Diagnosis of colonic duplication can pose a potential problem even for those familiar with gastro-intestinal tract duplications in general but unaware of the condition due to its rarity and its apparently bimodal clinical presentation. In this report of five cases of surgically proven pediatric colonic duplication, we illustrate how the ...

The association of hindgut duplication and anorectal malformation is rare. Published classifications of this association are confusing in respect of terminology. We report a case of blind-ending, Y-shaped tubular duplication of the distal hindgut, associated with an anorectal malformation (rectourethral fistula) affecting the colon proper. Surgical options at time of ...

Ectopic ureter in a duplicated system in men is rare and rarely causes bilateral obstructive symptoms. The tendency of the ureter to dilate more than the caliceal system is unique to neonates and makes upper urinary diversions more challenging. However, alternative percutaneous diversions other than nephrostomy might be beared in ...

BACKGROUND: Pure partial trisomy of chromosome 5q is rare and cases have ranged over the entire region, making it difficult to describe a good phenotypic correlation to the cytogenetic duplication. CASE: We present a 4.5-year-old girl with a de novo direct duplication of chromosome 5q15-q23.2. She has moderate developmental delay ...

Urethral duplication is a rare congenital anomaly, affecting mainly boys. Generally, the duplication develops on the sagittal plane; the accessory urethra may run dorsally or ventrally to the orthotopic one. The embryology of this pathology is still controversial. In the English medical literature, approximately 175 cases have been reported. We ...

Developmental venous anomalies (DVAs) are often associated with intracranial cavernous malformations (CMs). The frequency of this association and the observation of de novo CMs located near a known, preexisting DVA raise speculations as to the possible etiopathogenetic relationship between the two. In this article, the authors review the recent literature ...

Pelger-Huët anomaly is a congenital or acquired abnormality of neutrophil nuclear segmentation. The acquired form may be a result of a clonal myeloid malignancy, such as myelodysplastic syndrome, or may be a secondary nonclonal change related to a variety of underlying causes, including infections and medications. We report a case ...

Double gallbladder is a rare congenital malformation and generally considered a duplication of 1 primordium. We encountered an extremely rare case of double gallbladder of the duodenal type that was considered a duplication of 2 primordia. We were able to diagnose the anomaly preoperatively by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography and spiral ...

Isolated agenesis of the gallbladder is a rare anomaly, often asymptomatic. However, one patient out of four presented with right upper abdominal pain, nausea, and fatty food intolerance. The condition is frequently mistaken with an excluded or sclero-atrophic gallbladder, regardless of the imaging modality used. Consequently, AG often leads to ...
