Colon cancer can present with complications such as obstruction, perforation and bleeding. The clinical presentation has been recognised as an independent prognostic factor for morbidity and mortality. 1 We present a rare case of localised perforation of a locally advanced colon cancer arising from mid-transverse colon in an elderly woman in the absence of widely metastatic disease with eventual cutaneous involvement of the overlying skin by direct extension, resulting in formation of colocutaneous fistula...

INTRODUCTION: Abdominal wound closure is a challenge in patients undergoing colorectal surgery with a complex history of multiple abdominopelvic operations. Loss of domain of the abdominal fascia because of prior laparotomies precludes the use of simple, everyday abdominal wound closure techniques. Furthermore, ongoing intra-abdominal sepsis, with or without a concurrent entero- or colocutaneous fistula, increases the risk of postoperative morbidity and mortality in this patient population...

Mesenteric masses are infrequent lesions ranging from benign cysts to aggressive malignancies and often present a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. The mesentery is a frequent recipient of metastases from the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, and biliary cancers. Primary mesenteric tumors are relatively rare, mostly mesenchymal in origin and benign in nature. Examples include gastrointestinal stromal tumors and smooth muscle tumors. We describe a 50-year-old woman, who presented with a lump in the left hypochondrium along with altered bowel habits of 2 years' duration...

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a double-stranded DNA virus that is associated with clinically significant disease in patients with advanced immunosuppression, particularly those with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). End-organ disease with CMV is classically associated with a CD4 cell count less than 50 cells/microliter. CMV colitis is the second most common manifestation of end-organ disease in this patient population. CMV-associated enteric fistula is a rare complication that has been described in only a few case reports in the literature...

INTRODUCTION: Incidence of hernial appendicitis is 0.008%, most frequently within inguinal and femoral hernias. Up to 2.5% of appendectomy patients are found to have Crohn's disease. Elucidating the etiology of inflammation is essential for directing management. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 51-year-old female with achondroplastic dwarfism, multiple cesarean sections, and subsequent massive incisional hernia, presented with ruptured appendicitis within her incarcerated hernia...

Actinomycosis is a chronic or subacute bacterial infection characterized by large abscess formation, caused mainly by the gram-positive non-acid-fast, anaerobic, or microaerophilic/capnophilic, obligate parasites bacteria from the Actinomyces genus. Although pelvic inflammatory disease is an entity associated with the longstanding use of intrauterine devices (IUDs), actinomycosis is not one of the most frequent infections associated with IUDs. We present the case of a 43-year-old female patient who was referred to the emergency facility because of a 20-day history of abdominal pain with signs of peritoneal irritation...

Acute pancreatitis is characterized by activation of digestive enzymes inside the pancreas. In severe pancreatitis, necrosis of pancreas and surrounding tissues may occur. Acute necrotizing pancreatitis commonly presents as pancreatic abscess occasionally with systemic complications. Rarely, necrotic tissue may be drained from scrotum due to retroperitoneal extension of necrotic process. Here, we report a case of acute necrotizing pancreatitis in a 29-year-old man who presented with severe abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic skin disorder of the terminal follicular epithelium of apocrine sweat glands, manifesting as painful and exudative papules, pustules, cysts or nodules. This inflammatory condition often presents with other systemic and cutaneous disorders. We present the case of an African-American man with HS who was also diagnosed with neutrophilic dermatoses and diverticular disease. Neutrophilic dermatosis was identified based on histopathology findings. Our patient underwent multiple surgeries for flaring of his skin condition...

BACKGROUND: Anorectal malformations (ARMs) are rarely seen in adults, since majority of cases are corrected in infancy or childhood. The aim of this study was to describe the profile of patients who underwent definitive surgery to correct their ARM in adulthood, and to discuss the outcomes of surgery (morbidity, mortality, and function). METHODS: This retrospective study included patients 18 years old and above, managed surgically by the Division of Colorectal Surgery at the Philippine General Hospital, University of the Philippines, Manila, from January 1, 2004, to December 31, 2012...

