1.  Pancreatic Volvulus with Wandering Spleen and Gastric Volvulus: An Unusual Triad for Acute Abdomen in a Surgical Emergency 
Wandering spleen is a rare clinical condition which occurs due to laxity or absence of the normal intraperitoneal ligaments that hold the spleen in place. Gastric volvulus and wandering spleen share a common etiology of absence or laxity of intraperitoneal ligaments. The occurrence of simultaneous pancreatic volvulus has never been described before in adolescence. Herein, we report a case having wandering spleen with torsion, and gastric and distal pancreatic volvulus, an unusual triad in acute abdomen in an emergency setting, which has never been described before to the best of our knowledge.

2.  Mounier-Kuhn syndrome masquerading pulmonary thromboembolism in an elderly male 
Mounier-Kuhn syndrome, also referred to as tracheobronchomegaly, is a rare idiopathic clinical and radiologic disorder characterized by significant tracheobronchial dilation. It results in recurrent lower respiratory tract infections and bronchiectasis. In severe cases, patients may present with acute respiratory distress requiring hospital admission and ventilatory support. Clinical examination and chest radiography may be misleading in these patients as tracheobronchomegaly is easily overlooked on radiographs. We present an interesting report of our patient who presented with acute shortness of breath. A diagnosis of acute pulmonary thromboembolism was suggested by initial evaluation. Computed tomography pulmonary angiography was negative for thromboembolism; however, it revealed diagnosis of this rare disorder.
