Although tuberculosis (TB) remains a worldwide epidemic, isolated hepatic TB is an extremely rare entity and poorly described in the literature. Isolated hepatic TB may pose a diagnostic dilemma due to the non-specific clinical symptoms and imaging features. We present a case of a 54-year-old female with an isolated caseating granulomatous lesion at the caudate lobe of liver involving the pancreatic head.

BACKGROUND: During their 4 years of training, French fellows in gastroenterology should acquire theoretical and practical competency in gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy. AIMS: To evaluate the delivery of endoscopy training to French GI fellows and perception of learning. METHODS: A nationwide electronic survey was carried out of French GI fellows using an anonymous, 17-item electronic questionnaire. RESULTS: A total of 291 out of 484 (60%) GI fellows responded to the survey...

AIMS: To investigate the clinical features and outcomes of hospitalized patients with drug-induced liver injury (DILI). METHODS: The medical records of hospitalized patients with DILI from January 1997 through July 2016 were reviewed. RESULTS: Five hundred seventy cases were reviewed, of which 381 (66.8%) were female. Four hundred fifty-eight cases (80.4%) presented with hepatocellular injury, 53 (9.3%) with cholestatic injury and 59 (10...

PURPOSE: To discuss the value of the Bedside Index for Severity in Acute Pancreatitis (BISAP), Modified Early Warning Score (MEWS), serum Ca2+, similarly hereinafter, and red cell distribution width (RDW) for predicting the severity grade of acute pancreatitis and to develop and verify a more accurate scoring system to predict the severity of AP. METHODS: In 302 patients with AP, we calculated BISAP and MEWS scores and conducted regression analyses on the relationships of BISAP scoring, RDW, MEWS, and serum Ca2+ with the severity of AP using single-factor logistics...

REVIEW
Timur Liwinski, Christoph Schramm
Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is a progressive immune mediated liver disease of unknown origin. Key diagnostic features include hypergammaglobulinemia/elevated serum-IgG, characteristic circulating autoantibodies, periportal hepatitis with interface activity on liver biopsy and the exclusion of hepatotropic viruses. However, the diagnosis is challenging in cholestatic and severe presentations. It can be difficult to differentiate AIH from drug-induced liver injury. Although many patients initially respond to standard immunosuppressive therapy, a significant proportion experiences intolerable side effects or insufficient treatment response...

REVIEW
Etienne Pateu, Frédéric Oberti, Paul Calès
Here, we review recent improvements made to different noninvasive tests used for the diagnosis of esophageal varices (EV) in the light of the recent Baveno VI recommendation and with an emphasis on clinical application. Like for fibrosis tests, these noninvasive EV tests can be classified as direct markers when they provide a visualization of EV (including all imaging procedures like endoscopy or radiology) and as indirect markers when they do not (blood markers or elastometry). Clinical descriptors expressed as percentages, especially the spared endoscopy rate and the missed high-risk esophageal varices (HREV) rate, are more eloquent in this setting than classical statistical descriptors like accuracy...

The epidemiology of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections is continuously evolving. Updated data on dual HBV and HCV infection are still needed. AIMS: To assess the main characteristics of patients with HBV and HCV dual infection, to compare these with those of patients infected with either HBV or HCV and, among patients with dual infection, to assess fibrosis according to HCV replication. METHODS: Data of 23 patients with dual infection were compared to data from 92 age and sex-matched HBV or HCV monoinfected patients...

BACKGROUND: Considering the clear association between metabolic syndrome and future cardiovascular disease, early detection of metabolic syndrome is important. This study was conducted to assess the correlation between metabolic syndrome components and within-normal-range of liver enzymes in Iranian adults. METHODS: This cross-sectional study was comprised of 700 Iranian adults in the districts of East Azerbaijan-Iran in 2015. The levels of lipid profile and glucose were measured by enzymatic colorimetric methods...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: The association between non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and atrial fibrillation (AF) has been suggested by recent epidemiological studies although the results were inconsistent. This meta-analysis was conducted to summarize all available data. METHODS: A comprehensive literature review was conducted using MEDLINE and EMBASE database through May 2017 to identify all studies that reported the risk of AF among patients with NAFLD versus those without NAFLD...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Liver cirrhosis and its complications are important factors contributing to mortality worldwide. Statin use is probably associated with lower risk of hepatic decompensation and mortality, but not with cirrhosis or fibrosis progression according to a recent systematic review. We aimed to evaluate the definite effects of statins on the risk of virus-related cirrhosis. METHODS: We systematically searched four databases up to May 7, 2017, without language restriction...

BACKGROUND: In patients with NAFLD, there is an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Selenoprotein P (SelP), a hepatokine, is associated with insulin resistance (IR) and serum SelP was found to be elevated in patients with NAFLD. AIM: This study aimed to determine the risk of CVD in NAFLD patients and the association of serum SelP levels with this NAFLD related CVD risk. METHODS: Ninety-three patients with NAFLD and 37 healthy controls were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Entecavir (ETV) and tenofovir disoproxil fumarat (TDF) are the two first-line therapies recommended in the treatment of chronic hepatitis B because of having potent antiviral effect and high genetic barriers against resistance. We aimed to compare efficacy of these drugs and to evaluate predictors of viral suppression. METHODS: This multicenter retrospective study was conducted in nucleos(t)ide analogue-naive chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients from different 6 centers...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Although various endoscopic resection techniques have been established for rectal carcinoid tumors, there remains controversy regarding the best endoscopic treatment modality for these tumors. This study aimed to evaluate and compare the therapeutic efficacy and safety of EMR with circumferential incision (EMR-CI) and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for endoscopic resection of rectal carcinoid tumors. METHODS: From March 2012 to June 2016, 66 rectal carcinoid tumors in 66 patients were resected by using EMR-CI (n=30) or ESD (n=36)...

BACKGROUND: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a common liver disorder worldwide. Several noninvasive diagnostic scoring systems have been developed to determine the severity of liver fibrosis and to predict long-term outcome of patients with NAFLD in lieu of liver biopsy. We conducted this systematic review and meta-analysis to investigate the role of NAFLD fibrosis score (NFS) for prediction of mortality from NAFLD. METHODS: MEDLINE and EMBASE databases were searched through October 2016 for studies that investigated the association between high NFS and mortality...
