Computed tomography and magnetic resonance enterography have become routine small bowel imaging tests to evaluate patients with established or suspected Crohn ’s disease, but the interpretation and use of these imaging modalities can vary widely. A shared understanding of imaging findings, nomenclature, and utilization will improve the utility of these imaging techniques to guide treatment options, as well as assess for treatment response and complicati ons. Representatives from the Society of Abdominal Radiology Crohn’s Disease-Focused Panel, the Society of Pediatric Radiology, the American Gastroenterological...

ConclusionsOur case questions whether granulomatous cheilitis really exists or is it simply a variant of Crohn ’s disease with only oral presentation. Our patient did not have symptoms of Crohn’s disease; moreover, endoscopic studies and computed tomography enterography were unremarkable for evidence of intestinal involvement. Our case is also the first reported case where high-dose infliximab alone has been used with sustained response for approximately 8 months. In conclusion, more research is needed to assess the underlying pathology as well as ideal treatment options for patients with orofacial granulo...

We sincerely appreciated the interest and the comments on our paper by Lopes et al. [1,2]. The authors refer about their interesting study including 29 newly diagnosed patients with active Crohn ’s disease (CD), all performing endoscopy and computed tomography enterography (CTE). After one year of follow-up, 6 out of 29 patients (20.7%) achieved the transmural healing (TH). Particularly, the authors put their attention on a new, interesting but unexplored, endpoint: the “extramural heal ing”, defined as the radiological remission of all signs of inflammation beyond mural findings (e.g.

CONCLUSION: At diagnostic laparoscopy, a linear foreign body resembling a wooden splinter was identified. It had partly migrated through the chronically inflamed bowel wall without causing perforation or abdominal contamination. It was removed laparoscopically without an enterotomy or bowel resection. Microscopy revealed non-viable bone, likely fish or chicken bone. The patient made an uneventful recovery and was discharged 3 days later. Herein we emphasise on the differential diagnosis and presentation of chronically ingested foreign bodies, as well as the feature of chronic ileitis with uncomplicated transmural migration...

​BY MARK GRANT, DO, &SARAH CARIGNAN, PA-CThe patient had been playing a round of golf a week earlier, and thought he had strained a muscle in his right lower back while swinging a golf club. The patient continued his golf workouts throughout the week, which included lifting weights and swinging a golf club with minimal pain.​The day prior to ED presentation, he began having worsening right-sided back pain, and began ibuprofen and ice treatment, which helped minimally. The patient woke up experiencing worsening back pain that radiated from his right flank to his right lower abdominal area. He reported increased pain...

ConclusionsIn this cohort study, body composition profiles did not correlate well with BMI. Myopenia was associated with primary nonresponse with potential implications for dosing and serves as an explanation for pharmacokinetic failure.

Publication date: Available online 6 July 2017 Source:Journal of Coloproctology Author(s): Aida Cristina Correia Oliveira Azevedo, Sandra Fátima Fernandes Martins Crohn disease is defined as a chronic inflammatory and idiopathic process that can affect any portion of the gastrointestinal tract. The small intestine is the most frequently affected place, so small bowel morphology investigation is often mandatory. For decades small bowel was almost inaccessible to endoscopies, and, studies like enteroclysis and bowel transit time test, were considered gold standard tests. Recently, innovative imaging techniques, impro...
