Umbilical hernias

Umbilical hernias are commonly found in infants and children. An umbilical hernia is a bulge of intraabdominal organs through an opening in at the base of the umbilicus (belly button). This occurs when abdominal muscles fail to come together forming an opening called an umbilical ring. The size of umbilical hernias varies from child to child. Many umbilical hernias close on their own by 3 to 4 years of age…

Inguinal hernia is the most common surgical problem of childhood. It results from a small sac that comes through the inguinal ring that is normally open during fetal life and closes around the time of birth. For reasons we don’t understand, it does not close in some infants. This sac then makes a pathway for abdominal organs to come through the inguinal ring into the groin.

It’s not known exactly why some boys are born with undescended testicles. Most boys with the condition are otherwise completely healthy…

Thyroglossal Duct Cyst

A thyroglossal duct cyst is a cystic remnant of the tract that thyroid cells take during early fetal development from the base of the tongue to its postnatal location in the middle to lower neck. Normally, the remnants of this tract obliterate late in the first trimester, but if cells of this tract persist, they can give rise to a midline cystic remnant known as a thyroglossal duct cyst. Thyroglossal duct cysts can occur anywhere…
