Infected congenital splenic cyst associated with duodenal duplication cyst and malrotation--a case report

, : Infected congenital splenic cyst associated with duodenal duplication cyst and malrotation--a case report. Journal of Pediatric Surgery 42(12): E21-E22

Congenital splenic cyst is a rare entity. A potential complication of this anomaly is infection. We report on an 18-month-old boy who had Salmonella enterocolitis and 2 weeks later was found to have an infected splenic cyst. At surgery, a duodenal duplication cyst and malrotation of the gut were incidentally found. Infected splenic cysts usually occur in older children or adults. To the best of our knowledge, congenital splenic cyst has not previously been reported in association with other malformations.

Erlotinib and gemcitabine are active in NSCLC and have synergy in other cancers. This study investigated the activity and tolerability of this combination as first-line therapy in ECOG PS 2 patients. Chemotherapy-naïve patients with NSCLC, either...

Drought escape and dehydration avoidance represent alternative strategies for drought adaptation in annual crops. The mechanisms underlying these two strategies are reported to have a negative correlation, suggesting a trade-off. We conducted a qu...
