Title: Gohary’s disease
Biography: Amin El Gohary
Gohary’s disease is a new phenomenon that has not been described before. It depicts a group of children who present to emergencyrndepartment with severe agonizing abdominal pain. Th e pain tends to start and ends abruptly, no predisposing factor andrnrecurs aft er minutes or hours. Ultrasonography revealed mesas at right iliac fossa, which is usually diagnosed as intussusception.rnTh e underlying cause of such phenomenon is the fecal impaction of stool at terminal ileum which acts as intermittent intestinalrnobstruction. We have encountered 19 cases over the last 5 years, their age varied from 9 months to 8 years with the majority underrnthe age of 2 years. Th e cadinal symptoms and signs are severe abdominal pain that warrants urgent attention, empty rectum onrnexamination and ultrasound diagnosis of intussusceptions. All these cases were managed by fl eet enemas with immediate response.rnAwareness of this condition will help to avoid unnecessary investigation and unjustifi ed exploration.
