Anorectal malformations have long been associated with multiple other anomalies, commonly referred to as the VACTERL complex. We present a case of a newborn baby girl with an unusually high number of associated anomalies, including the rarely encountered condition of uterus didelphys.

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.
