Vesicoureteric reflux has been associated with paediatric urinary tract infection. Fluoroscopic micturating cystourethrography (MCU) has been the gold standard of diagnostic test for decades; however, it has been criticized owing to its lower detection rate and radiation dose to children. Therefore, new radiation-free reflux imaging modalities have been(More)
Hepatic hematomas are relatively common in fetuses and neonates; most are subcapsular in location. Sometimes their imaging features can be non-specific, so differentiation from other aggressive lesions like hepatoblastoma can be difficult, especially if there is a concurrent high α-fetoprotein level. We report a case of intrahepatic hematoma with a rising(More)

A total of 173 boys aged 10 to 179 months with previous unilateral inguinal herniotomy were called back for follow-up. Clinical and ultrasound examinations of the scrotum were performed. The interval between operation and follow-up was 6 to 123 months (mean 31.68 months). One boy (0.58%) had a more than 50% and 10 (5.8%) had a more than 25% decrease in(More)
Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is rare in children. Its presentation is usually related to hormonal activity of the tumour. We report a case of childhood ACC that presented as an acute abdomen due to tumour rupture. This is the first reported case of a ruptured ACC as a cause of paediatric acute abdomen.
Anatomical variations on venous drainage in varicoceles are under-reported. We report our experience in scrotal antegrade sclerotherapy (SAS) for adolescent varicoceles. Since 2011, 15 consecutive boys with left varicoceles were recruited. Under general anaesthesia, a 5-mm transverse incision was made at scrotal neck, testicular vein was cannulated at(More)
The purpose of this article was to describe the experience of relieving tension pneumomediastinum by a fluoroscopic-guided percutaneous method. We inserted a percutaneous drainage catheter with a Heimlich valve under fluoroscopic guidance to relieve the tension pneumomediastinum in a 2-year-old girl who suffered from dermatomyositis with lung involvement.(More)
Mucopolysaccharidosis VI (Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome) is a very rare inherited lysosomal storage disease. We evaluated the efficacy and safety of weekly infusions of recombinant human arylsulfatase B as enzyme replacement therapy for two patients in whom this condition was advanced. The primary outcome variables were the distance walked in a 6-minute walk(More)