A 68-year-old male nursing home resident presented following dislodgement of a percutaneous endoscopic colostomy (PEC) tube originally sited to prevent recurrent sigmoid volvulus. Computed tomography demonstrated tube migration into the lumen of the recto-sigmoid junction, where it remained for 12 days before passing spontaneously. During this period, the patient remained asymptomatic; the residual colocutaneous fistula functioned as a decompressive valve. Originally, the patient was due to be discharged with early flexible sigmoidoscopy follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Diverticulitis has become a medically managed disease process; the indications and timing of surgical intervention have evolved. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all patients who underwent surgical intervention due to diverticular disease by the Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery from 2012 to 2014. RESULTS: Ninety-eight surgeries were performed. Indications included colovesicular fistula, multiple recurrences of diverticulitis, medically refractory diverticulitis, stricture, abscess, colocutaneous fistula, and colovaginal fistula...

The plug-and-patch technique is frequently used for the open repair of inguinal hernias; however, serious complications may arise on rare occasions. We present the case of a 69-year-old patient who presented with a colocutaneous fistula with the sigmoid colon 9 years after the repair of a left sliding inguinal hernia with the plug-and-patch technique. The patient underwent sigmoidectomy and excision of the fistulous track. He was discharged on postoperative day 5 and had an uneventful recovery. Although such complications are reported rarely, the surgeon must be aware of them when deciding upon the method of hernia repair...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the short-term safety and efficacy of a co-axial angioplasty balloon technique for percutaneous radiologic gastrostomy catheter placement (PRG). METHODS: A total of 65 percutaneous radiologic gastrostomy tube placements were performed with the co-axial angioplasty balloon technique from 10/1999 to 1/2014. This included 19 females and 46 males between the ages of 20-83. Without the use of T-fasteners for gastropexy, the gastrostomy tube was placed over a catheter-shaft angioplasty balloon as a co-axial system...

Surgical resection should be considered for isolated locally recurrent retroperitoneal liposarcomas. We experienced a case of successful re-resection for locally recurrent retroperitoneal liposarcomas 4 years after ex vivo tumor resection and autotransplantation of the liver. A 75-year-old man was admitted to our hospital. His diagnosis was local recurrence of liposarcomas. He had previously undergone ex vivo tumor resection and autologous orthotopic liver transplantation for a retroperitoneal tumor 4 years earlier...

Colocutaneous fistulae secondary to diverticular disease are rare, especially spontaneous fistulae. We report a case of a 74-year-old lady, with no previous history of diverticular disease, presenting with necrotising fasciitis of the anterior abdominal wall in the left iliac fossa, without any other symptoms. Urgent surgery was performed. An initial diagnostic laparoscopy demonstrated a perforated sigmoid diverticulum forming a fistula to the anterior abdominal wall. Following soft tissue debridement, a sigmoid colectomy was performed through a midline laparotomy...

AIM: The colo-cutaneous fistula is an extremely rare post-operative complication of hernias. This type of complication, besides the surgical aspects, raises also a medical-legal problem regarding the production of the fistula and its consequences. CASE REPORT: The authors present the clinical case of a 65 years old man, J.N., from a rural background, who presented himself in the ambulatory with a colo-cutaneous fistula as a complication which debuted a few weeks after a surgical intervention for an irreducible left inguinal hernia...

To establish the effects of BPC 157 on the healing of rat colovesical fistulas, Wistar Albino male rats were randomly assigned to different groups. BPC 157, a stable gastric pentadecapeptide, has been used in clinical applications-specifically, in ulcerative colitis-and was successful in treating both external and internal fistulas. BPC 157 was provided daily, perorally, in drinking water (10µg/kg, 12ml/rat/day) until sacrifice or, alternatively, 10µg/kg or 10ng/kg intraperitoneally, with the first application at 30min after surgery and the last at 24h before sacrifice...
