Kluth type IV3 membranous esophageal atresia at middle one-third of esophagus: An extremely rare entity
Rahul Gupta, Pramila Sharma, Arvind Kumar Shukla, Sunil MehraJournal of Indian Association of Pediatric Surgeons 2017 22(4):254-256We herein present an extremely rare case of an isolated membranous atresia causing near-complete obstruction of the esophagus. The neonate presented with drooling of saliva and frothing from the mouth. A red rubber catheter met with an obstruction at 12 cm from the gum margins. Radiograph showed paucity of gas in the abdomen. Thoracotomy revealed external continuity of esophagus; dilated and elongated proximal segment constituting upper half of esophagus, and a membrane with tiny opening in the...

Ectopic salivary gland cyst in the neck: Association with congenital plunging ranula
We report a large, symptomatic, congenital plunging ranula associated with a salivary gland cyst in the neck. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first such reported case. Even though both the cysts had their origin from the sublingual gland, only the cervical cyst had a capsular covering. Herniation of a part of the immature sublingual gland anlage through a congenital mylohyoid defect, its separation, and subsequent maturation could explain this occurrence.
