Intestinal parasites cause significant morbidity and mortality. Diseases caused by Enterobius vermicularis, Giardia lamblia, Ancylostoma duodenale, Necator americanus, and Entamoeba histolytica occur in the United States. E. vermicularis, or pinworm, causes irritation and sleep disturbances. Diagnosis can be made using the "cellophane tape test." Treatment includes mebendazole and household sanitation. Giardia causes nausea, vomiting, malabsorption, diarrhea, and weight loss. Stool ova and parasite studies are diagnostic...

It is now widely accepted that peptic ulcer disease (PUD) is a result of chronic infection of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). Thus, treatment of PUD should be aimed toward eradication of H. pylori with antibiotics. One the other hand, recent study from England suggested that eradication of H. pylori may provoke development of reflux esophagitis in duodenal ulcer patients. Despite duodenall ulcer patients with concomitant esophagitis is a specific type of esophagitis, it is important to recognize the development of reflux esophagitis after cure of H...

Maintenance treatment of duodenal ulcer (DU) with ranitidine 150 mg/day was compared with placebo in a two year prospective multicentre randomised study. Three hundred and ninety nine patients were included (mean age: 44.7 years, M/F ratio = 2.47/1; 37.6% of smokers) in placebo (n = 202) and ranitidine (n = 197) groups. Efficacy was assessed by the length of time to the first ulcer pain attack (with or without endoscopic confirmation) or DU complication. One hundred and fourteen patients of 399 (28.6%) had incomplete follow up...

A report is given of 34 cases of Ulcus rodens of the eye (Mooren), which were examined and treaded during a period of five years in Togo, West Africa. The cases were divided into two groups according to the development of the disease. In fourteen cases the progress of the disease was arrested by local treatment (described individually for each eye), and by simultaneous treatment of the Helminthosis (Ascaris lumbricoides and Ankylostoma duodenale), from which the patients were also suffering. It seems likely that Ulcus rodens is caused by an antigen-antibody reaction to Helminth toxins...
