In eastern Europe, few countries have so far reported laboratory-confirmed cases of lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV). Here we describe 22 LGV cases in men who have sex with men (MSM) detected in Hungary from November 2012 to July 2016. Sequence analyses show that 16 of these 22 cases were affected by the L2c genovariant, with from 2012 to 2014, one LGV L2c case detected per year, followed by seven cases in 2015 and six up to July 2016. Of the 16 total L2c LGV cases, 10 had severe haemorrhagic proctitis. These findings are concerning as cases with this new genovariant among MSM have not been frequently reported in Europe to date...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to investigate whether the implementation of a hydrogel spacer (SpaceOAR) programme for patients treated with 81 Gy prostate intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) in a regional setting can reduce rectal doses and toxicity. METHODS: In this retrospective study, 125 patients with localised prostate cancer treated between April 2014 (programme commencement) and June 2015 were compared: 65 with SpaceOAR (inserted by five different urologists) and 60 patients treated over the same time period without SpaceOAR...

BACKGROUND: Reactivated cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection has been known to cause significant morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients. However, CMV disease rarely develops in immunocompetent patients, and reported cases often present with a mild, self-limiting course, without severe life-threatening sequelae. While the colon is the most common gastrointestinal site affected by CMV disease in immunocompetent patients, rectal involvement is rarely reported. CMV proctitis can present in two distinct forms, primary and reactivated...

AIMS: To report the acute toxicity and the dosimetric correlates after moderately hypofractionated radiotherapy for localized prostate cancer. METHODS: A total of 101 patients with localized prostate cancer were treated with image-guided intensity-modulated radiation therapy. Patients were treated to 65Gy/25Fr/5 weeks (n = 18), or 60Gy/20Fr/4 weeks (n = 83). Most (82.2%) had high-risk or pelvic node-positive disease. Acute toxicity was assessed using Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) acute morbidity scoring criteria...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the feasibility of the use of real-time magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) fusion guided high-dose-rate brachytherapy (HDR-BT) +/- external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) in patients with histologically-proven local relapse after radical prostatectomy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 13 patients treated with real-time MRI-TRUS fusion HDR-BT for a local relapse of prostate cancer after radical surgery...

PURPOSE: The aim of this quasi-experimental study is to evaluate a novel technique for an outpatient application of formalin for chronic rectal bleeding after prostate irradiation. METHODS: This is a quasi- experimental clinical trial developed between January 2010 and July 2015, including 35 patients with chronic radiation rectitis (CRP) due to a previous prostate radiation course. The study's eligibility was (1) completed external beam radiation therapy for prostate carcinoma >6 months previously, (2) rectal bleeding, defined as a frequency of >1× per week and/or needing of blood transfusions, and (3) diagnosis of chronic proctitis at colonoscopy...

BACKGROUND: Efficacy of azathioprine (AZA) in refractory ulcerative proctitis (UP) is unknown. METHODS: All patients treated with AZA for refractory UP in three referral centers between 2002 and 2012 were included. "Treatment success" in the long-term was defined as the absence of colectomy during follow-up, no need for anti-TNF during follow-up, no ongoing systemic steroids use, no adverse event leading to AZA withdrawal, and clinically quiescent disease at last follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Data describing extent change (progression or regression) in pediatric-onset ulcerative colitis (UC) are scarce. GOAL: We aimed to describe extent change in pediatric-onset UC during long-term follow-up and to assess predictors of extent change. STUDY: Medical charts of pediatric-onset UC patients with at least 5-year follow-up were analyzed retrospectively. Disease extent was determined using the Paris classification. It was examined at diagnosis and during follow-up at different time points...

PURPOSE: Radiotherapy is effective in the treatment of tumors in the pelvic area but is associated with side effects such as cystitis and proctitis. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has emerged as a treatment modality for radiation-induced side effects. In a rat model for radiation cystitis, we studied the effects of HBOT on oxidative stress and pro-fibrotic factors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sedated Sprague-Dawley rats underwent bladder irradiation of 20Gy with and without 20 sessions of HBOT during a fortnight...

INTRODUCTION: Idelalisib is a selective inhibitor of the delta isoform of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase which was approved by the United States Federal Drug Administration in 2014 for the treatment of relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukemia and indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Drug-induced injury of the gastrointestinal tract is a relatively frequent but usually under-recognized disease entity. CASE PRESENTATION: We report the case of a 56-year-old male with a history of relapsed follicular lymphoma status post allogenic bone marrow transplant who developed severe diarrhea with a skin eruption mimicking graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) 6 months after starting idelalisib...

BACKGROUND: Identifying patient-level and disease-specific predictors of healthcare utilization in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) may allow targeted interventions to reduce costs and improve outcomes. AIM: To identify demographic and clinical predictors of healthcare utilization among veterans with IBD. METHODS: We conducted a single-center cross-sectional study of veterans with IBD from 1998 to 2010. Demographics and disease characteristics were abstracted by manual chart review...

A 32-year-old homosexual male presented with suprapubic pain. Computed tomography showed rectal wall thickening. Flexible sigmoidoscopy showed small pockets of pus that were opened with mucosal biopsies, and additional pus was diffusely expressed from the rectal wall by applying blunt pressure with the biopsy forceps. Cultures from the pus grew Prevotella bivia. Symptoms resolved after treatment with doxycycline and metronidazole. Proctitis due to P. bivia was not previously reported.

BACKGROUND: This before-and-after study measured the impact of a change in testing methods from culture to nucleic acid amplification testing (NAAT) on the detection of pharyngeal and rectal gonorrhea in men who have sex with men (MSM) on a sexual health service level, including the effect on subgroups anticipated to have higher rates of gonorrhea. METHODS: In March 2015, Melbourne Sexual Health Centre changed its laboratory method for gonococcal testing from culture to NAAT using the Aptima Combo 2 and Aptima GC tests...

AIM: The study's aim was to examine the clinical impact of radiation therapy (RT) on GI toxicity in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) patients. BACKGROUND: IBD has long been considered a risk factor for increased bowel toxicity from RT; however, minimal evidence exists on patients with prostate cancer (PC) and IBD. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The tumor registry was queried for patients with IBD and PC from the years 1990-2013. A retrospective review was conducted for patients who received RT...
