Vidyanand DeshpandeJournal of Indian Association of Pediatric Surgeons 2020 25(3):182-183 Diphallia is a rare congenital anomaly with the incidence of 1 in 5–6 million live births. We are reporting a case of complete diphallia associated with accessory scrotum and undescended testis in a 2-year-old boy. We did amputation of the left phallus, urethral end-to-side anastomosis between the spatulated end of proximal left penile urethra and side of proximal part of right penile urethra, excision of accessory scrotum, and left-sided orchidopexy. Avoiding dissection in the posterior urethra leads to an acceptable outcome. ...

We present a case of 14-year-old male patient with swelling in the left scrotum for 3 years. Left orchidectomy was done. Histopathology showed ectopic splenic tissue surrounding testicular parenchyma suggestive of SGF. This rare congenital malformation may occur due to the proximity of developing gonad and spleen, resulting in abnormal connection between them during gestation. SGF presents a diagnostic challenge preoperatively; however, recent imaging methods can aid with the diagnosis. SGF as a rare cause of testicular swelling should be kept in mind and evaluated to avoid unnecessary orchidectomy. (Source: Journal of Ind...

Management of intussusception in the era of ultrasound-guided hydrostatic reduction: A 3-year experience from a tertiary care center
Conclusion: HSR is a safe and effective treatment modality for intussusception. However, it is met with higher failure rates in patients with risk factors such as delayed presentation, appearance of crescent on USG, and length >10 cm. The role of HSR is also dubious in situations such as neonatal intussusception, small-bowel intussusception, and multiple intussusceptions and also in preventing the future recurrence. Such patients ought to be managed by laparotomy or where feasible by laparoscopy. Furthermore, before embarking on HSR, peritonitis and bowel ischemia should be ruled out clinically and radiologically. In t...
