Sections of tubular adenomas (n = 40), ulcertive colitis (n = 97) and hyperplastic polyps (n = 31) were examined by immunoperoxidase staining to carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) in order to assess its potential diagnostic value in predicting malignant potential of these lesions. We compared the degree of epithelial abnormality in these mucosal specimens with the extent of immunoperoxidase staining for CEA. We found that CEA staining correlated with the degree of epithelial alteration in tubular adenoma and ulcerative colitis groups...

The purpose of the paper is to demonstrate the usefulness of total parenteral hyperalimentation in a lactant, 4 months old patient with ulcerative colitis. At admission the lactant had diarrhea, dehydratation, anemia, malnutrition, and edema in the ankles. Proctoscopy and barium enema, and rectal biopsy were typical of ulcerative colities. Treatment included steroids and azulfidine. Evolution was poor and signs of perforation appeared. Total intravenous hyperalimentation was used and after one month the diarrhea disappeared and the patient gained weight...

The growth of 37 children with ulcerative colitis have been analyzed. While conventional growth charts showed only percentile changes in height, height data plotted on Tanner et al.'s growth charts showed increases and decreases in growth velocity. Growth retardation is a prominent complication of ulcerative colitis with onset on bowel symptoms. Both ulcerative colitis and "high-dose" steroid therapy (greater than 12 mg/sq m/day of cortisol) can hinder growth but in some instances there is a growth spurt after high-dose steroid therapy...

A case of localized giant pseudopolyposis in ulcertative colitis is discussed in which a mass effect mimicked tumor. The fulminant collection of pseudopolyps was palable in the epigastrium on physical exam and caused a partial obstruction to the retrograde flow of barium. Carcinoma is a worrisome possibility in ulcerative colitis, but localized giant pseudopolyposis may also present as a mass.
