26.  Congenital Melanocytic Nevi with Primary Cerebral Melanoma: A Rarity 
A16-year-old male was admitted in hospital because of frontal and temporal melanoma. There were congenital giant nevi on his back and head. Positron emission computed tomography revealed no extra-cranial primary lesion. He underwent surgery, whole-brain radiotherapy (WBRT), and chemotherapy; but he could not be saved and died 6 months after establishing diagnosis.

48.  Transection of Gut Loop Due to Post-Operative Adhesions 
Transection of gut due to adhesive band is an unusual complication of adhesive bowel disease. A 2-year old female presented with signs and symptoms of intestinal obstruction. Eight months earlier she underwent laparotomy for excision of duplication cyst of ileum. Exploratory laparotomy performed during current admission showed complete transection of gut.

49.  Congenital Laryngeal Cyst: A Rare Cause of Polyhydramnios 
Congenital laryngeal cyst is a rare cause of airway obstruction that may require urgent diagnosis and treatment. We report a case of a neonate having history of polyhydramnios and severe respiratory distress at birth. A laryngeal cyst detected during intubation. The outcome of laryngoscopic treatment of the cyst was favorable.
