Traumas of the foetus caused by stabbings are rare but actually life-threatening for both the foetus and the mother. We report a case of penetrating chest wound on a baby taken from the obstetrics unit to the paediatric surgical department. His mother was assaulted by his father, a mentally sick person with no appropriate follow-up. The foetus did not show any sign of vital distress. Surgical exploration of the wound has revealed a section of the 10 th rib, a laceration of the pleura and a tearing of the diaphragm...

Syringocele or dilatation of the duct of the bulbo-urethral (Cowper's) gland is usually of congenital origin but can be acquired. It is a very rare deformity, <10 cases have been reported in literature. The main objective is to describe an additional case of syringocele of Cowper's glands and review the literature. An 18-month-old infant presented with a history of acute urinary retention 3 days after birth and a cystostomy was done. Voiding cystourethrogram was normal and cystourethroscopy showed a syringocele...

Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is the most common congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract. Most often is asymptomatic but it may give a number of complications including gastrointestinal bleeding, obstruction and inflammation. Axial torsion and gangrene of MD are exceptional. The correct diagnosis of MD could only be made during surgery. Early surgery is important to reduce morbidity, especially perforation. Laparoscopy aided in the diagnosis and adequate treatment. We herein describe the case of a 4-year-old boy with axial torsion of MD...

UNLABELLED: Mixed gonadal dysgenesis is characterised by unilateral chromosomal abnormality, which is probably the result of anaphase lag during mitosis. The 45, XO/46, XY karyotype is the most common form of mosaicism involving the Y chromosome. It is a rare clinical entity with a worldwide incidence of 1.5/10,000 live births. Its epidemiology in Sub-Saharan Africa is not known. This study reports experience in the management of 3 cases at the Yaounde Gynecologic-Obstetric and Paediatric Hospital...

BACKGROUND: This was a comparative randomised study to find out the value of using loupe magnification and methylene blue dye in identification of the thyroglossal duct and to compare between them. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty-two patients who presented with infrahyoid thyroglossal duct cyst were subjected to excision of the cyst with two methods for identification of thyroglossal duct track during the operation. Data were anlysed for identification of multiple tracts, the tract relation to the hyoid bone, incidence of complications and operative time...

BACKGROUND: Gynecomastia is defined as benign proliferation of male breast glandular tissue. To date, the pathophysiology of adolescent gynecomastia (AG) remains unclear. Kisspeptin is a polypeptide that plays an important role in the regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal hormonal axis. In this study, we investigated whether there is a relationship between kisspeptin and AG. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study included 40 males between 9 and 18 years of age diagnosed with gynecomastia...

BACKGROUND: Stool colour assessment is a screening method for biliary tract obstruction in infants. This study is aimed to be a proof of concept work of digital photograph image analysis of stool colour compared to colour grading by a colour card, and the stool bilirubin level test. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The total bilirubin (TB) level contents in stool samples from 17 infants aged less than 1 year, seven with confirmed cholestatic jaundice and ten healthy subjects was measured, and outcome correlated with the physical colour of the stool...

BACKGROUND: The skeletal changes in McCune-Albright disease are usually severe because of the polyostotic form of the disease. Trendelenberg gait and limited mobility are the most common presenting features. The constellation of Café-au lait spots and polyostotic bone involvement is commonly referred to as McCune-Albright's syndrome (MAS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: One boy and 4 girls (7-16 years) were sought in our departments from 1998 to 2012. Limb length discrepancy was the main clinical presentation...

BACKGROUND: Neonatal pneumoperitoneum is attributed, in most of the reported cases, to necrotising enterocolitis (NEC). There are also other causes leading to free intraperitoneal air. The aim of this study is to describe the clinical spectrum, causes, management and outcome of neonates admitted with pneumoperitoneum in the paediatric surgery unit of a university hospital. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: This retrospective study included neonates having radiographic evidences of pneumoperitoneum from 2012 to the end of 2014...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to evaluate the outcomes of initial surgical procedures for oesophageal atresia at our institution. Primary repair of oesophageal atresia at our centre was perceived to be associated with a high mortality rate. In view of this, almost all patients seen since January 2014 were offered initial surgery for staged repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of records of infants with oesophageal atresia seen at the centre from January 2007 to December 2014 was used in this study...

BACKGROUND: In preterm infants, immediate complications of surgical closure of a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) are often serious and due to haemorrhage or ligation of incorrect structures. The aim of this study was to measure blood pressure (BP) changes during ligation and hence introduce a novel physiological marker to alert surgeons to the ligation of incorrect structures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study included 146 preterm babies (≤35 weeks of gestation) who underwent surgical PDA closure of a left-to-right unidirectional PDA between June 2006 and December 2015...

The aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) is a benign tumour of children and young adults. It represents approximately 1-2% of all bone tumours. The ABC may develop on all skeletal bones, but the proximal end of the femur is the most common location. The authors report a ABC femoral neck in a child of 13 years. This location is pretty special. Indeed, the fragility of the femoral neck due partly to the pathology itself and secondarily curettage requires a judicious attitude surgical (excisional curettage + bone graft + screw) to prevent the risk of high local recurrence and pathological fracture...

Laparoscopic adrenalectomy has become a common alternative to open surgery for the resection of adrenal lesions in adults: The advantages are to provide better exposure of the adrenal gland, diminish soft tissue dissection, decrease morbidity and postoperative pain; however, reporting on the laparoscopic adrenalectomy in paediatric patients has been limited. We present two cases of laparoscopic adrenalectomy performed at our institution in two children, for left adrenal neuroblastoma in a first patient with opsomyoclonus syndrome, and for a right incidentaloma in the second case...

Intestinal volvulus on mesenteric cysticum lymphangioma (CL) is rare in children. The clinical picture is not very suggestive. We report a case of intestinal volvulus on CL in a 7-year-old girl after an abdominal trauma. Resection and anastomosis were made. The confirmation diagnosis was done by anatomopathological examination. Early diagnosis of intra-abdominal CL will allow avoiding complication.

BACKGROUND: Thoracolumbar kyphosis has been considered as the first presenting deformity and is often a key diagnostic clue noted in children with mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) type IV (Morquio's syndrome). However, we observed that the progressive irregularities of the epiphyses of the long bones were the most prominent skeletal pathology, causing effectively the development of diverse forms of lower limbs deformities with extreme variation in age of onset. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ten patients (seven children and three adults) with an average age of 15 years have been enrolled in this study...

BACKGROUND: How to manage a late diagnosed Hirschsprung's disease (HD) and how to avoid calibre discrepancy? SUBJECTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study of all patients diagnosed with HD over 2 years in our hospital from January 2009 to December 2012. Data were analysed for clinical presentations, investigations, surgical procedures and post-operative outcome. RESULTS: Fifteen patients, operated by one single surgeon, were included in this study...

BACKGROUND: It has been generally observed that children achieve better convalescence in the home environment especially if discharged same day after surgery. This is probably due to the fact that children generally tend to feel more at ease in the home environment than in the hospital setting. Only few tertiary health institutions provide routine day-case surgery for paediatric neurosurgical patients in our sub-region. OBJECTIVE: To review the pattern and practice of paediatric neurosurgical day-cases at our hospital...
