Uterine adenomyosis with extensive glandular proliferation: case series of a rare imaging variant.

CONCLUSION: This case series suggests that there is a subgroup of uterine adenomyosis that shows a characteristic "fish-in-a-net" appearance on T2-weighted images. PMID: 32209513 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The myometrium is more frequently affected than the endometrium. Prolonged use of tamoxifen has been found to be associated with endometrial hyperplasia, endometrial polyp formation, and the development of endometrial adenocarcinoma in some cases.A 55-year-old lady with a history of invasive lobular carcinoma of the breast that had been operated upon with left mastectomy...

An 85-year-old woman was admitted  for examination of anemia and black stools. A blood test revealed a reduction in her hemoglobin level from 12.7 to 6.6 g/dL (7.9×103 to 4.1×103 mol/L) over a month, suggesting upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a large esophageal polyp near the esophagogastric junction (Figure 1). The polyp that was fragile was accidentally resected and removed endoscopically. Histopathological examination of the resected specimen revealed a hematoma containing numerous Enterococcus faecalis bacterial masses without epithelial tissue (Figure 2).

AbstractGastrointestinal bleeding (GIB) is among the major complications affecting implantable continuous-flow left ventricular assist device (iLVAD) recipients and is the major cause of re-hospitalization. GIB in iLVAD recipients is sometimes critical, and controlling bleeding using conventional approaches is difficult. A 35-year-old woman developed refractory GIB from multiple gastric polyps and de novo angiodysplasia after Jarvik2000® iLVAD implantation. Discontinuation of anticoagulation and antiplatelet therapies had little effect on GIB; thus, multiple endoscopic hemostatic therapies were performed. However, blee...

This study was carried out in accordance with approval of the Melbourne Health and Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research's Human Research Ethics Committee (approval number: 2013.081). All subjects gave written informed consent for participation and publication. Results and Discussion TGF-β signaling in NK cells is associated with: phosphorylation in SMAD2 and 3, inhibition of IL-15-induced metabolism/proliferation, simultaneous downregulation of CD44, CD49e, and Eomes, and upregulation of CD16 and CD49a expression (7, 10). SMAD family member 4 (SMAD4) belongs to the SMAD family of transcription...

Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS) is a well-described inherited syndrome, characterized by the development of gastrointestinal polyps, and characteristic mucocutaneous freckling. Development of small bowel intestinal polyps may lead to intussusception in children may require emergency laparotomy with potential loss of bowel. Gastrointestinal polyps may lead to bleeding and anemia. This European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition position paper provides a guide for diagnosis, assessment, and management of PJS in children and adolescents and guidance on avoiding complications from PJS or from the end...

Conclusion: This case illustrates the potential for metastatic RCC to involve the stomach and cause gastrointestinal bleeding and anemia. The case also illustrates the role of upper gastrointestinal endoscopy in diagnosing and treating metastatic causes of gastrointestinal bleeding. PMID: 30275795 [PubMed]

Authors: Kameda C, Miwa H, Kawabata R, Marukawa D, Murakami M, Noura S, Shimizu J, Hasegawa J Abstract An inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP) is a mesenchymal tumor of the gastrointestinal tract. IFPs in the small intestine are the most frequently detected with symptoms, such as abdominal pain and tarry stool due to intussusception. Accordingly, few studies have reported jejunal IFP as a cause of occult gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB) diagnosed via both of capsule endoscopy (CE) and double-balloon enteroscopy (DBE). A 68-year-old woman presented with a progression of anemia and a positive fecal occult blood test resu...
