The primary pancreatic hydatid (echinococcal) cyst is extremely rare with a reported incidence of <1%. Owing to its rareness and a considerable overlap of imaging features, a preoperative diagnosis is usually difficult. The dilemma in confirming this benign diagnosis has often questioned the extent of radical pancreatic resection. The involvement of pancreatic duct (cystopancreatic duct fistula) further complicates the management of such cystic lesions. In this report, we present a case of isolated hydatid cyst of the pancreatic body and tail communicating with the pancreatic duct...

Very few case reports of pure squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of stomach are available in the world literature. The exact pathology of this uncommon carcinoma in stomach remains unknown. This is an additional case report of SCC in an elderly female arising in the gastric antrum. She underwent distal gastrectomy, gastrojejunostomy and jejunojejunostomy. The histopathology was reported as SCC of stomach without any adenocarcinomatous component. She had no other source of extra gastric primary SCC. After surgery, the patient was advised adjuvant chemotherapy...

BACKGROUND: The most important step in bone graft management is soft tissue coverage. Dehiscence of the wound leads to graft exposure and subsequent problems. PURPOSE: This study introduces an axial pattern flap for bone graft coverage in anterior maxilla. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Use of Anterior Palatal Island Advancement Flap is presented by the authors. It is a mucoperiosteal flap with axial pattern blood supply, based on nasopalatine artery...

INTRODUCTION: Routinely postoperative nasogastric decompression was done until the nasogastric drainage is minimal, reoccurrence of bowel sounds and passing flatus. But prolonged nasogastric intubation is associated with complications like basal atelectasis due to poor cough reflux, loss of electrolytes and increased patient morbidity. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To study the need for routine use of nasogastric tube post operatively in bowel surgeries with reference to (1) Return of bowel movements (2) Compare the incidence of complications (3) Duration of hospital stay...

Reverse sural artery fasciocutaneous flap has become a workhorse for the reconstruction of distal leg soft tissue defects. When its use is not feasible, perforator-based propeller flap offers a better, easier, faster, and cheaper alternative to free flap. We present our experience with two men both aged 34 years who sustained Gustilo 3B injuries from gunshot. The donor area for reversed sural artery flap was involved in the injuries. They had early debridement, external fixation, and wound coverage with perforator-based propeller flaps...

Rapid buildup of gas within the cranial vault can result in a life-threatening condition known as "tension pneumocephalus," necessitating immediate surgical intervention. Nitrous oxide (N2O), a commonly used inhaled anesthetic, is associated with the development of tension pneumocephalus and its role in neurosurgical procedures has been debated in the literature. We present a case of tension pneumocephalus with preexisting pneumocephalus secondary to the usage of N2O as an inhaled anesthetic. Included is a literature review of studies discussing the role of N2O in the development of tension pneumocephalus...

Schwannomas are benign, rare peripheral nerve sheath tumors that occur in the head and neck region. Some physicians opt to closely observe cases of schwannoma of the neck on an outpatient basis rather than to perform radical surgery. However, there is a possibility, albeit rare, of malignant transformation of a benign schwannoma. Here, we are reporting the first case from the Indian subcontinent which was transformed into the angiosarcoma from benign vagal schwannoma over a long period. A 47-year-old male patient complaining of left sided neck swelling since last 12 years, swelling was insidious in onset, gradually progressive very slowly...

Female urethral anomalies such as epispadias and hypospadias have been rarely reported in the literature. Clinical diagnosis of female urethral anomalies is significant for management. Diagnosis may be missed leading to mismanagement of the clinical condition. Herein, we report a case of female epispadias and hypospadias managed by us at Tertiary Care Center.

A 49-year-old woman with medical history of polymyalgia rheumatica presented with 3 weeks history of epigastric pain worse after meal. Gallstones, peptic ulcer, bowel ischemia, bowel obstruction, gastroesophageal reflux disease, chest pathology, etc., were excluded from the study. Computerized tomography showed a short stenotic segment at coeliac trunk with poststenotic dilatation of 8 mm. Ultrasound scan showed peak velocity of 326 cm/s at the coeliac artery. Diagnosis of median arcuate ligament syndrome was made...

Cleft lip and palate is one of the most common craniofacial anomalies of humans. Intraoral impression making is the first clinical step in the fabrication of feeding appliance for infants with oro-nasal communication. It is difficult to control the flow of the impression material in the cleft area and undercuts in a child patient. This clinical report presents a simple and safe impression technique for maxillary impression making in neonates and infants with cleft palate. A gauze piece was used to confine the impression material during functional movements of sucking while impression making in an awake child to avoid the risk of aspiration or swallowing...

Persistent Mullerian duct syndrome (PMDS) is a rare form of male pseudohermaphroditism characterized by the presence of Mullerian duct structures in a normal male with 46, XY karyotype. Transverse testicular ectopia (TTE) is rare form of testicular ectopia in which two testes are located on one inguinal side. The opposite scrotum is empty. PMDS with TTE is rare. We report a case of PMDS with TTE discovered during surgery for a right inguinal hernia in a 25-year-old male.

Urethral duplication (UD) in females is a rare congenital anomaly and requires a high degree of clinical suspicion for diagnosis. The preoperative evaluation requires thorough investigations to delineate anatomy which is imperative for surgical reconstruction to provide excellent functional and cosmetic outcome. We describe the successful management of a 6-year-old girl with UD (presented as ambiguous genitalia and urinary incontinence) along with a review of pertinent literature.

With the inventions of faster cars and even more faster motorbikes there is a worldwide increase in road traffic accidents, which has increased the incidence of blunt abdominal trauma but still duodenal injury following a blunt abdominal trauma is uncommon and can pose a formidable challenge to the surgeon and failure to manage it properly can result in devastating results. It may typically occur in isolation or with pancreatic injury. Here, we report a case of an isolated transection of the third part of the duodenum with normal pancreas following a blunt abdominal trauma...

Thymoma represents <1% of all mediastinal tumors in children. Less than 50 cases of pediatric thymoma are reported in the literature. Thymomas are considered to be highly aggressive in pediatric patients, especially when age is <10 years. Paraneoplastic syndromes, of which around 70% are myasthenia gravis, correlate with poor prognosis. In this article, we report a case of a thymoma in an 8-year-old boy, who had favorable histopathology (Masaoka stage I, WHO type B2), despite the presence of young age and necrosis along with absence of myasthenia gravis...

Aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA) is a rare anomaly, in which the right subclavian artery arises directly from the aortic arch instead of originating from the brachiocephalic artery. This anomaly should be taken into consideration during surgical procedures around esophagus, such as esophagectomy. Any unintentional injury of this artery during surgical procedures could be extremely life threatening. A 56-year-old woman presented with dysphagia, with concurrent aberrant subclavian artery and esophageal cancer...
