Celiac disease is a chronic immune-mediated enteropathy in which dietary gluten induces an inflammatory reaction predominantly in the duodenum. Celiac disease is known to be associated with benign small bowel thickening and reactive lymphadenopathy that often regresses after the institution of a gluten-free diet. A 66-year-old male patient with celiac disease presented with abdominal pain and diarrheal illness. Computerized tomography of the abdomen revealed a duodenal mass. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration of the mass revealed bizarre stromal cells which represent a nonspecific tissue reaction to inflammation...

BACKGROUND: Approximately one-third of children with appendicitis present with advanced disease or perforation. Whereas this increases the risk for post-operative complications and re-admission, it is not yet possible to predict early on who will develop an abdominal abscess. We sought to identify specific risk factors for this complication, in an attempt to streamline post-operative care. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We reviewed the records of all cases of perforated appendicitis over a 12-month period at a tertiary children's hospital...
