Neonatal intussusception secondary to intestinal duplication cyst: A case report
Keywords:Duplication cyst, Intestine, Intussusception, Neonate, Bleeding per rectum
Background: Intussusception is a rare cause of bleeding per rectum in neonates. Duplication cyst as a pathological lead point for intussusception is rarer too.
Case Presentation: A female neonate presented with bilious vomiting and bleeding per rectum. Ultrasonography diagnosed it as intussusception. Intraoperatively, on reduction of intussusception, a mass was found which on histopathological examination (HPE) revealed a duplication cyst.
Conclusion: A high index of suspicion is required for an early diagnosis of neonatal intussusception, which is essential for preventing complications and mortality.
