[Ab] Abstract:INTRODUCTION: Gastrointestinal duplication cyst is a congenital rare disease that may occur in any region from mouth to anus. Among them, gastric duplication cysts are very rare. CASE REPORT: Here we report A 23-year-old Japanese man who visited our hospital to evaluate an abdominal tumor. Abdominal computed tomography showed a well-circumscribed homogenous low-density mass measuring 6.2 × 6.0 cm between the pancreatic tail and the upper posterior wall on the gastric greater curvature, and the mass seemed to originate from the pancreatic tail. We found intraoperatively that the mass adhered to the stomach and pancreatic tail strongly, so we performed laparoscopic partial gastrectomy and spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy. Pathological findings showed that the lining epithelium of the cystic mass consisted of the gastric foveolar epithelium with fundic glands. Furthermore, the pancreatic tissue of the pancreatic tail and the muscular layer of the cystic mass were intermingled. DISCUSSION: GDCs are usually diagnosed at a younger age and in adults, they are very rare. Therefore, surgical resection is considered to be the best treatment due to the difficulty of diagnosis, and also that it mimics a pancreatic cystic tumor, and malignant transformation. Complete resection of the cyst is the ideal technique and laparoscopic surgery should be selected whenever possible. CONCLUSION: We experienced a case of GDC continuous to both stomach and pancreatic tail. Laparoscopic surgery is safety and useful even if GDC is continuous with both the stomach and the pancreas.

[Ab] Abstract:INTRODUCTION: A pelvic lymphocele is a collection of lymphatic fluid that develops after extensive lymphadenectomies in surgeries such as urological malignancies or renal transplantation. Pelvic lymphoceles may cause complications such as fever, abdominal pain, leg swelling, genital swelling and flank pain. This report summarizes the management of a pelvic lymphocele after open radical retropubic prostatectomy with bilateral lymphadenectomy. PRESENTATION OF CASE: Herein, we present a case in which a pelvic lymphocele developed seven months post-radical open retropubic prostatectomy and through this patient we discussed the lymphocele following radical prostatectomy. The pelvic lymphocele occurred along the sciatic nerve from the sciatica foramen to the intergluteal muscles. The patient was treated with three drainage catheters. This localization is an atypical and unusual for lymphocele after radical retropubic prostatectomy. DISCUSSION: Lymphocele formation that leads to major complications after radical prostatectomy is rare. Lymphocele formation is most commonly seen in the early postoperative period, but it should be considered in patients with fever, abdominal pain or leg swelling during the late postoperative period. Lymphocele formation was the most common cause of hospital readmission after radical prostatectomy. CONCLUSION: Lymphocele formation can be seen in atypical regions and can lead to unexpected complications after radical prostatectomy. Therefore, it should be brought to mind when complaints such as fever and lower extremity swelling occurred in patients underwent extensive lymph node dissection. Surgical treatment options are available, but percutaneous interventions can also be used.

[Ab] Abstract:INTRODUCTION: Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GISTs) are a rare slow growing malignancy, accounting for less than 1% of all gastrointestinal (GI) tract tumors. These tumors are usually discovered incidentally by endoscopy, surgery or radiology. However on occasions they may present with significant symptoms including GI blood loss. This case report discusses an atypical presentation of a GIST in a 57-year-old female. CASE PRESENTATION: A 57-year-old woman presented to the emergency department following one episode of melena. This occurred on a background of two previous presentations with melena over a 10-year period. She had a preceding surgery for a Meckel's Diverticulum. She was admitted for monitoring and investigation. An emergency upper endoscopy showed no upper gastrointestinal pathology to account for the bleeding. Her condition deteriorated with development of hypovolemic shock, requiring blood transfusion. An urgent CT angiogram identified a large mass in the distal ileum. The patient underwent an emergency laparotomy, where a 9.1 cm tumor located on the distal one-third of the ileum was resected. Histopathology confirmed the mass was a GIST. The patient had a successful post-operative period and subsequent treatment with Imatinib. DISCUSSION: The majority of GISTs are found incidentally. This case report describes an unusual presentation of a GIST in which the tumor bled into the intestinal lumen causing significant melena and life threatening hemorrhage. CONCLUSION: We conclude that GIST should be considered as a possible differential in rare cases of GI bleeding where more common causes have been ruled out.

