Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor: GIST Another Duodenal Ulcer.
Conclusion: Initial EGD and CT findings could have easily been attributed to duodenal peptic ulcer disease for which follow-up endoscopy is not routinely recommended given the low risk of malignancy. However, because of the high index of suspicion on the part of the referring physicians, duodenal GIST was diagnosed. This case extends the spectrum of the presentation, evaluation, and diagnosis of GISTs and stresses the importance of keeping this rare disease on the provider's differential, even after routine workup shows no findings of tumor.

Authors: Heydenreich J, Schweter A, Lührmann P Abstract BACKGROUND: Bone density in the young-adult life is associated with risk for osteoporosis in later life. Next to genetic factors, lifestyle seems to play an important role for bone health. Purpose of the study was to clarify the relationship between various lifestyle factors and bone parameters in university students. METHODS: In 233 women and 52 men (age: 22.7±3.1 vs. 24.0±3.2 years; BMI: 22.2±2.9 vs. 24.2±3.1 kg∙m-2) the following parameters were assessed: calcaneal stiffness index (SI; quantitative ultrasound), body co...
We examined the reliability of a commercially available assay for S100B used on the same samples by two different laboratories separated by 2 years in time. METHODS AND PROCEDURES: A cohort of 163 adult patients (head CT-scanned, n = 110) with mild head injury were enrolled from the emergency department (ED). All had Glasgow Coma Scale scores of 14 or 15 in the ED (94.4% = 15). The mean time between injury and venous blood sampling was 2.9 h (SD = 1.4; Range = 0.5-6.0 h). Serum S100B was measured at two independent centers using the same high throughput clinical assay (Elecs...
We report a patient in whom the onset of pemphigus foliaceus was associated with initiation of imatinib mesylate adjuvant therapy in a patient with resected gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). Imatinib was continued because of the survival benefit to the patient with a resected, high risk GIST. Treatment with rituximab resulted in near resolution of his blistering rash and follow up enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) demonstrated reference range immunoreactivity for both desmoglein 1 and desmoglein 3. After dose increase of imatinib therapy owing to tumor growth, the patient subsequently again developed a similar...

Authors: Disoteo OE, Zampetti B, Garascia A, Attanasio R, Cozzi R Abstract A 24-yo female was admitted for acute renal failure, melanoderma, hyponatremia and hyperkalemia. The clinical suspicion of Addison's disease was confirmed by laboratory test and the appropriate replacement therapy with corticosteroids and fludrocortisone was started. In the mean-time primary hypothyroidism and diabetes mellitus type 1 were disclosed and treated, thus fulfilling a diagnosis of autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type 2. Eighteen months later she was admitted for right sided heart failure. The work-up allowed to diagnose pulmona...
