A 33-year-old woman, with HIV infection (CD4 count of 13 cells per μL; viral load of 1·2 × 106 copies per mL) and Mycobacterium tuberculosis diagnosed 2 months before, presented to the National Institutes of Health (Bethesda, MD, USA).

I met Paul Graham courtesy of one of his essays.  Then, we talked by phone and I read – no devoured – his book, In Memory of Bread: A Memoir. Pardon the pun. Paul is a professor of English Department at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY and on July 1 becomes Department Chair. He focuses on fiction and non-fiction creative writing and lives with his wife, Bec and their German shepherds. Paul, your book is the best description I’ve read about the challenges of being diagnosed with celiac. Can you summarize what happened? Given your experience, what recommendations would you have for clinicians? Sho...

While pain is not considered to be an indication for colonoscopy, many are performed to exclude significant pathology. Several reviews have reported abdominal pain to be the primary indication for colonoscopy in 13-20% of pediatric patients. The utility of colonoscopy in recurrent abdominal pain in children remains unclear.

Open access endoscopy can provide a timely and efficient service. Since 2011 we have provided an open access bidirectional endoscopy (BDE) service for iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) in our local catchment area. Inclusion criteria are age 50-79 years (and postmenopausal if female), ferritin ≤20 ng/ml, haemoglobin ≤13 g/dl for men and ≤11 g/dl for women. Exclusion criteria are too frail for full bowel prep or colonoscopy, IDA previously investigated, known active inflammatory bowel disease, known coeliac disease or positive tissue transglutaminase antibody result.