[Ab] Abstract:INTRODUCTION: Ureterocele is a cystic dilatation of the lower part of the ureter. It is a congenital anomaly that is associated with other anomalies such as a duplicated system, and other diseases. It poses a great challenge owing to its numerous types and clinical presentations. Its incidence is 1 in every 4000 individuals. One of its presentations in the adult population is the presence of a stone, usually a solitary stone, inside the ureterocele. CASE PRESENTATION: We are reporting a case of an adult ureterocele complicated by a large calculus; managed endoscopically with transurethral deroofing of the ureterocele followed by cystolitholapaxy. A literature review was also conducted. DISCUSSION: The pathogenesis of ureteroceles is not well understood, however many proposed mechanisms exist with the incomplete dissolution of chwalla membrane being the most accepted one. The type of ureterocele and age at presentation will help guide the appropriate investigation and management, nevertheless certain goals of treatment should apply to all cases. Adult ureterocele is usually clinically silent but it may co-exist with other conditions such as a ureteral calculus and in these conditions it can be managed endoscopically. CONCLUSION: Ureteroceles complicated by stones can be effectively managed with endoscopic resection or incision of the ureterocele coupled with stone removal, however long term follow up is required to monitor for hydronephrosis and iatrogenic vesicoureteric reflux.

[Ab] Abstract:PURPOSE: The Ketogenic Diet (KD) is a well-established treatment for epilepsy in children and adults. We describe our 10-year KD experience in children less than two years of age diagnosed with medically refractory epilepsy. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective case-note review of infants managed with KD at our centre between 2006 and 2016. RESULTS: Twenty-nine children between 2½ weeks and 23 months of age were identified, with mixed epilepsy aetiologies. Ninety-three percent had daily seizures and 82% were on two or more anti-epilepsy drugs (AEDs) at the time of KD commencement. KD was continued for more than four weeks in 86%. Based on a combination of parental reports, hospital observations and seizure diaries, two of 29 became seizure free, seven demonstrated >50% seizure reduction, and eight showed a decrease in seizure intensity/frequency. No adverse effects were observed in 45% patients, and dietary therapy was stopped in only two because of poor tolerability. CONCLUSION: We conclude that KD can be utilised and is generally well tolerated in infants with severe epilepsies. In addition, our experience suggests efficacy with improved seizure frequency/severity in around 50% without adverse effects on developmental outcome.

[Ab] Abstract:In 2015, 523 reports of suspected child abuse and neglect (CAN) were brought to the attention of the Confidential Center of Child Abuse and Neglect (CCCAN) of Brussels. Around 38% of these reports came from school personnel. This study investigated which factors affect the recognition of CAN by school personnel of Dutch-speaking primary education in Brussels and their intervention need. Two hundred seventy-nine staff members of 16 schools professionally working with children, filled in a Questionnaire Assessment of Situations of CAN. The instrument consists of 24 vignettes describing CAN. Respondents were asked questions regarding recognition and intervention need about each vignette. Detection, severity assessment, the need for professional help, the need for referral to a CCCAN and the need to involve judicial authorities were mainly associated with case characteristics. Although most situations of CAN were detected, situations of emotional abuse were less often recognized. Situations involving non-Western victims were considered to be more severe and the perceived need for involvement of professional help, CCCAN and judicial authorities was larger. Ethnic stereotypes affect the actions undertaken in case of CAN. Awareness of these reactions may result in equal treatment for all victims. Staff characteristics were little associated with detection and intervention need.

