The diagnosis of duodenal adenocarcinoma is still a complex gastrological and oncological problem. The described case illustrates the unusual character of the course, the reasonableness of the diagnostic procedures and the scope of the therapy undertaken. The causes of anemia, which was the first symptom of the disease, were not revealed in the tests carried out at this stage - gastroscopy, colonoscopy, with normal other basic laboratory tests. At the next episode, after 6 months from the first, the presence of a bleeding lesion within the duodenum was revealed...

AIM: To assess coeliac disease prevalence in patients with Down syndrome in Poland. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study enrolled 301 patients with Down syndrome from six centres in Poland (Wroclaw, Sandomierz, Rzeszow, Grudziadz, Katowice, and Bydgoszcz)...

OBJECTIVES: To develop a content validated set of indicators to evaluate the quality of meals and meal service in residential facilities for elderly. Inadequate food intake is an important risk factor for malnutrition in residential facilities for elderly. Through better meeting the needs and preferences of residents and optimization of meals and meal service, residents' food intake can improve. No indicators were available which could help to guide strategies to improve the quality of meals and meal service...

BACKGROUND: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection has been well described as an opportunistic infection of patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of a patient with AIDS and lumbosacral polyradiculopathy, associated with gastroparesis resulting from CMV infection. CASE REPORT: A 46-year-old Hispanic woman with a history of HIV for 10 years was admitted to our hospital for nausea, vomiting, urinary retention, and generalized weakness...

BACKGROUND: This case report details an incidental finding of a submandibular duct fistula to a patient's posterior mouth floor found on a barium swallow examination that was performed to rule out gastrological causes of substernal chest pain. The radiologist was unable to determine the cause of the filling defect at the time of the study. The patient's history revealed that a large calculus of unknown size had been passed spontaneously through the floor of the mouth, rupturing the proximal gland duct and creating the fistula...

AFP-producing (hepatoid differentiation) gastric cancer (GC) initially reported in 1970 plays an important role in the field of gastrology, which should be distinguished from other solid-type GCs owing to their different biological behavior. This review article aims to summarize the literature related to the role of AFP in gastric cancer and to unveil the underlying mechanism by which AFP-production impacts prognosis of GC patients. The prima facie evidence demonstrated that AFP-producing GC is more aggressive and characterized by a high incidence of venous invasion, lymphatic invasion, and metachronous and synchronous liver metastasis compared with AFP-non producing GC...

Diaphanoscopy/transillumination, the method of shining a bright light through tissues, was devised in the mid-19(th) century and developed after the invention of the light bulb by T.A. Edison. Benjamin Milliot was the first to examine the stomach by means of an incandescent platinum wire. The experiments conducted by Max Einhorn using a device consisting of a Nelaton catheter with an inserted light bulb, were valuable. In Poland the method of gastrodiaphanoscopy was popularized by Teodor Heryng, Mikołaj Rejchman and by Warsaw doctors...

Diagnostic imaging is one of the most evolving branch of medicine. Its development was started by X-ray invention (W. K. Roengen in 1895). Among Polish and worldwide pioneers of radiology there was prof. Walery Jaworski, who is known mainly as a "father" of Polish gastrology and a discoverer of Helicobacter pylori. The aim of this article is to remind Professor's merits to Polish and worldwide radiology.

The progress in basic and clinical gastrology indicates that gastric mucosal integrity represents a balance between offensive and defensive factors. The main offensive factors appear to be gastric acid and pepsin under health conditions, while the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) and Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), infecting this mucosa, are currently considered the most important "aggressive" factors under pathological conditions. To the list of the aggressive factors, also stress, certain cytokines (TNF-alpha, IL-8, IL-11 and IL-18) and oxygen or nitrogen free radicals should be added...

Retroperitoneal fibrosis is a rare clinical entity characterised by the presence of patologic collagen tissue in a retroperitoneal space. The fibrous mass covers abdominal organs causing their disfunctions. RPF was described at the begining of XX century but its etiology is not clear yet. Usually it causes an ureter obstuction and hydronephrosis, that is why most commonly is diagnosed by urologists and nephrologists. However, retroperitoneal fibrosis can be multifacial disease. In some patients localisation of fibrosis is atypical and manifestationns can be varied...
