A 70-year-old man was admitted to our clinic with a history of rectal bleeding and constipation, his colonoscopy revealed varicosities and bluish nodular lesions of the rectum (Figure 1). Abdominal CT showed multiple nodular lesions beginning from the distal descending colon and extending to the rectum, calcifications suggesting phleboliths were also seen in these lesions. A contrast enhanced pelvic MRI demonstrated multiple tubular lesions showing hyperintensity on T2-weighted images and hypointensity on T1-weighted images, consistent with the affected areas on the CT scan (Figure 2)...

We present a case of a 41-year-old woman with severe abdominal pain caused by two jejuno-jejunal intussusceptions. Further investigation showed coeliac disease as the underlying cause. The patient recovered rapidly on a gluten-free diet. So coeliac disease could be the underlying cause of idiopathic intussusception more often than previously thought and intussusception should be suspected in patients with known coeliac disease presenting with abdominal pain.

We report a case of two peculiar gallbladder polyps in a sixty-four year old male who presented with symptomatic cholelithiasis. Cholecystectomy was performed, which revealed two polyps measuring 0.6 cm and 1.9 cm, located in the body of the gallbladder. Microscopic examination of the polyps showed composite mesenchymal lesions with vascular proliferation of small-to-medium sized arterioles, myoid stroma, and lipomatous periphery. The myoid component was characterized by wisps of bland smooth muscle fibers loosely separated by proteinaceous and focally myxoid matrix...

We report a case of primary gastric diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), de novo DLBCL without the features of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma, which regressed after Helicobacter pylori (HP) eradication. A 27-year-old Japanese female with epigastralgia was revealed to have ulcerated lesions in the angle and antral regions on gastroscopy. Biopsy specimen was consistent with a diagnosis of DLBCL without MALT lymphoma component, indicating de novo development. Her clinical staging on the Lugano system was Stage I...

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...

Obscure gastrointestinal bleeding is defined as bleeding of unknown origin that persists or recurs (i.e. recurrent or persistent iron deficiency anemia, fecal occult blood test positivity or visible bleeding) after a negative initial workout that necessarily includes gastroscopy and colonoscopy. In clinical practice, small bowel capsule endoscopy is recommended as a third stage examination in these patients, since it is a simple, safe, non-invasive and reliable test. To date there are three available small bowel capsule systems that have gained FDA approval and their diagnostic yield has shown to be superior to other diagnostic modalities for the investigation of the small bowel in patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding...

REVIEW

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is involved in multiple gastrointestinal and extra-gastrointestinal disorders. This review focuses on possible link between H. pylori eradication and Crohn's disease (CD) which is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Fecal calprotectin and; to lesser extent; fecal lactoferrin are sensitive and specific markers for monitoring CD activity. Data about link between H. pylori eradication and CD are limited and inconclusive. The infection likely shifts equilibrium between T helper 1 (Th1) and Th2 immune responses to the Th2 pattern...

Predicting the course of an attack of acute pancreatitis still represents a challenge for the physicians.Some early interventions such as endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography and sphincterotomy, admission to the intensive care unit, enteral feeding, and prophylactic antibiotics have been proven to decrease morbidity and mortality in patients of high-risk groups. However, acute pancreatitis has a potential of morbidity and mortality, and therefore early diagnosis and objective assessment of severity of the disease is fundamental...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Currently there is no satisfactory treatment of chronic HDV. We aimed to evaluate the long term efficacy of PEG-interferones. PATIENTS METHODS: Patients who received PEG-interferone for chronic delta hepatitis during a 7-year period were retrospectively analysed. End of treatment response, virologic response at 6 months after treatment, and long term efficacy were evaluated. Predictors of treatment response were determined. RESULTS: The study group consisted of 31 patients...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Due to rarity of insulin-producing pancreatic neuroendocrine carcinomas, no large, nor randomized studies of the clinical course, treatment options and outcome are available. Therefore, we want to share our personal experience and we retrospectively reviewed a cohort of five patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study reports on the clinical characteristics, disease course, management and outcome of five patients with an advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine carcinoma with insulin production, which we followed recently in our center (between 2006 and 2015)...

BACKGROUND: Esophageal endoscopic submucosal dissection enables en bloc resection of large superficial esophageal cancer; however, this procedure may induce severe stricture. Intralesional steroid injection is an effective treatment for prevention of stricture after endoscopic resection; however, there have been no studies assessing the duration of such treatment. The aim of this study was to reduce treatment duration and to evaluate the effectiveness of weekly and biweekly steroid injections in preventing esophageal stricture after endoscopic resection...

BACKGROUND: hepatitis C virus (HCV) is an RNA virus that induces hepatocarcinogenesis by mechanisms other than integration in the host cell genome. Dickkopf-1 (DKK1) expression has been studied mostly in hepatitis B virus induced HCC but not properly investigated in HCV induced HCC. AIM: Aim: we aimed to assess serum DKK1 in HCV induced HCC, HCV induced liver cirrhosis and viral infection-free controls. Moreover, we assessed serum DKK1 level after curative resection of HCC...

BACKGROUND: adult intussusception is a rare entity with a different clinical presentation and aetiology than in children. Objective: To provide a comprehensive overview of the clinical presentation, aetiology, diagnosis and management of adult intussusception. METHODS: We review 43 cases with a preoperative diagnosis of symptomatic gastrointestinal adult intussusception. RESULTS: In 67% of the cases an underlying lead point was discovered...

BACKGROUND: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a progressive inflammatory disease that ultimately results in cirrhosis and liver failure. It is assosiciated with two step hit scenario; the first step is fat accumulationin liver and in the second step inflammation and fibrosis are the major compenents. The incidence of this disease is increasing worldwide, following rising incidences of obesity and diabetes mellitus. AIM: The aim of this study is to analyze the relationship between non-alcoholic fatty liver disease andseverity and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio among the patients having type 2 diabetes mellitus...
