Primary Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma of Colon Presenting as Chronic Diarrhea in a 3 Year Old Child - Case Report

[Year:2019] [Month:April-June] [Volume:1] [Number:2] [Pages:5] [Pages No:11 - 15]

Keywords: GI Lymphoma, Chronic Diarrhea

   DOI: 10.5005/jp-journals-11009-0011  |  Open Access |  How to cite  | 


A 3 year old baby boy presented to hospital with a 2 months history of watery diarrhea (8- 10 episodes per day) associated with abdominal pain, weight loss and swelling of face and limbs. Rehydration and electrolytic balance were restored with intravenous fluid therapy along with cover of antibiotics but diarrhea was worsening. Patient was planned for gastroscopy and ileo- colonoscopy with biopsies from duodenum and ileum. Gastroscopy was normal but colonoscopy showed ileal scalloping and transverse colon showed short segment stricture of approx. 5 cms with multiple ulcers. CT imaging showed a structuring mass involving the transverse colon and few adjacent jejunal loops with enlarged lymph nodes. Histopathological examination of the biopsies from transverse colon showed dense lymphoid aggregates. Hence Bone marrow aspiration and IHC panel of markers were advised. BMA was normal but IHC staining revealed Primary Diffuse large B cell Lymphoma of large intestine.

Dysphagia Lusoria due to Aberrant Right Subclavian Artery

[Year:2019] [Month:April-June] [Volume:1] [Number:2] [Pages:3] [Pages No:16 - 18]

Keywords: Dysphagia, Subclavian Artery

   DOI: 10.5005/jp-journals-11009-0012  |  Open Access |  How to cite  | 


Dysphagia Lusoria is dysphagia secondary to an aberrant right subclavian (ARSA) artery that traverses behind esophagus. We present a 11-year-old female complaining of weight loss and dysphagia. The diagnosis was pointed by barium swallow followed by endoscopy and CT angiography confirmed it. The combination of the common carotid origins and the retroesophageal course of the aberrant vessel frequently contribute to symptoms in the absence of an aneurysm of the aberrant vessel. Several surgical techniques for the aberrant vessel have been described, but we did an open ligation and transposition to the right carotid artery.

Aerophagia - An Interesting Cause of Recurrent Abdominal Distension

[Year:2019] [Month:April-June] [Volume:1] [Number:2] [Pages:3] [Pages No:19 - 21]

Keywords: Aerophagia, Abdominal Distension

   DOI: 10.5005/jp-journals-11009-0013  |  Open Access |  How to cite  | 


Functional aerophagia involves excessive air swallowing causing progressive abdominal distension. It can present in children dealing with stress and anxiety. Early recognition and diagnosis of aerophagia is required to avoid unnecessary, expensivediagnostic investigations. Neuro cognitive evaluation and behavior therapy are accepted management strategies.

Fatal Outcome of Perforating Lower Esophageal Button Battery in a Child

[Year:2019] [Month:April-June] [Volume:1] [Number:2] [Pages:3] [Pages No:22 - 24]

Keywords: Button Battery, Perforation

   DOI: 10.5005/jp-journals-11009-0014  |  Open Access |  How to cite  | 


Impacted button battery (BB) in the esophagus can be fatal unless managed emergently. We encountered a 2-year-old male child with respiratory distress from three weeks. Chest-X-ray suggested a radiopaque foreign body, which was confirmed to be esophageal BB during esophagoscopy and subsequently removed. Corrosive nature of BB had perforated the lower esophagus leading to pyopericardium and pyothorax. In spite of appropriate antibiotics and surgical drainage, child died of sepsis. High index of suspicion to identify esophageal BB in cases of unexplained cardio-respiratory symptoms can be helpful in early aggressive intervention.
