We report a case of benign gastric ulcer with EBV infection confirmed by endoscopic and histological findings. PMID: 31013561 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusions: This study suggests that GPUs are strongly associated with H. pylori infection in Chinese children. Duodenal ulcers are the main type of GPU in patients older than 6 years. Appropriate diagnosis, treatment and follow-up are necessary for children with GPUs.
A 67-year-old gentleman with history of osteoarthritis on naproxen presented with chronic epigastric abdominal pain. Upper endoscopy 3 years before presentation for abdominal pain showed a clean-based, benign antral gastric ulcer with multiple clean-based duodenal ulcers. Heliobacter pylori testing was negative on biopsies. At that time, he was advised to stop using naproxen, and to start pantoprazole daily. A computerized tomography obtained at the time of this presentation showed a thickening in the gastric antrum questionable for ulcerative vs mass lesion.
CONCLUSIONS: We found no studies that provide the relative benefits and harms of medical versus surgical treatment for recurrent or refractory peptic ulcers. Studies that evaluate the natural history of recurrent and refractory peptic ulcers are urgently required to determine whether randomised controlled trials comparing medical versus surgical management in patients with recurrent or refractory peptic ulcers or both are necessary. Such studies will also provide information for the design of such randomised controlled trials. A minimum follow-up of two to three years will allow the calculation of the incidence of complica...
Conclusion It can be concluded that the prophylactic effect of the fractions on gastric ulceration in rats is associated with its high antioxidant activity and its ability to effectively inhibit the inflammation mediators. Presence of several flavonoids and gallic acid explains the effectiveness of the fractions in affording protection against gastric damages. Graphical abstract
