INTRODUCTION:  Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are infrequently reported to cause gastroduodenal intussusception, especially in the cases with complete pylorus obstruction. GISTs comprise only 1 - 3 % of all gastrointestinal tract tumors, and most of them strongly express the c-KIT protein. Approximately 5 % of GISTs show negative staining of c-KIT. CASE PRESENTATION:  A 69-year-old man complained of acute abdominal pain accompanied with nausea and vomiting for 6 hours...

BACKGROUND: Intussusception is the most common cause of intestinal obstruction in young children, and delayed diagnosis may lead to serious sequelae. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of ileoileal intussusception and to document and compare clinical outcomes with ileocolic intussusception. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of children with an abdominal ultrasound that diagnosed intussusception. Clinical data and diagnostic studies were retrieved, to compare ileoileal with ileocolic intussusception...

BACKGROUND: Intussusception is the most common cause of intestinal obstruction in young children, and delayed diagnosis may lead to bowel perforation. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of fever in patients with ileocolic intussusception and to determine its utility as a predictive symptom. METHODS: This was a 3-year retrospective study, at a tertiary care center, of children aged 1 month to 6 years, presenting with possible intussusception...

PURPOSE/BACKGROUND: Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is one of the most common congenital malformations of gastrointestinal tract in children. However, the nonspecific clinical manifestations of MD often cause a diagnostic as well as therapeutic challenge to pediatric surgeon. This study aimed to review our experience in managing this disease while evaluating the management strategies. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the clinical data of all patients diagnosed with MD admitted to our center between January 2010 and December 2015...

INTRODUCTION: Adenocarcinoma of the small bowel is a rare neoplasm presented usually in elder patients as a single tumor. Its presentation as multiple tumors and in young patients is exceptional and there aren't any guidelines to orient its therapy. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We present the rare case of a sixteen-year-old woman that presents to the emergency department with an intussusception due to a small bowel tumor. The resected specimen showed multiple adenocarcinomas...

Transient intussusception without any underlying lead is a rare clinical entity which can cause abdominal pain in adults. It has been associated with inflammatory bowel disease, cystic fibrosis, and endocrinological disorders. We present a case of transient jejunojejunal intussusception in a 42-year-old Hispanic male patient without any underlying pathological lead point. Surgical intervention yielded a negative laparotomy and resection was not undertaken. We discuss the clinical presentation, surgical procedure, risk factors leading to episodes of transient intussusception, and the use of surgery versus conservative management in such cases...

The present paper describes a case of ileocecal intussusception detected by ultrasound and confirmed by CT, including the imaging characteristics allowing its diagnosis. The patient was referred for colonoscopy, which could not be completed, to assess the cause of intussusception. Then it was decided to resort to Virtual colonoscopy, which allowed to identify and characterize a cecal neoplasm serving as a lead point for the intussusception.

RATIONALE: Postoperative intussusception is an unusual clinical entity and is rarely encountered as a complication following gastrectomy, especially radical total gastrectomy. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 74-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with complaints of melena and hematemesis. And the endoscopic biopsy confirmed the poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma of the stomach. Radical total gastrectomy with Uncut Roux-en-Y reconstruction was performed. On the third postoperative day (POD3), the patient complained of paroxysmal pain around the umbilicus, accompanied by nausea and vomiting...

An 18-year-old man presented after undergoing multiple investigations for abdominal pain. Retrograde double-balloon enteroscopy showed a protruding red lesion in the ileum with small ulcers, approximately 75 cm proximal to the ileocecal valve, resulting in an intussusception. An inverted Meckel's diverticulum was strongly suspected. Pressure was applied to the protruding lesion using contrast medium injection after wedging the lumen with a balloon. The intussusception partially reduced, avoiding the need for emergent surgery...

Meckel's diverticulum is a remnant of the proximal part of the vitellointestinal duct and is the most common congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract. It may either remain asymptomatic or present with myriad of clinical presentations. Gastrointestinal bleeding is the most common presentation in children whereas it is intestinal obstruction in the case of adults. We report a 9-year-old boy who presented with acute onset of periumbilical pain and nonbilious vomiting. His clinical and laboratory parameters were unremarkable, except for serum amylase levels...

We present a case of ileocecal endometriosis as a cause of infrequent ileocolic intussusception in an adult patient. It is reviewed as published by the authors Sanchez Cifuentes, A et al. 2016, emphasizing the rarity of the location of endometriosis, and its association as a cause of intussusception.

Inflammatory fibroid polyps (IFP) are an extremely rare entity that arise within the submucosa of the gastrointestinal tract, and represent less than 0.1% of all gastric polyps. They are most commonly localized to the gastric antrum, small intestines and recto-sigmoid colon. IFPs are most commonly found incidentally upon endoscopic evaluation in the absence of symptoms. Presenting symptoms depend on the location of the tumor, although polyps located in the stomach most commonly present with epigastric pain and early satiety...

IntroductionTwo vaccines available for protection against rotavirus gastroenteritis (RVGE), Rotarix and RotaTeq, have contributed to a large decrease in the incidence of paediatric diarrhoea in countries where they have been used. However, they have also led to a small increase in the risk of intussusception. Methods: We compare the number of prevented hospitalisations for RVGE to the number of vaccine-induced hospitalised intussusceptions in France. Results: With 9.5% coverage (French 2015 estimation), vaccination was estimated to prevent, annually, a median of 1,074 hospitalisations (2...

RATIONALE: Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS) is a Mendelian autosomal dominant disease caused by mutations in the tumor suppressor gene, serine/threonine kinase 11 (STK11). The features of this syndrome include gastrointestinal (GI) hamartomas, melanin spots on the lips and the extremities, and an increased risk of developing cancer. Early onset of disease is often characterized by mucocutaneous pigmentation and intussusception due to GI polyps in childhood. PATIENT CONCERNS: A girl with a positive family history grew oral pigmentation at 1 and got intussusception by small bowel hamartomas at 5...

BACKGROUND: The standard treatment for intussusception is air reduction enema (ARE) with inpatient observation for 24 to 48 hours to monitor for recurrence. More recent but limited observations suggest that patients who have undergone successful ARE can safely be discharged after 4 to 6 hours of observation. Our primary objective was to identify risk factors associated with early recurrence. Our secondary objectives included validating risk criteria from prior studies and identifying risk factors for ARE failures...
