The authors present a case of colonic monoblastic sarcoma, previously treated for other digestive abnormalities (malabsorbtion, Hirschprung's disease). Important similitudes with immunoproliferative small intestinal disease (IPSID) lymphoma were demonstrated for this patient (male, 2-year-old). His main admission complaints were failure to thrive, recurrent episodes of enterocolitis and malabsorbtion syndrome. Some particularities of this case are the young age and the extremely rapid development of the malignant disease in a patient with no previous signs of acute non-lymphoblastic leukemia...

One of the severe cases was community-acquired. Two patients had underlying diseases (Hirschprung disease, Down syndrome) and also tested positive for enteric viruses (rotavirus, calicivirus).

We treated 65 children with proven Hirschprung's disease between 1970-1992. After definitive surgery, 35 were over 10 years of age and 13 were over 18. The male:female ratio was 4:1. All but 3 were born full-term. 44% were of Bedouin origin, with a higher prevalence in 3 families of 2 tribes. 38 (58%) were diagnosed in the neonatal period: by barium enema and rectal muscle biopsy in 42 (65%), and by barium enema alone in 23 (35%). In the latter the diagnosis was verified by intra-operative biopsy. Severe constipation, intestinal obstruction or enterocolitis were the presenting features...
