1.  Chylothorax after Primary Repair of Esophageal Atresia with Tracheo-esophageal Fistula: Successful Management by Biological Fibrin Glue 
A neonate, who had undergone primary repair of esophageal atresia with tracheo-esophageal fistula, developed right pleural effusion in the postoperative period. It was initially misdiagnosed as an anastomotic leak, but later confirmed to be chylothorax. Conservative treatment failed. Application of biological fibrin glue (sealant) on the mediastinum through a thoracotomy was curative.

2.  Bilateral Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia 
Bilateral congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a rare birth defect, with a poor prognosis. We describe a case of bilateral CDH discovered while repairing the right sided CDH. Diaphragmatic defect was repaired and a silo was applied on the abdominal wound to avoid abdominal compartment syndrome. The patient however died postoperatively due to severe pulmonary hypertension.

4.  Pedicled Omental Onlay Flap for Post-Traumatic Intrahepatic Major Ductal Injury 
We report a 5-year-old girl who presented with post traumatic biliary leakage that failed to respond to conservative management for two weeks. Surgical exploration in the third week revealed a partially healed 5 cm long hepatic laceration in the right lobe of the liver. Bile was found leaking through a rent in the major right intra-hepatic duct at the apex of liver laceration. A pedicled onlay omental flap was used to buttress this rent as direct closure was not possible due to friable tissue. The child recovered uneventfully.

5.  Colonic Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumour Presenting as Intussusception 
Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST) are rare in paediatric patients and have a discrete clinicopathological and molecular divergence from that observed in adults. In the present report we present a case of a 2-month-old female in whom colonic gastrointestinal stromal tumour acted as a lead point of colocolic intussusception. Laparoscopically assisted reduction of the intussusception and resection of tumour was done.
