Peutz-Jeghers syndrome associated with eventration of left hemidiaphragm in a child: A case report
Keywords:Intussusception, Eventration of the diaphragm, Intestinal polyps, Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS)
Background: Peutz–Jeghers syndrome (PJS) is a rare genetic disorder. PJS with ileo-ileal intussusception and left-sided eventration of the diaphragm is an extremely rare presentation and not been reported so far.
Case Presentation: An 8-year-old child of PJS presented with acute intestinal obstruction. Examination and investigations of the child revealed intussusception with left side elevated hemidiaphragm. Surgical correction of both conditions was done.
Conclusion: PJS with intestinal obstruction due to intussusception needs surgical correction. Sometimes these cases may present with other associated surgical conditions that too need simultaneous surgical correction.
