The finding of portal pneumatosis may be related to multiple etiologies such as intestinal inflammatory diseases, intestinal infectious diseases, chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments or advanced stages of intestinal ischemia. The gold standard for diagnosis is computed tomography, and once the findings are observed, proper differential diagnosis must be asserted to prevent unnecessary laparotomies.

REVIEW
Josef Finsterer, Marlies Frank
Mitochondrial disorders (MIDs) due to respiratory-chain defects or nonrespiratory chain defects are usually multisystem conditions [mitochondrial multiorgan disorder syndrome (MIMODS)] affecting the central nervous system (CNS), peripheral nervous system, eyes, ears, endocrine organs, heart, kidneys, bone marrow, lungs, arteries, and also the intestinal tract. Frequent gastrointestinal (GI) manifestations of MIDs include poor appetite, gastroesophageal sphincter dysfunction, constipation, dysphagia, vomiting, gastroparesis, GI pseudo-obstruction, diarrhea, or pancreatitis and hepatopathy...

A 54-year-old woman underwent colonoscopy for colon cancer screening. Colonoscopy showed multiple cysts in the sigmoid colon, with the largest being 4 cm in diameter. One of the cysts was biopsied. Cyst walls were observed; during biopsy, the gas was released and the cyst collapsed. Computed tomography of the abdomen confirmed a diagnosis of pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis. Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis is a rare disease characterized by the presence in the intestinal submucosa or subserosa of multiple cysts filled with gas (nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide and hydrogen)...

Pneumatosis intestinalis (PI), defined as intestinal intra- and extramural gas accumulation, is a rare radiographic finding in conditions of intestinal wall damage of varied etiology. Here, we report on a 56-year-old female with multiple myeloma who presented with undulating fever, fluctuating abdominal symptoms, and a distended abdomen 5 months after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Abdominal X-ray and CT scan documented PI with gas accumulation both in the intestinal and colonic bowel walls...

Pneumatosis intestinalis (PI) and the presence of portal venous gas (PVG) are commonly considered pathognomonic for necrotizing enterocolitis in the neonatal period; however, these 2 radiographic findings have been documented in all age groups in a variety of clinical settings and medical conditions including respiratory, cardiac, rheumatologic, gastrointestinal disorders, and traumatic injury. In children, intramural dissection of intestinal gas in the absence of clinical symptoms suggestive of necrotizing enterocolitis should raise concern for a traumatic etiology, including injuries sustained from child physical abuse...

BACKGROUND: Non-occlusive mesenteric ischemia (NOMI) is a common complication and accounts for a major cause of death in critically ill patients. The diagnosis of NOMI with respect to the eventual indications for surgical treatment is challenging. We addressed the performance of the diagnostic strategy of NOMI in the intensive care unit, with emphasis on contrast-enhanced abdominal CT-scan. METHODS: This was a retrospective monocenter study. Patients with clinically suspected acute mesenteric ischemia were included if a comprehensive diagnostic workup was carried out including surgical and/or endoscopic digestive explorations...

Hepatic portal venous gas is a rare cause of acute abdomen caused by leakage of air from the gastrointestinal tract to the portal venous system. The mortality is high, particularly when associated with intestinal ischemia or necrosis. We describe a fatal case of hepatic portal venous gas and pneumatosis intestinalis due to hemodialysis-related hypotension and severe atherosclerotic disease.

INTRODUCTION: The most common cause of gas under diaphragm is hollow viscous perforation. In 10% of cases it can be due to rare causes, both abdominal and extra-abdominal, one of them being intra abdominal infection by gas forming organisms. PRESENTATION OF THE CASE: A 51 year old male patient, a poorly controlled diabetic, presented with a second episode of severe pain abdomen and abdominal distention, with lower abdominal tenderness. Plain Xray of the abdomen in erect posture showed gas under the right dome of diaphragm and ultrasound abdomen confirmed gross pneumoperitoneum...

History and clinical findings: We present the case of a 63-year-old male patient free of complaints with oncological follow up examination after renal cell carcinoma (RCC) who presented extent air in the intestinal wall. Investigations and diagnosis: The computed tomography showed a pronounced pneumatosis intestinalis with punctum maximum in the part of left and less right colon flexure. Free air as a sign of perforation was not found. Treatment and course: Retrospectively, the pneumatosis intestinalis was found in fluctuating extent in several preliminary CT and MRI investigations...

Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis (PCI) is an uncommon disease that generally lacks symptoms and is rarely associated with intussusception. A 29-year-old man visited our hospital for right upper abdominal pain. Computed tomography (CT) scan revealed multiple air-filled cysts along the intestinal wall and a pseudokidney sign in the transverse colon. A gastrographin enema examination showed a so-called crab finger appearance and multiple elevated translucency in the transverse colon. From these findings, the diagnosis of intussusception associated with PCI was made...

Objective The purpose of our study was to differentiate the imaging findings of patients with spontaneous intramural intestinal hemorrhage (SIIH) from those with acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) after abdominal computed tomography (CT) survey in the emergency department. Methods We retrospectively included 83 patients diagnosed with SIIH or AMI after abdominal CT. Results The mean ages of 30 SIIH patients and 53 AMI patients were 74.4±14.6 years and 75.8±11.2 years, respectively. Patients with SIIH had significantly thicker maximal intestinal wall thickening (14...

On 25 January 2014, a 1 mo old female Amazonian manatee Trichechus inunguis calf weighing 12 kg was rescued by air transport in Guajará, Brazil, and transferred to Mamirauá Institute's Community-based Amazonian Manatee Rehabilitation Center. The calf presented piercing/cutting lesions on the back, neck, and head, in addition to dehydration and intermittent involuntary buoyancy. X-ray analysis revealed a large amount of gases in the gastrointestinal tract. Daily procedures included wound cleaning and dressing, clinical and laboratory monitoring, treatment for intestinal tympanism, and artificial feeding...

BACKGROUND: Pneumatosis intestinalis (PI) is defined as the presence of gas in the bowel wall and is a relatively rare finding. PI has been associated with various pathological conditions and medications. Although several chemotherapeutic agents and molecular targeted therapy agents are reported to be associated with PI, there have been few reports describing the association between the anti-epidermal growth factor receptor agent gefitinib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), and PI. The present report describes a case of PI secondary to gefitinib therapy...

REVIEW
Ian W Folkert, Robert E Roses
Emergency operations are associated with increased morbidity, mortality, and cost compared to elective operations. Palliative and emergent surgery for patients with advanced malignancies is associated with additional risk and remains controversial. Emergent or palliative interventions can be broadly categorized according to indication. Tumor related complications (bleeding, obstruction, or perforation) merit specific consideration, as do specific presentations such as pneumoperitoneum, pneumatosis intestinalis, or peritonitis from other causes that may arise during active therapy for malignancies...

INTRODUCTION: Pneumatosis intestinalis (PI) and hepatic portal venous gas (HPVG) are typically associated and are likely to represent a spectrum of the same disease. The causes of both entities range from benign to life-threatening conditions. Ischaemic causes are known to be fatal without emergency surgical intervention. PRESENTATION OF CASE: In this case a 93year old male experienced acute abdominal pain radiating to his back, with nausea and vomiting and a 2-week history of altered bowel habit...