[Ti] Title:Neurological Deterioration Due to Brain Sag Following Bilateral Craniotomy for Subdural Hematoma Evacuation.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Intracranial hypotension from cerebrospinal fluid hypovolemia resulting in cerebral herniation is a rare but known complication that can occur following neurosurgical procedures, usually encountered in correlation with perioperative placement of a lumbar subarachnoid drain. Decrease in CSF volume resulting in loss of buoyancy results in downward herniation of the brain without contributing mass effect, causing a phenomenon known as 'brain sag.' Unreported previously is brain sag occurring without concomitant occult CSF leak or lumbar drainage. CASE DESCRIPTION: This case report describes a patient who underwent bilateral craniotomies for subacute on chronic subdural hematomas with successful decompression, but suffered from an acute neurological deterioration secondary to brain sag. Despite an initial improvement in neurological exam, he subsequently exhibited a progressive neurologic deterioration with evidence of cerebral herniation on neuroimaging, without evidence of continued mass effect on the brain parenchyma. After a diagnosis of 'brain sag' was determined based on imaging criteria, the patient was placed in a flat position which resulted in a rapid improvement in neurological exam without any further intervention. CONCLUSIONS: This case is unique from previous reports of intracranial hypotension following craniotomy in that the symptoms were completely reversed with positioning alone, without any evidence of active or occult CSF drainage. This report emphasizes that the diagnosis of brain sag should be taken into consideration when there is an unknown reason for neurologic decline after craniotomy, particularly bilateral craniotomies, if the imaging indicates herniation with imaging findings consistent with intracranial hypotension, without evidence of overlying mass effect.

[Ab] Abstract:Gallbladder agenesis is a rare congenital anomaly. This study aimed to highlight the epidemiological aspects of this condition as well as the peculiarities of its diagnostic and therapeutic management through three case reports. Two adults were admitted to Hospital with hepatic colics and dyspepsia. Ultrasound showed multilithiasic scleroatrophic vesicle. In one of the two patients, CT scan results showed a stone at the level of scleroatrophic vesicle. These two patients were wrongly operated for vesicular lithiasis by using conventional method. The absence of gallbladder was detected during surgery. In order to confirm post-operative diagnosis, the first patient underwent biliary MRI. The other patient was lost to follow-up. The third patient was a 13-year old child hospitalized with acute pancreatitis. Vesicular agenesis was suspected based on its scannographic aspect and then confirmed using biliary MRI. This patient didn't underwent surgery.

[Ab] Abstract:Celiac disease (CD) is an autoimmune disease affecting multiple organs. It often presents as gastrointestinal manifestations associated with malabsorption. However, serosa involvement uncommonly reveals this enteropathy, making the diagnosis difficult. We here report the case of JA, aged 63 years, admitted to hospital to detect the cause of malabsorption syndrome associated with polyserositis signs including pleurisy, pericarditis, ascites and hydrocephalus. The diagnosis of CD was based on endoscopic signs without serology tests. Patient's evolution was partially favorable, due to lack of compliance with a gluten-free diet. Our study reports the first case of CD revealed by polyserositis. CD should be suspected in patients with malabsorption syndrome, in the absence of evocative signs.

[Ab] Abstract:Diffuse angiomatosis or Bean's syndrome is a rare disease characterized by venous malformations mainly involving the skin and the digestive tract which can result in hemorrhage of variable severity. This study reports the case of two children aged 5 and 9 and a half years respectively with diffuse angiomatosis who had been treated in the Department of Emergency Paediatric Surgery over the years. The diagnosis was based on rectal bleeding and/or melenas causing severe anemia requiring regular transfusions in both patients as well as skin angiomas occurrence at the level of the limbs. Radiological evaluation showed the presence of multiple lesions at the level of the jejunum and ileum consistent with small intestinal angiomatosis in the child aged 9 and a half years. It didn't show abdominal lesions in the child aged 5 years. The two patients were admitted to the operating block. Angiomas were surgically individualized. Some of them were actively bleeding. Enterotomy was performed. Postoperative sequelae was marked by the stop of the bleedings. This study aims to update the current understanding of this rare pathology as well as the benefit of surgical treatment in controlling the complications caused by this pathology and in reducing the frequency of transfusions.
