1/4. Pyloric atresia: an attempt at anatomic pyloric sphincter reconstruction.

    BACKGROUND: The standard method of surgical correction of pyloric atresia is gastro-duodenostomy. The authors report a case of pyloric atresia associated with junctional epidermolysis bullosa, treated with a new technique of pyloric sphincter reconstruction by gastric and duodenal mucosa cul-de-sacs advancement and end-to-end anastomosis. methods: The patient was a premature 2,100-g baby girl. X-ray showed gastric dilatation suggesting a congenital gastric obstruction. At surgery a pyloric atresia was found, with the appearance of a well-vascularized solid cord about 1.5 cm long. By longitudinal pyloromyotomy the cul-de-sacs of gastric and duodenal mucosa were reached and then isolated in the respective gastric and duodenal sides to obtain better mobilization. The mucosal cul-de-sacs, thus mobilized, were advanced easily into the pyloric canal, opened longitudinally, and were sutured together using end-to-end anastomosis. The longitudinal pyloromyotomy then was closed diagonally above the reconstructed pyloric neocanal. RESULTS: The postoperative course was uneventful: oral feeding was started on the 11th postoperative day. At 4 year follow-up the child was well; no gastrointestinal disorders were present, confirmed by x-ray barium meal and by HIDA technetium Tc 99m hepatic scintiscan, which excluded any bilious duodeno-gastric reflux. CONCLUSION: This technique of pyloric sphincter reconstruction allows preservation of the pyloric sphincter, whose sphincter muscular layer, although hypoplastic, is present in cases of pyloric atresia.

2/4. Double gastric outlet obstruction with epidermolysis bullosa in a neonate.

    We report a 2-day-old baby who had double gastric outlet obstruction, rectovaginal fistula and associated epidermolysis bullosa. She recovered after excision of diaphragms, pyloroplasty and pelvic colostomy.

3/4. gastric outlet obstruction and gastric infarct in junctional epidermolysis bullosa.

    A newborn boy had junctional epidermolysis bullosa, duodenal obstruction, and gastric infarction, a newly described combination that extends the spectrum of gastrointestinal findings associated with junctional epidermolysis bullosa. The infant underwent feeding jejunostomy, but died 16 days after birth. This report emphasizes the need for gastrointestinal assessment in any neonate suspected of having epidermolysis bullosa, especially if the pregnancy was complicated by polyhydramnios.

4/4. gastric outlet obstruction and epidermolysis bullosa.

    We describe a case of pyloric atresia coexisting with epidermolysis bullosa, almost certainly of the junctional type. The coexistence of pyloric atresia and junctional epidermolysis bullosa (PA-JEB syndrome) has been repeatedly observed. This syndrome has several clinical features that distinguish it from Herlitz junctional epidermolysis bullosa (JEB). These include a lack of prominent granulation tissue formation and increased frequencies of genitourinary tract involvement and ear anomalies. Aplasia cutis congenita is sometimes present; esophageal atresia is uncommonly present. In all 12 patients examined to date, normal basement membrane zone expression of laminin-5 biochemically distinguishes PA-JEB syndrome from Herlitz JEB. Mutations in the beta 4 integrin gene have been observed in one patient with PA-JEB syndrome. Thus there are both clinical and biochemical reasons to separate the PA-JEB syndrome from Herlitz JEB. This is the second known case of papillary hyperplasia of the amnion to be seen in any setting. The other was a case of JEB without pyloric atresia.
