: This case is considered exempt from review by Medical University of South Carolina’s Institutional Review Board because it does not constitute research (official policy attached, but also copied here). CT and clinical images were submitted as part of this case report but all the identifying information has been removed.Per HRPP 3.7 (III A): it is the policy that the publication of case reports of three or fewer patients is NOT considered human-subject research and does NOT typically require IRB review and approval because case reporting on a small series of patients does not involve the formulation of a research hypothesis that is subsequently investigated prospectively and systematically for publication or presentation. Therefore, three or less case is not considered research but rather a clinical exercise.
: Due to the novelty of this case, verbal consent for publication was obtained from the patient and his mother during the perioperative period as there was no available written consent form on hand at the time of surgery. The patient and his family have not been able to be reached by phone or email since surgery and have not followed up for a postoperative visit at this time (9 months postop). His pediatrician has not been able to contact the patient or mother. The patient may have moved to a new home or location but whereabouts are currently unknown. As such, verbal, but not written consent to publish this information has been obtained.
