Abstract Etiology of ascites of unknown origin varies with geographic area and ethnic origin. Tuberculous peritonitis and peritoneal carcinomatosis constitute a considerable proportion of patients. Differentiation between both is a major challenge. The role of omental thickness (OT) by ultrasonography to predict risk of malignancy in unexplained ascites. This prospective study was done at Kasr Alainy School of Medicine, Cairo University and included 100 adults with unexplained ascites and thickened omentum (>15 mm) on ultrasonography. An expert performed ultrasonography to assess peritoneum and peritoneal ...

Authors: Misiakos EP, Gouloumi AR, Schizas D, Damaskou V, Tsapralis D, Farrugia FA, Machairas N, Papaconstantinou D, Tzaneti A, Machairas A Abstract The present report describes the case of an 81-year-old woman who underwent an emergency explorative laparotomy due to small bowel perforation. Diffuse feculent peritonitis due to perforation of the jejunum was identified. In addition, six distinct tumors of the jejunum in close proximity to the perforation site, as well as two more lesions caudally at the ileum, were identified. A separate stenotic tumor was identified at the sigmoid colon, causing moderate dilatation...

Conclusion: Prognosis of SBP in HCC patients is relatively less severe. This result may be related with reduced antibiotics resistance and lower development rates of other complications, such as hepatic encephalopathy. Degree of systemic inflammation may be the most important factor for in-hospital mortality. PMID: 30584413 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: A review of the literature reveals that primary resection and anastomosis for left-sided obstructing CRC is the correct therapeutic strategy in low risk patients with localized, resectable carcinoma, without peritonitis; Hartmann's procedure should be adopted in doubtful cases and in high risk patients.

​BY GREGORY TAYLOR, DO, &SHERIF EL-ALAYLI, DOA 60-year-old man with a significant history of alcohol abuse, metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma, and cirrhosis presented to the emergency department complaining of vomiting up bright red blood. The patient was reportedly supposed to have an esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) six months earlier but failed to follow up.He had two episodes of melena the night before and two episodes of hematemesis that morning. He was also experiencing fatigue, weakness, and abdominal pain, which he described as achy and localized to the epigastric region. He had refused treatment for his he...

Rationale: Ovarian cancer has the poorest prognosis of the gynecological cancers. Early diagnosis and treatment are important, but early-stage ovarian carcinoma has nonspecific symptoms. Ultrasonography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and serum CA-125 levels can be helpful but may not elucidate cases of diffuse peritoneal diseases mimicking carcinomatosis. Patient concerns: The patient had intermittent abdominal discomfort and dysuria. Abdominal-pelvic computed tomography findings were suspicious for peritoneal tuberculosis (TB) and a small cystic mass in the left ovary. The CA-125 values were normal...

Introduction: Peritoneal angiosarcoma is an extremely rare sarcoma (0.01287% incidence per 100,000) with an aggressive course and a poor prognosis. In this case, the manifestation of peritoneal angiosarcoma was ascites, which caused difficulty in early diagnosis and the diagnosis of peritoneal angiosarcoma, was made only after the surgery. Patient concerns: A 61-year-old man working in Mainland China presented with a 1-month history of abdominal distension. A contrast-enhanced abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan revealed peritoneal carcinomatosis with massive ascites. However, his tuberculosis (TB) polymerase chai...

Rationale: High fat diets(HFDs) are recommended for cancer patients due to the preservation of normal fat metabolism even in advanced cancers. However, a lard based high fat diet, as a standard HFD for animal studies, worsened survival in a murine Panc02 induced carcinomatous peritonitis model. Here we examined influences of different types of fat on cancer immunity.
