M S van Maaren, A E J Dubois
The diagnosis of food allergy is established in cases where an immediate allergic reaction has occurred in the last year to a clearly identifiable allergenic food combined with sensitisation to this allergenic food. In all other cases, a food challenge test is required to establish or reject the diagnosis of food allergy. Although the double-blind placebo-controlled food challenge (DBPCFC) test is considered the gold standard, false-positive and false-negative outcomes occur. The incidence of false-positive outcomes is unknown because the results of DBPCFC tests cannot be further confirmed by other tests...

The incidence of endometrial carcinoma is rising and the patients with distant metastases have a poor prognosis, especially when progression of disease occurs after systemic treatment with hormonal therapy or chemotherapy. Pazopanib, a multi-targeted inhibitor of several oncogenic receptor tyrosine kinases, has been investigated in patients with chemotherapy-resistant endometrial carcinoma or patients for whom chemotherapy is contraindicated. In this report we will describe a spectacular response to pazopanib in a patient with recurrent metastatic endometrial carcinoma...

Hypokalaemia is a common clinical problem. It can lead to severe disturbances in cardiac, neurological and muscle function. We present the case of a 45-year-old woman who was transported to our hospital with cardiac arrest following ventricular fibrillation. Blood sampling revealed severe acidosis (pH 7.02) and extreme hypokalaemia (0.9 mmol/l). The low serum potassium level was most likely caused by the combination of a very deficient diet and use of a thiazide diuretic. She never reported any symptoms. An acute intracellular shift of potassium due to epinephrine and perhaps also the cathecholamines in Red Bull may have further decreased the serum potassium concentration...

K E Verweij, H van Buuren
Oriental cholangiohepatitis is a condition occurring in the Asian population, characterised by recurrent bacterial cholangitis and presence of calculi within the intrahepatic bile ducts, biliary strictures and an increased risk for cholangiocarcinoma. It is an uncommon disease in the West that may not always be considered. The therapeutic approach is multidisciplinary and highly individual, and includes antibiotic therapy, endoscopic and percutaneous biliary drainage with stone removal and dilation of strictures, and in selected cases surgical resection of affected liver segments...

OBJECTIVE: Hemithyroidectomy is the most common endocrine surgical procedure and is performed with low complication rates. Multiple international reports indicate that thyroid surgery in the day care setting is feasible and safe. Despite these results, day care thyroid surgery has not yet been implemented in the Netherlands. The objective of this study is to assess the safety of thyroid surgery in our institution and, when deemed safe, implement day care thyroid surgery. METHODS: All patients who underwent hemithyroidectomy in our institution between January 2010 and December 2014 were included in the retrospective analysis...

J J E Koopman, H Putter
BACKGROUND: The practice of euthanasia and physicianassisted suicide has been compared between countries, but it has not been compared between regions within the Netherlands. This study assesses differences in the frequencies, characteristics, and trends of euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide between five regions in the Netherlands and tries to explain the differences by demographic, socioeconomic, and health-related differences between these regions. METHODS: Data on the frequencies, characteristics, and trends of euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide for each region and each year from 2002 through 2014 were derived from the annual reports of the Regional Review Committees...

In the Western world, peritoneal dialysis (PD) is less frequently applied as substitute therapy in end-stage renal disease (ESRD). In the Netherlands the use of PD has decreased from 30.3 to 13.5% due to several factors, but not due to lower PD-related outcome. The lower penetrance of PD diminishes experience with and exposure of young professionals to this treatment modality. This does not enhance a free and motivated choice among renal replacement therapies for patients who cannot be transplanted pre-emptively...
