INTRODUCTION: In patients diagnosed with anal fistula, knowing the quality of life specifically related to the disease can help coloproctology specialists to choose the most appropriate therapeutic strategy for each case. The aim of our study is to analyzse and describe the factors related to the specific quality of life in a consecutive series of patients diagnosed with anal fistula. METHODS: Observational, cross-sectional study carried out from March 2015 to February 2017...

Vaginal and vulvar tumors are uncommon in dogs. Knowledge of canine primary clitoral neoplasia is restricted to a few case reports, and only carcinomas have been reported. Cytologic and histologic features reported in the literature seem to overlap with those of canine apocrine gland anal sac adenocarcinoma (AGASA). Clinical features also recall those of canine AGASA, such as locoregional metastases and hypercalcemia of malignancy (HM). In this study, 6 cases of primary canine clitoral carcinomas (CCCs), with and without HM, were investigated by means of cytology, histopathology, electron microscopy, and immunohistochemistry for neuroendocrine markers including chromogranin A (CGA), synaptophysin (SYN), neuron-specific enolase (NSE), and S-100...

AIM: Anal fistula is a common disease originated from abscess according the cryptoglandular theory. A rare etiology is the pilonidal disease. In our case we observed a pilonidal disease mimicking an anterior perianal fistula, associated with another posterior anal fistula. CASE PRESENTATION: A 36-year old man was referred to our department with an anal fistula with an anterior opening. Despite the clinical examination and the endoanal ultrasound, only during the surgery we discovered the origin of the anterior fistula from a misdiagnosed pilonidal sinus...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: As access to effective antiretroviral therapy (ART) expands globally, a decline in AIDS-related morbidity and mortality has been complicated by rising rates of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). This review provides a brief description of NCDs and existing gaps on knowledge about NCDs among HIV-infected adults mostly in Africa. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent reports show that one in every five persons living with HIV has a chronic illness, predominantly diabetes and/or hypertension, depression, and most of these conditions are either not diagnosed or not being managed...

AIM: Hartmann's procedure (HP) is common. However restoration of intestinal continuity is not so frequent. The aim of this study was to determine predictive factors which might influence outcomes following reversal of Hartmann's procedure. METHOD: All consecutive patients that underwent elective and emergency HP in a single institution between January 1999 and December 2014 were included. Data concerning patient, disease and treatment features were collected. Univariate and multivariate binary logistic regression model were used to determine prognostic factors...

Chronic wasting disease (CWD) is a transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) affecting members of the cervid species, and is one of the few TSEs with an expanding geographic range. Diagnostic limitations, efficient transmission, and the movement of infected animals are important contributing factors in the ongoing spread of disease. Managing CWD in affected populations has proven difficult, relying on population reduction in the case of wild deer and elk, or quarantine and depopulation in farmed cervids...

Total retocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) is the surgery of choice for patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) that are refractory to clinical treatment. Pouchitis is one of the most common complications after this procedure. Defects in autophagy have been reported in inflammatory bowel diseases. However, there are no studies on the IP. Therefore, we studied markers for autophagy in the IP mucosa of UC and FAP patients comparing them to controls with a normal distal ileum. Sixteen patients with IP in "J" shape, asymptomatic and with endoscopically normal IP were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Methamphetamine use increases the risk of HIV-1 infection among seronegative users, and can exacerbate disease progression in HIV-positive users. The biological mechanisms underlying these associations remain unclear. In this cross-sectional pilot study, we examine the associations between recent methamphetamine use and inflammation in the rectal mucosa and peripheral blood compartments in HIV-1 seropositive and seronegative men who have sex with men (MSM). METHODS: HIV-seronegative and seropositive MSM participants were enrolled (N=24)...

