We report a case of primary systemic ALK+ ALCL with a SC pattern that presented as secondary gastric lesions with a mixed LH and SC pattern that was masqueraded as inflammatory lesions. CASE REPORT: A 34-year-old woman with intractable epigastric pain was referred to have repeated endoscopy with biopsy. She was found to multiple gastric erosions and nodules that were diagnosed as inflammatory lesions both endoscopically and histologically. Meanwhile, she developed an acute onset of severe back pain associated with a pathologic compression fracture in the T3 thoracic vertebral body. Imaging studies disclosed a dissemina...

We report a case of a 46-year-old Chinese male who presented with six months history of abdominal pain, weight loss and rectal bleeding. Diagnostic colonoscopy revealed multiple aphthous ulcers within the ileo-caecal region and distal transverse colon, separated by normal mucosa, mimicking skip lesions of Crohn's colitis. Computer topography (CT) scan of the abdomen showed multiple circumferential thickenings involving predominantly the right colon. A clinical diagnosis of colonic Crohn's disease with possible perforation was made. An extended right hemicolectomy was performed due to uncontrolled rectal bleeding. Histopath...

Although the supraclavicular approach has been widely adopted for cervical rib resection, the required manipulation of critical nerves and vessels presents a significant risk to this operation. Transaxillary decompression avoids some of these concerns. We reviewed more than two decades of experience with decompression of the thoracic outlet in patients with complete cervical ribs using a transaxillary approach with video-assisted endoscopy.

Abstract In a preoperative anesthesia setting with integrated neuropsychology for individuals>64 years of age, we completed a pilot study examining the association between neurocognitive disorders with frequency of missed colonoscopies and quality of bowel preparation (prep). Gastroenterologists completed the Boston Bowel Preparation Scale (BBPS) for each patient. Of 47 older adults seen in our service, 68% met criteria for neurocognitive disorders. All individuals failing to attend the colonoscopy procedure had met criteria for major neurocognitive disorder. Poor bowel prep was also identified in 100% of indiv...

We present a narrative review of our data on the Tübingen palatal plate (TPP), which show the following: a) in a randomized trial, the TPP was superior to a sham procedure in alleviating UAO; b) children treated with the TPP in infancy showed an intellectual development within the reference range; c) prone positioning is no alternative, as it is ineffective and associated with an increased risk of sudden death; d) the TPP reduces the mixed-obstructive apnea index to near-normal values, both in isolated and most (83%) syndromic RS; e) of 443 infants (129 syndromic) treated with the TPP in our center, 23 ultimately rece...

Introduction: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) are both chronic inflammatory diseases with a big impact in the quality of life of the patients. It has been described a higher prevalence of HS among patients diagnosed with IBD, especially Crohn disease. Some drugs used in HS, such as antibiotics, can be harmful for IBD patients and they may trigger flare ups. Adalimumab is anti-TNF drug which is approved for the treatment of both diseases, being the doses similar in both disorders.

Background: The pathogenesis of psoriasis may involve a breakdown of immune tolerance to cutaneous microorganisms. Guttate and chronic plaque psoriasis are associated with Streptococcus pyogenes colonization. In addition, Crohn disease and periodontitis, two diseases due to immune activation in response to microbiota, have been reported at a higher incidence in patients with psoriasis.

Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a sterile, idiopathic, ulcerative, neutrophilic dermatosis that can be associated with trauma or systemic diseases. The lesion typically begins as a pustule that later progresses to an ulcer or deep erosion with violaceous undermined borders. Diagnosis of PG is based on histopathology as well as exclusion of other diagnoses. Approximately 50% of PG cases are associated with systemic diseases, which include inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), rheumatoid arthritis, and hematologic malignancies.
