Colonoscopy is a safe procedure for the diagnosis and management of colorectal diseases. Colonic perforation due to colonoscopy represents an uncommon complication. Here we present an unusual case of iatrogenic bowel perforation resulting in subcutaneous facial and neck emphysema, pneumomediastinum and pneumoretroperitoneum. Taking a detailed recent medical history information is always required when encountering patients with subcutaneous emphysema after invasive examination procedures. Alertness on iatrogenic complication eventualities may improve prognosis and avoid life-threatening conditions...

Cardiac conduction defects are commonly observed in patients with ankylosing spondylitis, infective endocarditis, and aortic valve replacement. Each of these clinical situations can also present with ventricular tacyhcardia by different mechanisms. Here we report the case of a 53-year-old man with a medical history of untreated ankylosing spondylitis and aortic valve replacement who presented with ventricular tachycardia and underwent successful catheter ablation. Most ventricular tachycardia episodes were intermittent and drug resistant, which could have been caused by abnormal automaticity rather than re-entry...

OBJECTIVE: Currently, no clinically useful tumor marker is available for primary diagnosis in endometrial cancer. Human epididymis protein-4 (HE-4) has high sensitivity and specificity as a tumor marker. Further, HE-4 has been shown to be elevated in early stage endometrial cancer and is more sensitive than CA 125. In our study, CA 125 and HE-4 reputation as a tumor marker for diagnosis of ovarian and endometrial cancer with the use of both the availability and affect the way we investigated the rate of diagnosis...
