INTRODUCTION: Appendicular actinomycosis is a rare disease produced by cecal appendix invasion by Actinomyces gender bacteria after a predisposing cause that disrupts mucosal barrier, such as acute appendicitis. The highest frequency appears in adults; however, there are cases in paediatric age described in literature. The aim of this article is to introduce a case of appendicular actinomycosis in a child with atypical presentation and to review the literature. CLINICAL CASE: 10-year-old boy transferred to our hospital due to intraoperative finding at a different centre of a right flank tumor, without identification of cecal appendix...

1p36 deletion syndrome is the most common terminal deletion syndrome, and the genomic regions that contribute to specific 1p36 deletion syndrome-related phenotypes were recently identified. Deletions in the 1p36 region have been documented in various tumor tissues, which indicates correlation between loss of heterozygosity of 1p36 and tumor development, and the existence of tumor suppressors in this region. Therefore, it was suspected that patients with 1p36 deletion syndrome have a higher risk of tumor development; however, only a few child cases of neuroblastoma with 1p36 deletion syndrome have been reported...

Undescended testicle is the most common congenital anomaly among males. Testicular tumor develops in 3-5% of the boys with a complaint of undescended testicle. The clinical presentation of malignant intra-abdominal testicular tumors ranges from asymptomatic cases to acute abdomen. In this study, we present a child with testicular tumor rupture which is observed very rarely. A 16-year-old boy presented 24 hours after the sudden onset of right lower quadrant pain, nausea, vomiting and fever. On physical examination, extensive tenderness in the abdomen and abdominal guarding were found...

AIM: To determine risk factors for early neurologic complications (NCs) after liver transplantation from perspective of recipient, donor, and surgeon. METHODS: In all, 295 adult recipients were enrolled consecutively between August 2001 and February 2014 from a single medical center in Taiwan. Any NC in the first 30 d post-liver transplantation, and perioperative variables from multiple perspectives were collected and analyzed. The main outcome was a 30-d NC. Generalized additive models were used to detect the non-linear effect of continuous variables on outcome, and to determine cut-off values for categorizing risk...

Although previous studies have reported the use of total thoracoscopic hepatectomy (TH) for malignant liver tumors, it is technically impossible to perform intraoperative ultrasonography (IUSO) to exclude intrahepatic metastasis for the whole liver via a thoracic approach. Therefore, total TH may be inappropriate for these patients. We here report the first case of modified TH for a malignant liver tumor in China.The patient was a 26-year-old man with a 10-year HBV infection. Preoperative CT showed a 1.2 cm × 0...

BACKGROUND: Beyond pre-pregnancy BMI, maternal weight change before and during pregnancy may also affect offspring adiposity. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between maternal weight history before and during pregnancy with children's adiposity at 5-6 years. METHODS: In 1069 mother-child dyads from the EDEN Cohort, we examined by linear regression the associations of children's BMI, fat mass and abdominal adiposity at 5-6 years with maternal pre-pregnancy BMI, pre-pregnancy average yearly weight change from age 20 and gestational weight gain...

A three-day-old female child presented to us with abdominal distension and lower limb swelling. On ultrasound examination, there was a cystic mass contiguous with the uterus in the lower abdomen and pelvis which showed fluid- debris level. This mass was causing displacement of the urinary bladder anteriorly. MRI confirmed the findings of ultrasound. A diagnosis of hydrometrocolpos secondary to imperforate hymen was made following physical examination. Neonatal hydrometrocolpos is a rare condition which requires a high index of suspicion for diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Rib osteomyelitis is a rare entity, occurring in approximately 1 % or less of all cases of haematogenous osteomyelitis. Given its rarity and clinical heterogeneity, the diagnosis of rib osteomyelitis can be challenging and requires a high index of suspicion. We present a case of acute osteomyelitis of the rib due to community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), which occurred in an otherwise healthy 3-month-old infant and mimicked an epigastric hernia at first...

Hepatoblastoma is an uncommon malignant liver tumour diagnosed usually during the first three years of life. It presents as abdominal mass with elevated alpha fetoprotein levels. The definite diagnosis requires histopathological confirmation. Although conditions like Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) or Beckwith-Wiedman Syndrome may be associated with hepatoblastomas, storage disorders are uncommonly documented. We describe a rare case of hepatoblastoma with co-existent glycogen storage disease in an infant male who presented with a progressively increasing mass in abdomen along with failure to thrive...

Acinar cell carcinoma is a rare tumour arising from pancreatic acinar cells. Typical radiological patterns associated with it may suggest the unusual diagnosis even before final confirmation by histopathology. We present a case of an 8 year old boy who presented to clinic with symptoms of abdominal pain without associated jaundice or vomiting. Imaging revealed an atypical mass arising from head of the pancreas. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of acinar cell carcinoma. An idea about atypical and rare pancreatic masses is necessary to help direct the diagnosis and guide the pathologist for suspecting atypical pathology...

The UK has a longstanding system of general practice which provides the vast majority of primary care, including that for children. It acts as a 'gatekeeper' to more specialist care. Parents may also use accident and emergency departments as their first point of medical contact for their children. Outcomes in the UK for many conditions in children appear to be worse than in comparable European countries where there is direct access to care by paediatricians. We have therefore looked at pathways to diagnosis and compared outcomes in the childhood kidney cancer, Wilms' tumour, which has been treated in the UK and Germany within the same clinical trial for over a decade...

Genitourinary tuberculosis usually occurs in young adults and the middle-aged and is very uncommon in the paediatric population. It generally presents with haematuria, pyuria, irritative voiding symptoms and flank pain; presentation as a renal mass is highly unusual. We report a two-year-old girl who was referred to the Nil Ratan Sircar Medical College, Kolkata, India, in June 2014 with abdominal pain. Subsequent radiological investigations revealed a left renal hypoechoic mass lesion. A left nephroureterectomy was performed on suspicion of a Wilms' tumour...
