Cat-scratch disease (CSD) is an emerging zoonosis caused by Bartonella henselae. The disease is usually self-limiting and typically presents in about 90% of all cases as a subacute regional lymphadenopathy. We present a case report of an unusual CSD presentation, persistent hepatic granulomatous disease due to Bartonella henselae infection despite combination therapy with doxycycline and rifampicin. Furthermore, a review of literature was conducted. (Acta gastroenterol. belg., 2016, 79, 497-499).

Here we present a sixty-two year old man with bilateral swellings palpated in inguinal areas on physical examination. Ultrasonography and abdominal multi-detector computed tomography revealed a bladder herniation through the right inguinal canal and a sigmoid colon herniation through the left inguinal canal. Radiologic imaging methods are important and can guide clinicians for preemptive or emergent surgery. (Acta gastroenterol. belg., 2016, 79, 495-496).

Background : Lymphangiomas are tumours that are often found in the head and neck in children and, rarely, in adults. Among all lymphangiomas in adults, the small bowel mesentery type accounts for less than 1%. We aim to present a rare case of small bowel symptomatic cystic lymphangioma in an adult patient, as well as its diagnosis and subsequent treatment. Patient : An adult female who was admitted to the University Clinical Center Tuzla for surgery presented with abdominal pain, tenderness and swelling of the abdomen...

Temozolomide (TMZ) is an oral imidazotetrazine methylating agent which is used for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). We report a case of acute hepatotoxicity in a 53-year old male patient after administration of TMZ for GBM. He had fatigue, nausea, anorexia and jaundice. His laboratory analysis showed alanine aminotransferase(ALT) : 632 IU/L (normal range 0-40) ; aspartate aminotransferase(AST) : 554 IU/L (normal range 5-34) ; alkaline phosphatase(ALP) : 1143 IU/L (normal range 40-150) ; γ-glutamyl transpeptidase(GGT) : 514 IU/L (normal range 9-64 IU/L) ; total bilirubin : 15...

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-limiting disorder caused by mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). This defective chloride channel, present in different organ systems such as respiratory system, gastrointestinal tract, reproductive system and sweat glands, disturbs the ion and water transport over the membranes leading to the well known CF symptoms. CF has outgrown paediatric care, as half of CF patients are currently adults. The CF gastrointestinal tract has its own particularities...

Cancer of the gastroesophageal junction (GEJ), although rare, is now considered a separate entity with a distinct pathophysiological and molecular profile. Although much progress has been made over the past decades in delineating the multiple environmental and genetic pathways involved GEJ carcinoma, the exact molecular mechanisms underlying disease initiation and progression are still poorly understood. This is of paramount importance for the treating physician as the disease bears a poor therapeutic response...

Navajo Neurohepatopathy (NNH) is a rare hepatocerebral mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) depletion syndrome (MDS) with nonspecific clinical or pathologic features aside from Navajo ancestry. Because of the rarity of NNH, diagnosis rests on close clinicopathologic correlation and appropriate tissue triage for quantitative mtDNA analysis. We present a new case of NNH in which the clinical presentation and H&E liver biopsy histology indicated the need for NNH workup. Quantitative analysis of mtDNA in liver tissue was significantly reduced, and mutational analysis of the MPV17 gene confirmed homozygosity for the NNH-associated missense mutation, R50Q...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Celiac disease (CD) is a common gluten-related disorder, whose only treatment is a gluten-free diet (GFD). Since a unique view on psychological consequences of a GFD still lacks, our aim was to assess the quality of life (QoL) and the depression state in symptomatic CD patients after GFD. Socio-demographic features were considered. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 210 adult CD patients were recruited and divided into 3 groups : 70 newly diagnosed patients (​Group A​),70 patients who have been on GFD for 6-12 months (​Group B​), and 70 patients who have been on GFD for more than 12 months (​Group C​)...

OBJECTIVE: To understand the clinical characteristics of patients with abnormal liver function as the first symptom of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS: Here, 15 patients admitted to a hospital from January 2010 to December 2013 with initial presentation of lupus-related hepatitis or cirrhosis were included. Their SLE-DAI scores and clinical and laboratory data were collected. All cases received liver protection therapy and active SLE controlling treatment with methylprednisolone combined with rapamycin...

INTRODUCTION: Early recognition of post-ERCP pancreatitis (PEP) would help deliver an appropriate discharge plan following ERCP. Functioning of the autonomic nervous system can be measured using non-invasive heart rate variability techniques (HRV) and provides quantitative information about the modulation of cardiac vagal and sympathetic activity. Pain evoked sympathetic activation is a well-known phenomenon, as exhibited in those suffering PEP. The aim of this study is to determine if a single post-procedural measurement of HRV identifies those at risk of developing PEP...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Investigation of the first participation rate and follow-up results of the Flemish colorectal cancer screening program. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In 2013 five age cohorts with an even age between 66 and 74 year old (n=243 335) were invited by mail to return a completed iFOBT. Participants who tested positive (≥75ng/ml) were referred to a follow-up colonoscopy. RESULTS: Participation rate was 48.4% (n=117 774). Overall positivity rate was 10...

BACKGROUND: Anastomotic leakage is one of the most severe surgical complications following surgery. This prospective study was designed to investigate an association between the calcification in the descending aorta and its major branches using a calcium-scoring software and colorectal anastomotic leakage. METHODS: From January 2012 to March 2013, one hundred patients underwent surgeries involving colorectal anastomosis procedures. Calcium score in descending aorta and great pelvic vessels was measured using the Syngo-CT 2006G-W software...

BACKGROUND: Capsule Endoscopy (CE) has become the first-line tool to identify an underlying etiology for Obscure Gastrointestinal Bleeding (OGIB) in the small bowel (SB). This study aims to investigate the long-term outcome of patients with a negative CE. METHODS: Retrospective review of standardized application forms of all patients who underwent CE for OGIB at the Ghent University Hospital between 2002 and 2013. Follow-up data on patients with a negative CE result (n=263) were collected by contacting the referring physician...
