The medical records of 18 patients that underwent(More)
In the current era of transplantation and therapeutic endoscopy, the role of the distal splenorenal shunt (DSRS) for portal hypertension (PH) has diminished. We reviewed the outcome of the use of DSRS in children to determine the usefulness of this operation. In the follow-up course for PH from 1987 to 2006, 15 patients who developed severe thrombocytopenia(More)
