BACKGROUND: It is often stated that if a patient presents with 'painless rectal bleeding' then a rectal polyp is the probable diagnosis. The aim of this study is to review our experience of children undergoing endoscopy to assess if the above statement is correct. METHODS: The senior author keeps a prospective database of every child undergoing flexible sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy. As part of this database, the symptoms and signs that the patient presents with, specifically abdominal pain, diarrhoea, mucous per rectum and rectal bleeding, are recorded...

Graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) is a major complication of allogeneic stem cell transplantation. High-resolution in vivo histology of the intestine by confocal endomicroscopy (CEM) detects acute GvHD (aGvHD) with high sensitivity. This pilot study aims to evaluate the diagnostic value of CEM for intestinal chronic GvHD (cGvHD). The study included 20 patients with gastrointestinal symptoms and confirmed cGvHD in other organs as well as 20 patients with clinically suspected acute GvHD for control. Confocal endomicroscopy was performed as gastroscopy followed by sigmoidoscopy after intravenous injection of fluorescein (10%) and topical application of acriflavine (0...

A 57-year-old man presented with native mitral valve endocarditis caused by Lactococcus garvieae, a known animal pathogen that is increasingly being reported as a cause of human infections. The organism was cultured in four sets of blood cultures and identification was initially made by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation-time of flight mass spectrometry and confirmed by 16S rDNA PCR of the blood culture isolate. He was successfully treated with 6 weeks of both amoxicillin and gentamicin and underwent valve replacement surgery after 4 weeks of antimicrobial treatment...

RATIONALE: Psoas abscesses generally arise from a contiguous intra-abdominal or pelvic infectious process or hematogenous spreading of bacteria. The serum β-human chorionic gonadotropin has been used to detect normal or ectopic pregnancy. It also can be utilized in following up carcinomas. PATIENT CONCERNS: Here, we reported a case of a 47-year-old woman who presented with a left psoas mass presumptively diagnosed as an abscess secondary to lumbar tuberculosis In addition, the patient had abnormal increase of β-human chorionic gonadotropin...

INTRODUCTION AND AIM: In the treatment of colorectal endometriosis a multidisciplinary laparoscopic resection is suggested, for this reason the correct selection of bowel infiltration is essential before surgery. PATIENTS AND METHOD: Between 2009 and 2015, 383 sigmoidoscopies were performed in patients with endometriosis. Where mucosal invasion was absent secondary signs (wall rigidity, impression, kinking, pain during the examination, suffusion) were analysed. In endoscopically confirmed cases multidisciplinary surgery was performed, the remaining patients were operated by a gynecologic team only...

A mesenteric cyst is rare intra-abdominal pathology, with little literature to guide us on how to diagnose and manage it. We report the incident of a 57-year-old female who had an incidental finding of a sigmoid mesenteric cyst whilst undergoing an operation under the care of the Gynaecologists. A computed tomography scan and a flexible sigmoidoscopy followed to help diagnose the lesion as a cyst. A month later the 10 × 15 cm(2) cyst was excised laparoscopically with no complications.

BACKGROUND: There is no consensus on the relationship between patient sex and the location, stage, and oncologic outcome of colon cancer (CC). We hypothesized that there is a sex-specific difference in the biology and management of CC. STUDY DESIGN: Our cohort was drawn from a database of patients enrolled in international trials of nodal ultrastaging for nonmetastatic CC. These trials required strict adherence to surgical and pathologic quality measures. Postoperative follow-up included colonoscopy at 1 and 4 years and annual CT scans...

Cancer screening rates among Latinas are generally low, reducing the likelihood of early cancer detection in this population. This article examines the effects of a community intervention (Fe en Acción/Faith in Action) led by community health workers (promotoras) on promoting breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screening among churchgoing Latinas. Sixteen churches were randomly assigned to a cancer screening or a physical activity intervention. We examined cancer knowledge, barriers to screening and self-reported mammography, clinical breast exam, Pap test, fecal occult blood test and sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy at baseline and 12 months follow-up...

The American Society of Nephrology recommends against routine cancer screening among asymptomatic patients receiving maintenance dialysis on the basis of limited survival benefit. To determine the frequency of colorectal cancer screening among patients on dialysis and the extent to which screening tests were targeted toward patients at lower risk of death and higher likelihood of receiving a kidney transplant, we performed a cohort study of 469,574 Medicare beneficiaries ages ≥50 years old who received dialysis between January 1, 2007 and September 30, 2012...

OBJECTIVE: There is controversy whether constipation as a primary presenting complaint is an indication for diagnostic colonoscopy. CT colonography (CTC) is a less invasive and more acceptable alternative. We compared the completion and sensitivity of colonoscopy with CTC in patients who presented with the primary symptom of constipation. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted which examined the first 100 colonoscopies and 100 CTCs carried out for the primary symptom of constipation from June 2012 to December 2013...
