Supradiaphragmatic accessory liver: a rare cause of respiratory distress in a neonate


, : Supradiaphragmatic accessory liver: a rare cause of respiratory distress in a neonate. Journal of Pediatric Surgery 38(9): 1413-1414

The authors describe a case of supradiaphragmatic accessory liver seen on prenatal ultrasound examinations, mimicking fetal hydrothorax and causing life-threatening respiratory failure after birth. The accessory liver with a transdiaphragmatic pedicle to the caudate lobe of the normal liver was found at throracotomy after failure to expand the lung by chest drainage. The "hydrothorax" turned out to be multilocular mesothelial cyst collection surrounding the ectopic liver. This is the first report of the development of a thoracic accessory liver followed by obstetric ultrasound examinations.

Recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and their meta-analyses have identified multiple genetic loci that are associated with type 2 diabetes (T2D). Except for variants in the TCF7L2 gene which had a modest effect on diabetic risk, most gen...

Chinese hamster ovary cells expressing the bovine cardiac Na/Ca exchanger were treated with ouabain to increase (Na+)-i and stimulate Ca-2+ influx by Na/Ca exchange. Depletion of cellular ATP inhibited 45Ca uptake by 40% or more and reduced the ha...

An endemic pathogen of St. John's-wort (Hypericum perforatum) identified as Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, was evaluated as a potential mycoherbicide. On St. John's-wort the pathogen caused typical sunken anthracnose lesions that girdle...
