1.  Congenital Pyloric Atresia with Distal Duodenal Atresia- Role of CT Scan 
The mainstay of diagnosis of congenital pyloric atresia is by plain X-ray of the abdomen showing a large gas bubble with no gas distally. But very rarely it can be associated with distal duodenal atresia when the baby may present as lump abdomen. In such a situation apart from the X-ray, another radiological investigation is needed to delineate the exact nature of the lump. Since the role of ultrasonography is limited in intestinal pathologies and contrast studies are not informative in atresias, the CT scan is the ideal choice. We had managed a case of pyloric atresia with similar presentation with preoperative CT scan.

4.  Heterotopic pancreas presenting as ileoileal intussusception 
Heterotopic, aberrant or ectopic pancreas is defined as the presence of pancreatic tissue in topographic anomaly, with no anatomical, neural or vascular connection to the normal pancreas. It is a rare condition found mainly in stomach, duodenum and jejunum. Ileal heterotopic pancreas is an uncommon condition and has been rarely reported in children so far. Hereby we report a case of heterotopic pancreas presenting as ileal poyp leading to ileoileal intussusception in a 12 year child.

6.  Gastric Teratoma: A Rare Neoplasm 
A 3-day-old male child was brought to the hospital with complaints of abdominal distension and a mass in the upper abdomen causing respiratory difficulty. Child underwent exploratory laparotomy and a large multicystic mass arising from postero-inferior wall of the stomach along its greater curvature was excised and stomach repaired. On histopathology it came out mature gastric teratoma.

7.  Giant pericardial cyst in a 5-year-old child: A rare anomaly 
Pericardial cysts are uncommon congenital abnormalities that occur in the middle mediastinum. Most of these are found incidentally on chest x-rays. The occurrence of pericardial cyst in children is quite rare. It needs to be differentiated from other cystic mediastinal masses. A rare case of pericardial cyst in a 5 year old male child is reported. The child presented with chest pain, cough and fever. The preoperative diagnosis of pericardial cyst was suggestive on echocardiography and CT scan. It was confirmed on histopathology after successful surgical excision. The rarity of this benign mediastinal lesion in children prompted us to report this case.
