Synchronous volvulus of the transverse and sigmoid colon: a rare case of large bowel obstruction.

Pan Afr Med J 2021 2;38:231. Epub 2021 Mar 2.

Department of Digestive Surgery, Hospital Ibn Tofaîl, University Hospital Center Mohammed VI, Marrakech, Morocco.

Colonic volvulus usually occurs as a single event that can affect various parts of the colon. The usual sites affected being the sigmoid colon (75%) and the caecum (22%). The phenomenon of multiple sites simultaneously undergoing volvulus is an extremely rare occurrence. We report a rare case of simultaneous sigmoid and transverse colon volvulus in a 52-year-old female. The clinical presentation and the radiological findings were that of large bowel obstruction. A subtotal colectomy and colocolic anastomosis were performed and the postoperative period was uneventful. Though rare the development of transverse and sigmoid volvulus in the same patient must always be considered in the differential diagnosis, when dealing with recurrent intermittent abdominal pain or acute intestinal obstruction.

Ileosigmoid knot in a patient with Down syndrome: a unique surgical emergency.

Pan Afr Med J 2021 5;38. Epub 2021 Jan 5.

Department of General Surgery, Ibn Tofail Hospital, Mohamed VI University Hospital, Cadi Ayad University, Marrakech, Morocco.

The ileosigmoid knot (ISK) or double ileosigmoid volvulus is a wrapping of the small intestine around the base of the sigmoid colon. We report an unusual case in the digestive surgery department of the Ibn Tofail Hospital of CHU Mohammed VI Marrakech of a 28-year-old man with Down's syndrome who presented with symptoms and signs of intestinal obstruction. Abdominal CT scan revealed a whirl sing and significant distension of the sigmoid loop. Exploratory laparotomy revealed ISK resulting in gangrene of ileum and sigmoid colon. The surgical procedure was a necrotic digestive segments resection, with a double-barrelled ileostomy and a Hartmann procedure. One month afterwards, the patient was operated on to reestablish of the continuity. Through this observation and a review of the literature we define the diagnostic, therapeutic and prognosis aspects of this rare clinical entity.

Calcified liver hydatid cyst compressing the gall bladder.

Arab J Gastroenterol 2011 Sep 21;12(3):166-7. Epub 2011 Apr 21.

Department of General Surgery, Caddi Ayyad University, Marrakech, Morocco.

A 48-year-old male patient was admitted to suffering from hydatid disease located in the gall bladder. Although Morocco remains an endemic area for echinococcosis, this presentation of the disease was rare. The pericyst was tightly attached to the liver. Complete pericystectomy with cholecystectomy was done. Histopathology confirmed the presence of a calcified hydatid cyst of the gall bladder. Perioperative adjuvant medical therapy with albendazole was administered. After a 2-year follow-up, no recurrence occurred.

Tuberculous appendicitis.

Saudi J Gastroenterol 2011 Jul-Aug;17(4):287-8

Department of General Surgery, Mohammed VI Hospital, Marrakesh, Morocco.

Gastrointestinal tuberculosis is quite rare, representing only 3% of all extrapulmonary cases. Involvement of the appendix is rare, only occurring in about 1% of cases. It is usually secondary to tuberculosis elsewhere in the abdomen. A prompt diagnosis depends on a high index of suspicion as clinical signs may be nonspecific and microbiological confirmation is difficult. Histopathologic examination is often the only way to reach a diagnosis and to establish specific antibiotic therapy. In these cases, due to the absence of specific symptoms and signs, the diagnosis is delayed until after surgery.

Primary anal mucinous adenocarcinoma: a case series.

Arab J Gastroenterol 2011 Mar 5;12(1):48-50. Epub 2011 Feb 5.

Gastroenterology Department, UHC Mohamed VI Qaddi Ayyad University, Marrakech, Morocco.

Primary mucinous adenocarcinoma is a rare malignancy of the anus (3% of anal cancers), the pathogenesis of which is better understood by immunohistochemistry. We reviewed cases of primary mucinous adenocarcinoma of the anus from 2000 to 2009 in the Hepatogastroenterology Department of the University Hospital Centre of Marrakech. Three cases were identified who were males with the mean age of 68years, and presented with a chronic anal fistula. Two cases had anal pain. Clinical examination revealed multiple fistulae in two cases with a secretion simulating 'cooked grains of tapioca'. Diagnosis was confirmed by histopathology and immunohistochemical profile (CK7 positive/CK20 negative). Imaging revealed a retro-rectal collection with thickening of the anal wall without metastasis (two cases). One patient underwent abdominoperinal resection without recurrence.
