Fascioliasis is a zoonotic infection caused by a liver trematode: fasciola hepatica; which commonly affects cattle and sheep, humans are accidental hosts. Several cases have been reported in the literature worldwide with a large geographical distribution. We present a case of bile duct obstruction due to a hepatic fascioliasis, successfully treated with both a combined surgical and medical approaches. A high index of suspicion should be kept in mind for all cases of obstructive jaundice, especially in areas in which human fascioliasis infection is repeatedly reported...

Right-sided ligamentum teres (RSLT) is a rare congenital anomaly often accompanied by variation of the hepatic vasculature. We herein report a surgical case of a hilar cholangiocarcinoma with RSLT in whom preoperative hepatectomy simulation proved useful for understanding the anatomical structure of the liver. A 78-year-old male with obstructive jaundice was referred to our department for further examination. The patient was suspected of having a hilar cholangiocarcinoma originating from the left hepatic bile duct by contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT), and CT also showed right umbilical portion (RUP)...

Hepatic fibrosis was caused by a number of signaling pathways that damage liver integrity. We have previously shown that microRNA-29a (miR-29a) protects against liver fibrosis. Aberrant endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and autophagy function reportedly exaggerate hepatic disorders. The aim of this study was to characterize the biological influence of miR-29a on ER function in injured livers with bile duct ligation (BDL). We performed BDL on miR-29a transgenic mice (miR-29aTg) and wild-type mice to induce cholestatic liver injury...

INTRODUCTION: Non-traumatic biliary perforation other than the gallbladder is extremely rare and most commonly seen in children in association with congenital biliary anomalies. We present a rare case of choledocholithiasis that progressed to spontaneous perforation of the common hepatic duct probably from ischemic necrosis caused by impaction of large biliary stones. CASEREPORT: A 62-year-old female presented with diarrhea and jaundice. She was found to have two 2...

BACKGROUND: Patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with jaundice have an extremely poor prognosis. Although biliary drainage can resolve obstructive jaundice, signs of obstruction may not be evident. This study evaluated the role of endoscopic biliary drainage in patients with advanced HCC and obstructive jaundice. METHODS: From 2010 to 2015, 74 patients underwent endoscopic biliary drainage for obstructive jaundice due to advanced HCC. Jaundice resolution was defined as complete response and total bilirubin concentration below 3 mg/dl...

Autoimmune pancreatitis type 1 (AIP) is the pancreatic manifestation of IgG4-related disease. The most frequent presentation of AIP is with obstructive jaundice. For definite diagnosis of type 1 Autoimmune pancreatitis international consensus diagnosis criteria (ICDC) for AIP are used. ICDC criteria include pancreatic parenchymal imaging, ductal imaging, serology, other organ involvement, histology, and response to steroid. We report a 52-years-old woman with rheumatoid arthritis without treatment presented with two months of abdominal pain in up-right quadrant with moderate intensity...

An 85-year-old woman underwent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for obstructive jaundice. Selective bile duct cannulation was unsuccessful because of periampullary diverticula (PAD). A pancreatic spontaneous dislodgement stent (PSDS) (5F diameter, 3 cm, straight type) was inserted to prevent post-ERCP pancreatitis. Three days after ERCP, she complained of abdominal pain, and computed tomography revealed retroperitoneal perforation because of PSDS migration to the PAD. If the papillary orifice is observed at the diverticular rim or in the diverticula, a pigtailed PSDS on the duodenal side or flanged stent on the pancreatic ductal side should be inserted in order to prevent this rare adverse event...

Jaundice in children is more often due to hepatic disease than obstruction. Differential considerations for obstructive jaundice in children include choledocholithiasis, choledochal cysts and rare neoplasms. Rhabdomyosarcoma, the most common soft tissue sarcoma in pediatric patients, typically involves the head and neck, genitourinary system and extremities. Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the biliary tree is a rare entity. We present a 3-year-old boy with abrupt onset obstructive jaundice. Although initial imaging suggested a dilated biliary system with fusiform common bile duct, sludge, and possible cholelithiasis, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatogram (ERCP) diagnosed a common bile duct embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma and further imaging showed involvement of the cystic duct...

