ABSTRACT

Ewing sarcoma/ PNET of the orbit is usually a metastatic tumor. Primary orbital Ewing sarcoma/ PNET is extremely rare with only 17 reported cases as per literature. One such rare case of a primary extraskeletal Ewing sarcoma/PNET of the orbit, which is anĀ  extraordinary site for its occurrence in a 4year old boy, is presented here.

ABSTRACT

Ascariasis is the intestinal parasitic infection caused by Ascaris lumbricoides (roundworm). Its highest prevalence is observed in the tropical and subtropical areas. In contrast to silent forms of this illness or chronic symptomatology, massive infestation in children can lead to serious complications like intestinal obstruction requiring urgent surgical attention. We report a seven year old female child with severe sequelae of intestinal obstruction.

ABSTRACT

Scimitar syndrome is a rare congenital anomaly consisting a part of right pulmonary venous return to the inferior vena cava. There is a clear bimodal presentation of this syndrome with either infantile presentation or a paediatric/adult form. The infantile variant is severe form with significant mortality. The adult form is less severe and may be asymptomatic. The case we are reporting presented with respiratory distress , hypoplasia of the right lung, dextroposition of the heart and absent left kidney.

ABSTRACT

The presence of bifid mandibular canal reported in the literature varies from 0.08% to 0.9%. The mandibular canal which transmits the inferior alveolar nerve which is responsible for the innervations of pulp tissue of all mandibular teeth is a target area for mandibular block technique. Failure to achieve a profound anesthesia during dental extraction is a challenge for the dental practitioner. This case report examines all the possible features about the bifid mandibular canal.

ABSTRACT

A case of double Interior Vena Cave (IVC) where left sided IVC is of the dimensions of normal IVC and the right one is much smaller is reported. Various anomalies of IVC were studied to find out if such a defect is previously recorded. 1 Double IVC, as such, is a rare anomaly .It occurs in 0.2- 2 0.5% of cases . Left sided IVC is reported where right IVC is absent. What makes our case unusual is that both right & left IVC were seen. But, left IVC had proportions & tributaries of normal IVC while, right IVC was much smaller. We did not find such a case reported any where previously.
