Kaio S Ferreira, Jason D Ferreira
Sporadic Burkitt's lymphoma can have a variety of clinical manifestations, including a constellation of gastrointestinal symptoms that can masquerade as other conditions and lead to a delay in diagnosis. Here we review a case of Burkitt's lymphoma in a patient with a history of Crohn's disease, initially thought to be a Crohn's flare on initial presentation. This case highlights the importance of keeping a broad differential and ruling out Crohn's mimics in the process of treating a presumed exacerbation of inflammatory bowel disease...

Background: Despite therapeutic advancements, gastric cancer (GC) remains a leading cause of death worldwide. Methods: This retrospective cohort study statistically analyzed the clinicopathologic characteristics, treatments and outcomes of patients with potentially resectable GC managed at our institution between 2006 and 2010. The STROBE checklist was applied. Results: Preoperative assessment of 164 GC patients (male: female ratio 1.87, median age 65 years) assigned 132 (80...

Background: The discovery of direct-acting antiviral agents (DAA) is an outstanding achievement of modern medicine in the current century. The current study aimed to explore the effectiveness and safety of two regimens sofosbuvir (SOF) in combination with either ribavirin (RBV) or simeprevir (SMV) in chronic hepatitis C (CHC) genotype (GT) 4 patients in Egypt. Methods: A total of 201 patients, treatment-naïve and experienced, with CHC GT4 infection were allocated into two groups based on the type of the regimen used...

Background: Intergenotypic recombinant hepatitis C virus (HCV) strains emerge rarely during coinfection of the same individual with two HCV genotypes. Few recombinant HCV strains have been identified to date and only one, CRF01 2k/1b, has become a worldwide concern. This study reevaluated the genotyping of three HCV genotype 2 strains from a group of patients with an unusually low rate of sustained virological response after pegylated interferon/ribavirin treatment. In addition, genetic determinants of host interferon resistance were evaluated...

Background: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is associated with acute exacerbations of ulcerative colitis (UC) but its clinical relevance remains uncertain. The primary aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of CMV infection in UC patients using viral polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis of mucosal biopsy samples. Secondary aims were to establish whether the disease was due to a primary infection or reactivation and to note associated risk factors and clinical outcomes. Methods: Since 2011, a policy of biopsy for CMV infection was adopted for severe UC patients in a large tertiary center...

Background: While patients with celiac disease have increasingly developed an atypical pattern of weight gain and obesity, the role of bariatric surgery remains unclear. The primary aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of bariatric surgery on clinical outcomes among hospitalized patients with celiac disease. Methods: The United States Nationwide Inpatient Sample database was queried for discharges with co-diagnoses of morbid obesity and celiac disease between 2004 and 2014...

Background: Autoimmune metaplastic atrophic gastritis (AMAG) is an immune-mediated process that may lead to pernicious anemia (PA) and an increased risk of gastric cancer. Although some literature supports 3- or 5-year endoscopic surveillance for gastric cancer in patients with PA, no formal guidance exists for the general AMAG population. We sought to identify the prevalence and incidence rates of dysplasia or adenocarcinoma in patients with AMAG in order to clarify endoscopic best practices...

Background: Helicobacter pylori ( H. pylori ) infection is acquired in early life and continues to have a high prevalence, especially in developing countries. Growing antibiotic-resistant strains necessitate adapted treatments. This study aimed to compare the efficacy, side effects, and influence of resistance of H. pylori strains between two different treatments. Methods: This prospective, randomized blind study enrolled 112 symptomatic children infected with H...

Background: Consensus guidelines recommend that in regions with a high rate of clarithromycin resistance, Helicobacter pylori ( H. pylori ) infection be treated with 4 drugs. Compliance with this recommendation among primary care physicians (PCPs) is low. We aimed to examine whether PCP compliance with H. pylori treatment recommendations increased following a targeted educational intervention. Methods: A questionnaire assessing H. pylori treatment was sent to >2000 PCPs in June 2015 and June 2018...

Background: Current treatment options for achalasia of the esophagus predominantly consist of endoscopic myotomy or laparoscopic myotomy combined with a partial fundoplication. The intraoperative use of conventional manometry has previously been proposed with various results. The aim of the present study was to introduce the use of high-resolution manometry (HRM) during surgical treatment for achalasia and to assess the long-term outcome of this technique. Methods: We enrolled achalasia patients within the time period November 2013 to July 2016 who underwent HRM and evaluation of Eckardt scores (ES) before and after tailored laparoscopic myotomy and fundoplication with intraoperative recording using HRM...

With the increase in the use of cross-sectional diagnostic imaging, there has been a concomitant rise in the rate of detected pancreatic cystic lesions. Recent years have seen the rise of newly developed therapeutic modalities to treat pancreatic lesions via ablation. Specifically, through the use of endoscopic ultrasound-guided therapy, endoscopists can potentially ablate these lesions safely and with minimally invasive techniques. In this manuscript we review 4 major endoscopic ultrasound-guided ablative therapies: radiofrequency ablation, ethanol injection, chemo ablation, and cryoablation...

Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) has evolved into a robust and efficient means for treating recurrent Clostridium difficile infection (CDI). Our narrative review looks at the donor selection, preparation, delivery techniques and cost-effectiveness of FMT. We searched electronic databases, including PubMed, MEDLINE, Google Scholar, and Cochrane Databases, for studies that compared the biological effects of donor selection, fresh or frozen fecal preparation, and various delivery techniques. We also evaluated the cost-effectiveness and manually searched references to identify additional relevant studies...

REVIEW
Daryl Ramai, Alexis Bivona, William Latson, Andrew Ofosu, Emmanuel Ofori, Madhavi Reddy, Douglas G Adler
Tracheoesophageal fistulas (TEF) are pathologic communications between the trachea and esophagus. TEF can lead to significant respiratory distress that may result in lethal respiratory compromise, often due to recurrent and intractable infections. Through the use of endoscopy, some TEF can be successfully repaired using different approaches depending on the size, location, availability, and experience of the treating endoscopist. The aim of this manuscript is to provide an up-to-date review of the endoscopic management of TEF for gastroenterologists...

Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is a relatively rare acute or chronic liver disease of unknown etiology characterized by large heterogeneity. Its distribution is global, covering all ages, both sexes and all ethnic groups. The aim of the present Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) of the Hellenic Association for the Study of the Liver was to provide updated guidance and help to gastroenterologists, hepatologists, internists and general practitioners for AIH diagnosis and management. AIH diagnosis is based on clinicopathological characteristics: namely, polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia, particularly of immunoglobulin G (IgG), circulating autoantibodies, interface hepatitis on liver histology, absence of viral hepatitis, and a favorable response to immunosuppression...
