ABSTRACT

An attempt has been made to stress the importance of roentgenological examination in establishing definite preobservation diagnosis in some of the alimentary tract emergencies in the newborn. A brief account of the roentgenological criteria has been given with illustrations of surgically proved cases whereever possible. A short list of pertinent references is appended.

Figure 0009: Omphalocele. Enormous umbilical hernia containing all the bowel. Incidentally noted teeth in a congenital sacro-coccygeal teratoma

Mentions: This anomaly of developmental origin is such a striking abnormality in the newborn that it usually receives prompt attention by the clinician. This condition consists of herniation of the abdominal contents into an abnormal sac-like umbilical cord, which consists of a translucent membrane composed of peritoneum and amniotic membrane. In rare cases, the infant may be born with an omphalocele in which the sac is absent. Roentgenological examination is imperative whenever there is clinical evidence of intestinal obstruction or strangulation. Anteroposterior and lateral views of the abdomen reveal the typical obstruction pattern of the bowel as previously described. In addition, the gas distended loops of bowel can be traced lying outside the anterior abdominal wall. However, occasionally associated abnormalities such as sacrococcygeal dermoid can also be detected as in one of our cases which is shown in Figure 9.