The aim of this work is to develop a drug-loaded silk fibroin fibrous membrane (DSFM) that can be attached to the surface of an anal fistula plug to improve the treatment of Crohn's disease (CD). Curcumin (CUR) and 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA)-loaded silk fibroin (SF) membranes are coaxially electrospun onto the surface of a braided silk filament plug. The membranes show a predominant structure of random coil and silk I conformation. The concentration of CUR/5-ASA (weight ratio of 1/1) in the SF solution is optimized to 0...

AIM: To assess regular MRI findings and tumour texture features on pre-CRT imaging as potential predictive factors of event-free survival (disease progression or death) after chemoradiotherapy (CRT) for anal squamous cell carcinoma (ASCC) without metastasis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively included 28 patients treated by CRT for pathologically proven ASCC with a pre-CRT MRI. Texture analysis was carried out with axial T2W images by delineating a 3D region of interest around the entire tumour volume...

We studied 14 patients with anal squamous cell carcinoma(ASCC)who were treated in our hospital between 1994 and 2016. As initial therapies, surgeries were performed in 5 patients. Of these, disease recurrence appeared in 4 patients, and 3 patients died within 1 year after operation. Other 9 patients were treated with chemoradiotherapy. As a result, 9 of 6 patients were considered as complete response(CR), and 4 patients are still alive without recurrence. Although other 2 patients were recurred, recurrent lesions were removed and then, they are still alive...

Differentiating primary Paget's disease from secondary Paget's disease, which is also known as Pagetoid growth of other cancers, in the perianal region is difficult. Given that the treatment strategies of both disease are significantly different, diagnosis of such conditions should be performed with caution. We report a case of secondary Paget's disease. A 76-year-old man previously visited a hospital because of erythematous plaque around the anus. It was diagnosed as extramammary Paget's disease based on skin biopsy results; consequently, perianal skin resection was performed...

Human papilloma viruses (HPV) are a small group of non‑enveloped viruses belonging to the Papillomaviridae family with strong similarities to polyoma viruses. The viral particles consist of a genome in the form of a circular double‑stranded DNA, encompassing eight open reading frames, as well as a non‑enveloped icosahedral capsid. HPV infection is considered the most common sexually transmitted disease in both sexes and is strongly implicated in the pathogenesis of different types of cancer. 'High‑risk' mucosal HPV types, predominantly types 16, 18, 31, 33 and 35, are associated with most cervical, penile, vulvar, vaginal, anal, oropharyngeal cancers and pre‑cancers...

Chronic pouchitis (CP) after ileal pouch-anal anastomosis is a significant clinical problem. Adipose tissues produce antiinflammatory cytokines and chemokines. We evaluated the association between abdominal visceral fat area (VFA) and CP. Patients with a preoperative CT evaluation were included. The diagnosis of CP was confirmed in all cases by endoscopy with afferent ileal limb intubation. Patients were allocated into groups of high VFA and low VFA. The study cohort of 52 patients had a median body mass index of 22 (range, 14-32)...

RATIONALE: Rectal neuroendocrine tumor (NET) is a relatively rare tumor. Well-differentiated NETs (G1 and G2) rarely display distant metastasis at initial diagnosis. Currently, treatment for the primary lesions of rectal NETs with liver metastasis remains controversial. The liver metastasis was resected in local hospital. Transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) has emerged as an effective minimally invasive surgery for local resection of lower rectal lesions. Herein, we reported the initial application of TEM to remove the rectal primary lesion in patients with low rectal NETs (G2) with giant liver metastases...

Penile Mondor's disease is a rare condition characterized by sclerosing thrombophlebitis of the superficial dorsal penile vein. Usually its causes are benign, but it is also evident in cancer patients. We report the case of a 62-year-old man with a cT4 anal cancer (infiltration of corpora spongiosa and penile bulb), associated with extensive loco-regional lymphadenopathy, who developed painful lumps in the midline of the anterior penile surface while receiving radical chemoradiotherapy. Physical examination revealed two palpable cord-like swellings located 2 cm from the pubic symphysis...
