Primary malignant tumors of the small intestine are very rare, accounting for 2%-3% of all gastrointestinal malignancies. Lymphoma constitutes about 15%-20% of all small intestine neoplasms and 20%-30% of all primary gastrointestinal lymphomas. The ileum is the most common site for gastrointestinal lymphomas. Because the symptoms and physical findings are non-specific, the preoperative diagnosis is usually difficult. In this case report, we describe the highly unusual case of sporadic Burkitt lymphoma with complete intestinal obstruction due to intussusception of the proximal jejunum and discuss the treatment options...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: We evaluated our 16-year single-center experience of pediatric post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) cases who underwent liver transplantation between 2001 and 2017. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Of the 236 pediatric patients who underwent liver transplantation between 2001 and 2017, the clinical and laboratory data of eight patients diagnosed with PTLD were reviewed. The pre-transplant Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) status of 172 patients was also recorded...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The dynamic thiol/disulfide homeostasis plays pivotal roles in many physiological mechanisms in an organism. We aimed to investigate whether dynamic thiol/disulfide homeostasis changes among patients with acute pancreatitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This prospective trial contained 45 patients with acute pancreatitis and 45 sex-and age-matched healthy volunteers as control group. Thiol/disulfide homeostasis parameters were measured by a novel and automated assay, and detected results were compared between the two groups...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Acute pancreatitis (AP) is characterized by acute inflammation of the pancreas and it has a highly variable clinical course. The aim of our study was to evaluate the value of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography in the diagnosis and clinical course of AP. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Consecutive patients with a diagnosis of AP (patients group) and healthy subject (control group) were prospectively enrolled to the study. Demographic features and clinical, laboratory, and radiological data were recorded...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: It is unclear whether patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) require a high dose of sedatives during colonoscopy. In this study, we investigated the pre-procedural anxiety levels, sedative consumption, procedure times, complications, and patient's satisfaction between patients with IBS and controls for ambulatory colonoscopy under sedation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Rome III criteria were used in the diagnosis of IBS. Anxiety levels were measured using Spielberger's State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) and Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI)...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Endoscopic papillectomy (EP) has emerged as an alternative to surgery in the management of ampullary lesions. The aim of this study is to evaluate feasibility, efficacy, safety, outcome, and impact of EP in the management of benign ampullary lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a multicenter, retrospective study of 44 patients who had EP of benign ampullary lesions. RESULTS: Over the 11-year period, 44 (55.7%) of 79 patients underwent EP for benign ampullary lesions...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Patients with liver transplantation are at increased risk of developing new malignancy because of the prolonged immunosuppression after transplantation. The aims of this study were to investigate whether advanced colorectal neoplasms occurs more in liver transplant recipients compared to healthy individuals and to evaluate the effect of immunosuppression on advanced colorectal neoplasia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective, single-centered, case-control study...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Developing an easy and reliable score for evaluating the prognosis of patients with liver cirrhosis has always been challenging for hepatologists. This study aimed to assess the lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR) in comparison with the Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) and Child-Pugh (CP) scores for determining the outcomes in these patients during hospital stay. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curve was used to assess the efficacy of three parameters (LMR and MELD and CP scores) in determining the outcomes in 182 patients with cirrhosis...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Chronic hepatitis C (CHC)-related mortality generally results from cirrhosis and subsequent complications. We aimed to investigate the potential role of plasma bile acid levels and ABCB11 1331T > C (V444A, rs2287622) (ATP-binding cassette subfamily B, member 11) gene polymorphism in fibrosis prediction in CHC genotype 4 patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This case control study included 85 healthy control and the following 225 subjects: 170 adult patients infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV) and categorized into three groups according to liver biopsy; no fibrosis group (F0) (n=33), early fibrosis group (F1-F2) (n=61), and advanced fibrosis group (F3-F4) (n=76)...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Screening for latent tuberculosis infection is mandatory before starting anti-tumor necrosis factor therapy. New assays based on interferon-γ (IFN-γ) release have recently become available and may be more accurate. The aim of this study was to compare QuantiFERON-TB and tuberculin skin test in screening for latent infection in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We prospectively screened 138 patients with inflammatory bowel disease for latent tuberculosis infection with chest X-ray, tuberculin skin test, and a third-generation QuantiFERON-TB test...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Toll-like receptors (TLRs), particularly TLR2 and TLR4, take part in elicitation of immune responses against Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). This study aimed to investigate the relationship between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) rs3804099 in the TLR2 gene and rs4986790 in the TLR4 gene with H. pylori infection and peptic ulcer (PU). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Blood specimens were obtained from 350 individuals, including 100 H. pylori-infected patients with PU, 125 H...

Yunus Akkoç, Devrim Gözüaçık
Autophagy is a key biological phenomenon conserved from yeast to mammals. Under basal conditions, activation of autophagy leads to the protein degradation as well as damaged organelles for maintaining cellular homeostasis. Deregulation of autophagy has been identified as a key mechanism contributing to the pathogenesis and progression of several liver diseases, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), one of the most common and mortal types of cancer. Currently used treatment strategies in patients with HCC result in variable success rates...

This consensus report includes expert opinions and recommendations regarding the screening, and if necessary, the follow-up, prophylaxis, and treatment of hepatitis B before the treatment in patients who will undergo immunosuppressive therapy due to an emergency risk of hepatitis B reactivation. To increase awareness regarding the risk of hepatitis B reactivation in immunosuppressive patients, academicians from several university health research and training centers across Turkey came together and discussed the importance of the subject, current status, and issues in accordance with the current literature data and presented solutions...
