101–05
Synopsis: 
Urinary tract infection is an important cause of serious bacterial infection in neonates affecting 1 in 3 babies with proven bacterial infection and may be the first indicator of underlying structural abnormalities. The absence of specific distinguishing clinical features makes it necessary to include urine cultures in the sepsis evaluation of neonates presenting with symptoms suggestive of sepsis.


ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study was to describe the epidemiology of urinary tract infection in neonates, with serious bacterial infections, admitted to the University Hospital of the West Indies.

Obstruction of the Duodenum by a Preduodenal Portal Vein in Situs Inversus

Issue: 
Pages: 
285–7

ABSTRACT

Mirror image transposition of abdominal and thoracic viscera is termed situs inversus. Duodenal obstruction in situs inversus is rare. A preduodenal portal vein, though not uncommon in situs inversus, rarely causes duodenal obstruction. Where obstruction by a preduodenal portal vein is diagnosed, a duodeno-duodenostomy is the recommended treatment. A duodenal diaphragm and other more common causes of duodenal obstruction should also be excluded in these patients.
