We describe Per Anal Endoscopic Rectopexy (PAER), a new treatment for complete rectal prolapse, which involves fixing the anterior rectal wall to the under-surface of the anterior abdominal wall and posterior rectal wall to the sacrum, through a submucosal tunnel (both endoluminally). This is a prospective single-centre pilot study done at a tertiary care centre. A total of 12 patients with a mean age of 48  years underwent the procedure. Constipation and incontinence were present in 8 and 4 patients, respectively and a significant improvement was seen in both following the procedure. A significant decrease in anorect...

We report a patient with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, who developed rheumatoid arthritis after exposure to natalizumab. While some multiple sclerosis therapies are known to unmask autoimmune conditions, natalizumab is rarely implicated as a cause of alternative autoimmunity. This case illustrates an unusual clinical scenario which may support recent scientific work suggesting that when natalizumab blocks T helper 1 cells from entering the central nervous system, T helper 17 cells may continue to migrate into immune-privileged spaces and cause pathologic inflammation.Brief Background: Multiple sclerosis (MS) pati...
