Case of intraperitoneal sepsis secondary to rupture of the appendix on the background of pseudomyxoma peritonei

Conclusion Intraperitoneal sepsis secondary to appendiceal rupture is rare. Hence surgeons may face an emergency of intraperitoneal sepsis during waiting period of planned CRS or as a primary presentation. With combined therapy of CRS and PIC, the prognosis of mucinous appendiceal adenoma is excellent.

Authors: Senbanjo I, Akinola A, Kumolu-Johnson T, Igbekoyi O, Oshikoya K Abstract Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is rare in sub-Saharan Africa. Five cases in Nigerian children are presented to highlight the occurrence, pattern of clinical presentation and management challenges. The patients were identified following a retrospective review of all diagnosed cases of IBD between 1 January 2011 and 31 December 2018 seen at the Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition Unit of Lagos State University Teaching Hospital. The median age (range) was 9 (7-13) years. Three cases were diagnosed because bloody diar...

Case Report: A 58-year-old female presented with a 4-day history of lower abdominal pain, loss of appetite and diarrhoea. Her past medical history included a partial salpingectomy, total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and abdominal sacrocolpoplexy. On examination, she was tender across the lower abdomen, with voluntary guarding. Her blood results showed elevated inflammatory markers. Being treated conservatively for presumed acute diverticulitis, she progressed to develop vomiting, and abdominal computed tomography (CT) showed findings consistent with small bowel obstruction with a transition po...

Introduction Lassa fever (LF) is a severe acute viral hemorrhagic illness caused by a virus belonging to the family Arenaviridae.1,2 The disease was first discovered in Sierra Leone in the 1950s, but the aetiological agent was first isolated after an outbreak of the disease in a village called Lassa in Borno State, Nigeria claiming the lives of two foreign missionary nurses in 1969.3 The virus exhibits persistent, asymptomatic infection, with profuse urinary virus excretion in Mastomys natalensis rodents, which serve as the natural reservoir.1,2 The virus is shed in their excreta (urine and faeces) of the rodent which can...

We reported a case of amoebic liver abscess (ALA) in a 6-year-old Malaysian boy who presented with fever, lethargy, diarrhoea and right hypochondriac pain. On admission he was diagnosed with perforated acute appendicitis and a laparotomy was done. After surgery he developed acute respiratory distress. Ultrasonography, chest X-Ray and CT scan revealed two ALAs in the posterior segment of right lobe of liver, pleural effusion and collapsed consolidation of lungs bilaterally. Percutaneous liver abscesses drainage was done and intravenous Metronidazole was started. PCR carried out on the pus from the abscess was positive for E...
