Gastric diseases are very common in China, especially gastric cancer with a continuous high level of morbidity and mortality. As an important screening method of gastric diseases, magnetically-controlled-capsule-gastroscopy (MCCG) has already been widely used in medical institutions worldwide. Several clinical trials have already showed that MCCG has comparable accuracy in diagnosing gastric diseases compared with conventional gastroscopy. Furthermore, MCCG has the advantages of anesthesia free, no risks of cross infection, and excellent compliance...

Invasive fungal infections are a major cause of mortality among solid organ transplant recipients. Scopulariopsis species and their teleomorph Microascus are molds found in soil and decaying organic matter. We report here the case of a woman who underwent bilateral lung transplantation for severe emphysema. On day 25 after transplantation, endobronchial green-black lesions were detected during routine endoscopy. Endobronchial swabs, biopsies, and broncho-alveolar lavage samples were positive for Microascus cirrosus...

BACKGROUND: The brain and gastrointestinal (GI) tract are strongly connected via neural, endocrine, and immune pathways. Previous studies suggest that headaches, especially migraines, may be associated with various GI disorders. However, upper GI endoscopy in migraineurs has shown a low prevalence of abnormal findings. Also, the majority of studies have not demonstrated an association between Helicobacter pylori (HP) infection and migraine, although a pathogenic role for HP infection in migraines has been suggested...

A reddish depressed lesion was found in the corpus of the stomach of a 56-year-old man. Gastric biopsy showed no findings of MALT lymphoma, including lympho-epithelial lesions. A urea breath test, stool antigen test and serum IgG antibody to Helicobacter pylori test were negative. Magnifying endoscopy using narrow-band-imaging showed no malignant structures. Gastric biopsy specimens were subjected to immunohistochemistry and a PCR, which identified Helicobacter suis infection. Triple therapy with esomeprazole, metronidazole, and amoxicillin was administered for 10 days...

Purpose of review Benign epithelial gastric polyps, although typically asymptomatic, are identified incidentally on upper endoscopy in up to 23% of patients. These include fundic gland, hyperplastic, and adenomatous polyps. Their appropriate characterization is critical as some have malignant potential, may be indicative of a gastric mucosal field defect, or may be related to an underlying polyposis syndrome. This review will discuss the current management of benign epithelial gastric polyps. Recent findings Association of gastric polyps with proton pump inhibitor use, Helicobacter pylori infection, risk of malignant transformation, and association with polyposis syndromes have been the focus of recent literature...

Pulmonary Lymphangitic Carcinomatosis (PLC) occurs in about 6-8% of patients with lung metastasis and may rarely develop in the course of gastric cancer representing a complication due to diffuse metastasis in the lymphatics of the lungs. A 29-year-old female, admitted with difficulty in breathing and productive cough for one week, was initially evaluated for respiratory tract infection. During evaluation of associated anaemia an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed large ulcerative growth in the lesser curvature of the stomach suggestive of carcinoma...

Lysozyme amyloidosis (ALys) is a rare autosomal dominant hereditary systemic amyloidosis associated with a large spectrum of clinical manifestations. ALys phenotype mainly involves the digestive tract, liver and spleen, kidneys, lymph nodes, skin, and lachrymal and salivary glands. Very recently, cardiac involvement and peripheral neuropathy associated with a new p.Leu102Ser variant of lysozyme have been documented. In the present observation, we extend the phenotypic heterogeneity of ALys to the tracheobronchial tree with histologically proven bronchial ALys-amyloid deposits...

A substantial decrease in Helicobacter pylori-associated peptic ulcer disease has been observed during the last decades. Drug-related ulcers as well as idiopathic ulcers are becoming predominant and are more refractory to treatment; however, H. pylori infection still plays an important role in ulcer bleeding and recurrence after therapy. The effect of H. pylori eradication upon functional dyspepsia symptoms has been reviewed in this article and generally confirms the results of previous meta-analyses. Additional evidence suggests a lack of impact upon the quality of life, in spite of improvement in symptoms...
