Myocarditis in Under-Five Children with Community-Acquired Pneumonia Using Serum Cardiac Troponin-T and Electrocardiography

Samsudeen Alao, Chinyere Uzodimma, Adebiyi Olowu
Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) kills more under-five (U-5) children in Sub-Saharan Africa than in any other part of the world. Co-existing myocarditis and congestive cardiac failure (CCF) in the setting of CAP could play a crucial role in determining the disease outcome. The aim of the study was to evaluate myocarditis in U-5 children with CAP in the emergency room setting using cardiac troponin-T (cTnT) and electrocardiography (ECG). A hospital based cross-sectional study involving 76 child...

Intussusception Prolapsed through the Anus in Infants: In Regards of 3 Cases

A. Doumbia, M. B. Daou, M. Kouyate, O. Coulibaly, B. Kamate, M. K. Djire, I. Amadou, Y. Coulibaly
Acute intestinal intussusceptions (AII) cause a telescoping of a downstream intestinal segment by the upstream intestinal segment. The diagnosis of IIA is based more on abdominal ultrasound than on the classic clinical triad, made up of paroxysmal abdominal pain crises, vomiting and rectal bleeding. IIA is characterized in our African countries by a diagnostic delay leading to a worsening of the general condition of patients. We report 3 cases of prolapsed intestinal intussusception through the ...

Rare Instance of Scrotal Migration of Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt: A Case Report

Nabil Chettahi, Ayoub Benjelloun Andaloussi, Othmane Alaoui, Abdelhalim Mahmoudi, Khalid Khattala, Youssef Bouabdallah
Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt is used for treating hydrocephalus but it also results in many complications, the most common being hernia and hydrocele. The distal end of the ventriculoperitoneal shunt is placed in the peritoneal cavity to drain the fluid from the ventricles. The catheter has a tendency to be displaced into the scrotum due to the patent processus vaginalis (PPV). It is treated surgically by repositioning the catheter. We present the case of a 5-year-old child who was presented ...

Hennekam syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder that was first described in 1989. It is characterized by congenital lymphoedema of the limbs, genitals, and face; intestinal lymphangiectasia; variable mental retardation; and typical craniofacial dysmorphism. The syndrome is genetically heterogeneous, which explains the variability of the clinical phenotype. We present a case report of a 16-month-old male infant who was born to consanguineous parents. The infant exhibited generalized lymp...
