1/2. color Doppler sonography in the diagnosis of neonatal intrahepatic portosystemic shunts.

    Intrahepatic portosystemic shunts are infrequent in children. We report 3 cases of neonates who presented with jaundice during the first month of life. color Doppler sonography in the first 2 cases showed direct communication between the right portal and hepatic veins. Both infants were asymptomatic, and the shunts disappeared spontaneously. The third case involved several shunts and an aberrant medial portal vein. This patient developed heart failure and died after surgery. color Doppler sonography was useful in the diagnosis and follow-up of the shunts in all 3 cases.

2/2. Double duplication in a nonrotational colon. Study of a case associated with mucinous adenoma.

    Duplications of gastrointestinal tract are unusual anomalies, especially in the colon. We report a case with two colonic duplications in a 20 year old woman who complained of recurrent backache associated with left lower quadrant abdominal pain. Neither physical examination nor laboratory test alterations were detected. Roentgenographic examination showed organic scolinosis, no intestinal gas and a mass with central hyperdensity and thickened wall in the descending colon area on the CT scan. laparotomy was performed in which 22 cm of ascending colon and terminal ileum sited on left side, was excised. Pathological study revealed two unrelated and cystic duplications without communication to intestinal lumen. Their epithelial lining were of colonic or gastric types and showed a mucinous adenoma; the remaining layers were normal except for eosinophilic inflammatory infiltrate with Charcot-Leyden like crystaloids. In conclusion, we present a double spherical colonic duplication type I associated to a mucinous adenoma on a non-rotational ascending colon in a patient with organic scoliosis.
