Lymphangiomas are benign lesions with a marked predilection for the head and neck region. Giant lymphangiomas of head and neck may occur and they may present with life threatening complications. The author is presenting here, a three month-old boy who presented with a giant cystic lymphangioma on left side of neck, which extended to the head as well. His clinical diagnosis of a cystic lymphangioma was confirmed on a Ultrasonography (USG) examination. Complete surgical excision of the lesion was achieved, without damaging any vital structures. His post-operative recovery was uneventful. A follow-up at two months after his surgery showed a cosmetically acceptable scar and no recurrence was noted.

We report a case of a large mature teratoma with rare microscopic foci of the immature elements of the mesentery of the jejunum and ileum, which were diagnosed by histology in an infant. She presented with an abdominal lump since birth. Her clinical examination revealed a non tender, mobile, mass, occupying the right hypochondrium and the epigastric and the umbilical areas. USG and CT scan of the abdomen confirmed a heterogeneous mass of a size of 10 × 8 × 6 cm, with calcification seen in the intra peritoneum and displacing the intestinal loops to the left side. Exploratory laparotomy and complete excision of the tumour was done from the mesentery of the jejunum and the ileum. She was advised chemotherapy, as the biopsy was having immature elements and her serum alpha foetoprotein levels were markedly raised, but her parents refused chemotherapy. She is on regular follow up and is doing well.

Ectopia cordis (EC) is defined as the complete or partial displacement of the heart outside the thoracic cavity. It is a rare congenital defect in the fusion of the anterior chest wall, resulting in the extra thoracic location of the heart. We are describing here, two cases of thoracoabdominal EC. One died after emergency surgery and another is awaiting definitive procedures.
