Breast cancer metastases to the gastrointestinal tract are rare, with a median time interval from the diagnosis of the primary tumor to metastasis up to 7 years. The stomach is the most frequent metastatic site and invasive lobular carcinoma is the type with the highest affinity to the digestive system. We report the case of an 84-year-old female patient, with a past medical history 20 years earlier of invasive lobular carcinoma of the breast, who presented for dyspepsia. Upper endoscopy revealed hypertrophic gastric folds compatible with primary linitis plastica...

Pancreatic pseudocysts are frequent complications of both acute and chronic pancreatitis. By contrast, pancreatico-pleural fistula is rare. Here we report a case of massive pleural effusion secondary to a fistula in the left hemi-diaphragm, between a pancreatic pseudocyst and the left pleura, in a patient with a right kidney tumor and bilateral massive pulmonary thromboembolism. This fistula developed after several episodes of un-investigated acute pancreatitis. The pleural effusion was treated by three thoracocenteses, without recurrence...

Gaucher Disease arises due to a deficiency in the enzyme glucocerebrosidase and is the most common lysosomal storage disease. This enzyme deficiency leads to the accumulation of glucocerebroside within macrophages (Gaucher cells) and the resulting infiltration of these cells into organs can cause clinical symptoms. There are three types of Gaucher Disease that differ based on the clinical course and the presence or absence of neurological involvement, but classically, Gaucher cell infiltrates impact a patient's spleen, liver, bone marrow and cortex...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Diverticular disease of the colon is a common clinical condition in developed countries, and is associated with significant (direct and indirect) economic burden. The aim of this Position Paper is to provide clinical guidance for appropriate definition, prevalence, risk factors, diagnosis, and treatment of colonic diverticular disease. METHODS: A working group of recognized experts established by the Board of the Romanian Society of Gastroenterology and Hepatology (RSGH) screened the literature and the available guidelines on colonic diverticular disease...

Nonalcoholic liver disease (NAFLD) is a hot topic for gastroenterologists and hepatologists and clinical practitioners must be kept abreast with the rapid progress of knowledge in this field. The Romanian Society of Gastroenterology and Hepatology (RSGH) has elaborated this review dedicated to evidence-based data on pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy of this condition. The term NAFLD includes two distinct conditions, with different histologic features and prognosis: non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFL) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), the second with the highest risk of evolution to cirrhosis and its complications, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)...

REVIEW
Cristian Tefas, Marcel Tantau
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Inflammatory bowel diseases are still difficult to diagnose and differentiate in some cases despite the serological, imaging, endoscopic and histopathological armamentarium. Raman spectroscopy is a technique that could help with these shortcomings. The aim of this paper is to present the accuracy of Raman spectroscopy in the diagnosis and monitoring of patients with inflammatory bowel diseases. METHODS: We identified the published manuscripts and abstracts up to the 31st of December 2017 by a systematic search of Medline, Embase, Cochrane and other trial registries...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Recent studies have suggested that nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) could be a predisposing factor for urolithiasis but the results have been inconsistent. This systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted with the aim to summarize all available data. METHODS: A comprehensive literature review was conducted using MEDLINE and EMBASE databases through March 2018 to identify all studies that compared the risk of urolithiasis among patients with NAFLD versus those without NAFLD...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Diseases of the digestive system substantially contribute to premature mortality of the Polish population. Years of Life Lost (YLLs) are more and more commonly used in order to evaluate social and economic aspects of these deaths. The aim of the study was to analyse YLLs due to diseases of the digestive system in Poland between 2000-2014. METHODS: The study material included a database which contained information gathered from 5,601,568 death certificates of Poles who died between 2000-2014...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: To evaluate the predictive factors for recurrence of the disease and overall survival (OS) after achieving complete response (CR) in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treated with transarterial chemoembolization (TACE). METHODS: From January 2013 to December 2017, 168 treatment-naïve patients diagnosed with HCC underwent TACE as a first-line therapy and the gathered data was retrospectively reviewed. We determined the predictive factors for complete response (CR), for recurrence after CR and for survival using the Cox proportional hazard model...

AIMS: To report on the long-term impact of tumor and non-tumor related parameters on local recurrence, distant recurrence and survival in patients with naïve or recurrent type hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treated by radiofrequency ablation (RFA). METHODS: We performed 240 RFA sessions on 133 patients with 156 HCC nodules developed on a background of liver cirrhosis and analyzed the outcomes. RESULTS: Contrast-enhanced ultrasound performed one month after RFA showed complete ablation in 119 out of 133 (89...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Rapid optimization of treatment algorithms and disease outcomes requires an objective measurement of disease activity in patients with Crohn's disease (CD). Our aim was to evaluate the impact of rapid-access to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on treatment optimization, clinical decision-making and outcomes for CD patients in a specialized tertiary care for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients. METHODS: A cohort of 75 referral CD patients (median age: 34, IQR: 25-43 years) who had underwent 90 fast-track MR enterography (MRE) scans between January 2014 and June 2016 were retrospectively enrolled...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Patient-reported outcomes and experiences are indicative of the impact and the quality of care. Thioguanine, a generic drug initially developed for leukemia, has been explored and relicensed as a certified treatment for patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). The patients' perception of this treatment has not been evaluated before. In this study, we aimed to assess self-reported experiences with thioguanine for IBD. METHODS: Questionnaires were sent out to members of the Dutch National Crohn's and Colitis patient organization...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Functional gastrointestinal disorders are prevalent worldwide and alterations of gut-brain axis and intestinal barrier integrity may play a pivotal role in both the pathophysiology and clinical course of these bowel malfunctions. We aimed to assess the prevalence of abdominal pain in a selected adult population of Poland to determine potential environmental factors associated with gastrointestinal complaints. METHODS: There were 1479 individuals - 657 women (44...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The increased oxidative stress plays an important role in gastro-duodenal ulcers and gastric cancer occurrence. We investigated the association between the genetic polymorphisms of genes encoding the antioxidative enzymes CAT, GPX and SOD and the occurrence of gastric lesions, considering also the environmental risk factors such as H. pylori infection, drug exposure, smoking and alcohol consumption. METHODS: We included 373 patients who underwent endoscopy for symptoms, anemia or bleeding investigation...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Previous genome-wide association studies showed that genetic polymorphisms in toll-like receptor 1 (TLR1) and protein kinase AMP-activated alpha 1 catalytic subunit (PRKAA1) genes were associated with gastric cancer (GC) or increased Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection susceptibility. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between TLR1 and PRKAA1 genes polymorphisms and H. pylori infection, atrophic gastritis (AG) or GC in the European population...
