A variant of bile duct carcinoma, intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct (IPNB) is a rare disease mainly found in Eastern Asia which encompasses a spectrum of intraductal papillary growth occurring anywhere along the intrahepatic and/or extrahepatic biliary tree that carries a high potential for malignancy. We report the case of a patient with episodes of recurrent cholangitis that was diagnosed with IPNB, our clinical and diagnostic approach, the radiographic and endoscopic findings, the interventions used, while discussing the therapeutic options...

Schistosomiasis is a parasitic disease caused by Schistosoma species. Intestinal and hepatic schistosomiases are the most common forms of chronic disease. We describe a case of a 26-year old patient from Eritrea who was referred to our hospital with abdominal pain and diarrhea. The diagnosis of hepatosplenic schistosomiasis was made by liver biopsy and the patient was treated with praziquantel. Hepatic schistosomiasis is characterised by deposition of schistosomal eggs in the liver which results in a host cell immune response and leads to granuloma formation and neoangiogenesis...

Colonoscopy is generally safe, although expansion of colorectal cancer prevention programs is likely to increase the number of post-colonoscopy complications. We report the case of a 42-year old woman with a prior history of 2 cesarean section deliveries who developed abdominal pain after an otherwise uneventful screening colonoscopy. Urgent exploration revealed closed-loop obstruction involving the terminal ileum, caused by an adhesive band close to the site of her previous Pfannenstiel incision. A systematic review of the literature revealed 11 reports (1985-2008) describing a total of 13 cases of mechanical small bowel obstruction (MSBO) after colonoscopy, 9 of which were confirmed by laparotomy...

IgG4-related disease is a rare inflammatory disorder that may mimic many infectious, malignant, and autoimmune conditions. The biliary tract is frequently involved, but hepatic lesions are rarely seen. Diagnosis is often delayed due to the absence of specific clinical and radiological signs, and the lack of an accurate diagnostic marker. Differential diagnosis includes cholangiocarcinoma, primary sclerosing cholangitis and intrinsic or metastatic liver disease. Corticosteroids are the cornerstone of therapy but treatment has not been standardized and relapse is common...

Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) is highly prevalent and associated with considerable liver-related and non-liverrelated morbidity and mortality. There is, however, a lot of uncertainty on how to handle NAFLD in clinical practice. The current guidance document, compiled under the aegis of the Belgian Association for the Study of the Liver by a panel of experts in NAFLD, from a broad range of different specialties, covers many questions encountered in daily clinical practice regarding diagnosis, screening, therapy and follow-up in adult and paediatric patients...

Tom G Moreels
Medical publishing has become a pivotal aspect of all stages of career development in medicine in Belgium. Publication pressure is therefore present from the stage of the medical student to the level of the head of an academic medical service. This pressure represents a real danger to commit scientific misconduct, ranging from minor missteps to severe fraud. Recent surveys have shown that scientific misconduct and publication fraud represent an important problem in medical publishing, more than in other scientific fields, also in Belgium...

BACKGROUND: Several observational studies have investigated interleukin-18 (IL-18) gene polymorphisms with regard to susceptibility to hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, but the results have been inconsistent. AIM: To evaluate the relationships between functional polymorphisms in the IL-18 gene and an individual's susceptibility to HCV infection, a meta-analysis was performed. Methods: A literature search was conducted using the PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science and China BioMedicine databases to investigate the correlation between IL-18 gene polymorphisms and susceptibility to HCV infection...

E Macken, S Van Dongen, S Francque, G Van Hal
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: In relation to recent implementation of colorectal cancer screening programs at the regional level, quality assessment of colonoscopy gains more interest in Belgium. In order to evaluate quality indicators of colonoscopies in Belgium, we retrospectively analysed data about colonoscopies performed between 2002-2010. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Coded data concerning number of medical procedures and polypectomy were provided by the Intermutualistic Agency (IMA)...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: Data about single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) in locally advanced colorectal cancers are scarce. This study aimed to evaluate perioperative and shortterm oncologic outcomes of SILS in pT3-T4 colorectal cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From 2011 to 2015 data from 249 SILS performed in our Colorectal Unit were entered into a prospective database. Data regarding patients with a pT3-T4 colorectal adenocarcinoma were compared to those with pTis-pT2...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: Anti-TNF monoclonal antibodies are a cornerstone in the treatment of Crohn's disease. Prospective data on switching from the subcutaneous and human adalimumab (ADM) to the intravenous and chimeric infliximab (IFX) are scarce. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this prospective, observational, multicentre cohort study we included 21 patients with loss of response to ADM despite at least 4 consecutive weekly injections. Clinical response (CDAI drop≥70 points) and remission (CDAI≤150) were assessed after switching from ADM to IFX after 10 weeks, 6 and 12 months...