AIM: Endoscopic management of malignant hilar biliary obstruction (MHBO) remains challenging with relatively poor jaundice control and high infectious risk. The factors which affect the outcome of endoscopic therapy are still unclear. This retrospective cohort study was aimed to investigate predictive factors for the outcomes of biliary stenting in the setting of MHBO. METHODS: Between June 2015 and June 2016, consecutive patients with MHBO received primarily endoscopic stenting and completed follow-up at our institution were identified and their data were collected and evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Malignant obstructive jaundice is a common problem in the clinic. Currently, the generally applied treatment methods are percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) and endoscopic biliary drainage (EBD). Nevertheless, there has not been a uniform conclusion published on either efficacy of the two types of drainage or the incidence rate of complications. Therefore, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies comparing endoscopic versus percutaneous biliary drainage in malignant obstructive jaundice, to determine whether there is any difference between percutaneous and endoscopic biliary drainage, with respect to efficacy and incidence rate of overall complications...

Nafcillin-induced acute liver injury is a rare and potentially fatal complication that has been known since the 1960s but inadequately studied. At this time, the only proven treatment is early discontinuation of the drug. Because of the high prevalence of nafcillin class antibiotic use in the United States, it is important for clinicians to have a high clinical suspicion for this diagnosis. We present a case of liver failure attributable to nafcillin use in a 68-year-old male with a history methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus and L3/L4 osteomyelitis...

Hemobilia is caused by the abnormal connection between a blood vessel and the bile duct, which is usually iatrogenic and caused by hepatobiliary procedures. The classic triad of hemobilia includes biliary colic, obstructive jaundice, and gastrointestinal bleeding. We present the case of an 80-year-old man who had laparoscopic cholecystectomy complicated by hemobilia. He had an unusual presentation of hemobilia in the form of transient vasovagal episodes in addition to abdominal pain and hematochezia.

Riccardo Superina
Biliary atresia (BA) is one of the most common indications for liver transplantation in children. Despite advances in biliary atresia surgical techniques, most children will ultimately require liver transplantation. Possible pre-operative predictors of outcome after the Kasai operation are: 1. Age at operation 2. Presence of the biliary atresia splenic malformation syndrome (BASM) 3. Center specific factors 4. Liver histology and 5. Anatomic pattern of bile ducts found at surgery.Age at surgery is considered a strong predictor of success after portoenterostomy...

We report the case of a 46-year-old female who presented to the Emergency Department with acute, painful obstructive jaundice, with evidence of secondary ascending cholangitis. Surprisingly, imaging revealed the clinical picture to be caused not by hepatobiliary pathology, but by external compression of the biliary tree from a ruptured renal angiomyolipoma (AML) of the right kidney. The patient remained haemodynamically stable and conservative management saw resolution of biliary obstruction. We believe this to be the first report of a renal AML presenting in this way...

Veno-occlusive disease of the liver is mostly encountered as a complication of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation with myeloablative regimens with an incidence estimated to be 13.7%. It is clinically characterized by tender hepatomegaly, jaundice, weight gain and ascites. Strong clinical suspicion and an early recognition of clinical signs are essential to establish the diagnosis and institute effective regimen. Another complication of cytotoxic drugs given for cancers, is development of busulfan-induced lung injury...

Desmoid type fibromatosis (DTF) is a rare, locally invasive, non-metastasizing soft tissue tumor. We report an interesting case of DTF involving the pancreatic head of a 54-year-old woman. She presented with intermittent dysphagia and significant weight loss within a 3-mo period. Laboratory findings showed mild elevation of transaminases, significant elevation of alkaline phosphatase and direct hyperbilirubinemia, indicating obstructive jaundice. Computerized tomography of the abdomen revealed a mass in the head of the pancreas, dilated common bile duct, and dilated pancreatic duct...
