Intrapericardial teratoma in early infancy produces critically severe cardiorespiratory distress and often results in the death of the infant. A recent patient in our newborn nursery displayed the distinctive combination of cardiorespiratory distress and enlargement of the "cardiothymic" silhouette. The echocardiographic demonstration of pericardial effusion and cardiac displacement suggested the ...

Neoplasms of the nasopharynx are rare in neonates and infants. The most common nasopharyngeal tumors encountered in this age group are teratomata--neoplasms containing multiple heterotopic tissues. Of the four basic histologic types, dermoids are most frequently seen. An unusual case of a true teratoma in a premature infant with severe ...

We report the unusual association of facial palsy and severe hypertension in an infant with coarctation of the aorta. The facial palsy resolved before the hypertension was cured.

Intrapericardial teratoma is a rare, congenital, pedunculated tumor, usually attached to the ascending aorta and associated with massive pericardial effusion, cardiac compression, and severe cardiorespiratory distress in infants and young children. Echocardiography and cardiac cineangiography are diagnostic and should be used promptly. The tumor is generally benign and early surgical ...

Extension of neuroepithelial neoplasms outside the neuraxis, though uncommon, is well known and usually follows surgical intervention. More unusual is the brain tumor that appears beyond the bounds of the central nervous system prior to operative manipulation. Two infants presented with soft tissue masses in the neck that proved to ...

An infant, born to unrelated parents, who had a rugated perineal mass which measured 17 cm in diameter is reported. No external genitalia or anal orifice was identified although the infant voided from a 5 mm crevice on the caudal surface of the mass. The patient died at four weeks ...

The case of an infant with a large nasopharyngeal teratoma is presented. The tumor completely obstructed the airway and necessitated immediate intubation. It was excised the day of birth and the child's postoperative course has been satisfactory. A review of the literature reveals dermoid tumors to be relatively common but ...

Polyhydramnios and premature delivery complicated the pregnancies of three women whose infants were born with renal tumors. In each case the tumor was a mesoblastic nephroma. The liquid of polyhydramnios enhances detection of masses in the fetal abdomen by ultrasound. In the future, mesoblastic nephroma may, therefore, be diagnosed antenatally. ...

Mitral valve replacement for congenital mitral stenosis has been performed infrequently in infants. In all but two previously reported infants, the valve has been replaced with a mechanical prosthesis. The case history of an infant is reported in whom emergency mitral valve replacement was successfully performed with a porcine heterograft ...

The calcification which may follow renal vein thrombosis (RVT) has a virtually diagnostic radiographic pattern. Previous examples have been noted mainly in follow-up examinations of infants with a history of neonatal RVT. The case reported herein, with pathologic confirmation, illustrates that such calcification may be present even on the first ...

A detailed analysis of the angiographic findings with a congenital retrocerebellar arachnoid cyst in an infant is reported. The angiographic features are a huge retrocerebellar extra-axial avascular mass compressing and displacing the fourth ventricle anteriorly, dysgenesis of the cerebellum, a tight posterior fossa and transtentorial upward herniation of the monticulus ...

Immediate operation in infants suffering from severe congestive heart failure and coarctation of the aorta associated with hypoplasia of the distal transverse aortic arch often poses a difficult technical problem. Frequently the anastomosis between the hypoplastic arch and the descending thoracic aorta fails to relieve the gradient across the hypoplastic ...

Several infants with a left suprarenal "cold spot" shown on technetium scintiphotos were also found to have inferior displacement of the left kidney on the urogram. Surgical exploration was considered on the basis of possible adrenal tumor; however, the highly suspicious "lesion" disappeared after gastric deflation, and it was recreated ...

Congenital miline dorsal malformations in infants most commonly represent spina bifida cystica or teratoma. The five patients reported here are a distinct clinicopathologic entity. They presented at birth with a dorsal midline mass, with no neurologic impairment, and no hydrocephalus developed subsequently. The lesions were removed in all infants without ...

Despite the widespread recognition of coartation of the aorta there are still many patients in whome the diagnosis is not made. A simple clinical test which is useful in making the diagnosis in infants and adults, is described. It depends upon the differential color changes between fingers and toes after ...

Three cases of sacrococcygeal teratoma of the neonate occurred during a two-year period in which approximately 6,000 live births occurred in our hospital. Two infants were delivered vaginally and one by cesarean section. One infant underwent immediate surgery and survived, whereas the other two were in too poor condition to ...

Preoperative B-mode ultrasonography was performed on 7 infants who subsequently were surgically proved to have multicystic kidney disease. Five of the 7 showed a characteristic pattern consisting of a predominantly cystic mass containing septa which divided it into cysts of varying sizes. It is concluded that ultrasound is a reliable ...

Cold nonperfusional (flushing and ice storage) with Collins or Sacks solution and perfusional preservation with cryoprecipitated plasma or albumin were compared in dog kidneys. All these methods were effective in achieving excellent 48-hour preservation of fresh kidneys. After exposure to 20 minutes of ischemia at 37 C, neither of the ...

The clinical and radiologic findings in two infants are presented, one with unilateral hydrometrocolpos and ipsilateral renal agenesis or hypoplasia and the other with ureteral duplication with one of the ureters opening into a cystically dilated seminal vesicle. The excretory urograms of both infants suggested ectopic ureterocele. Further radiologic investigation, ...

A case of an eighteen-month-old-infant who died in narcosis following an aortic obstruction by myxomatous tumour of the left ventricle is reported. Since his birth the infant exhibited cyanosis fits and cerebral manifestations due to an intermittent occlusion of the aorta. The result of the post-mortem examination pleads for including ...

Fetus-in-fetu is an unusual cause of retroperitoneal abdominal mass in infants, which most likely arises from inclusion of a monozygotic, diamniotic twin. This entity is distinguished from teratoma by its embryological origin, its unusual location in the retroperitoneal space, its invariable benignity, and by the presence of vertebral organization with ...

Three young infants who had severe gastroenteritis developed radiological and histological features of renal tubular necrosis. Characteristically the excretion urogram showed renal enlargement with prolonged and heavy opacification of the renal parenchyma and a pronounced increase in density of the pyramids. Subsequent radiological studies showed extensive papillary necrosis. Though these ...

An infant of four months with clinical evidence of a cystic tumour in the upper and anterior mediastinum died at the age of nine months. At autopsy the tumour was found to be a teratoma. The occurrence of such tumours in children is briefly discussed with a full clinical and ...
