Rev Gastroenterol Peru 2018 Jul-Sep;38(3):280-284

Facultad de Medicina Humana, Universidad Nacional San Luis Gonzaga. Ica, Perú; Sociedad Científica de Estudiantes de Medicina de Ica (SOCEMI). Ica, Perú.

Gaucher disease is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disorder characterized by deficiency of beta-glucosidase that would lead to the accumulation of glucosylceramide mainly in cells of the mononuclear phagocytic system causing systemic effectations. We present a patient of twenty years who is suffering from chronic pain in the left hypochondrium with episodes of bleeding for 3 years and sensation of thermal rise, physical examination revealed jaundice and massive splenomegaly, without neurological involvement. Severe osteoporosis, pancytopenia, and the presence of portal vein thrombosis with cavernomatous transformation complicated by portal biliopathy simulating a klatskin tumor, marrow and enzymatic studies were compatible with Gaucher disease, were shown as unexpected findings.

Genome-Wide Sequencing Reveals Small Nucleolar RNAs Downregulated in Cerebral Cavernous Malformations.

Cell Mol Neurobiol 2018 Oct 10;38(7):1369-1382. Epub 2018 Jul 10.

International Neuroscience Institute, Rudolf-Pichlmayr-Strasse 4, 30625, Hannover, Germany.

Cerebral cavernous malformations (CCM) are vascular malformations associated with abnormally dilated blood vessels and leaky capillaries that often result in hemorrhages. Despite recent advances, precise understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanism leading to the pathogenesis of CCM remains elusive. Emerging evidence indicates that small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs), belonging to the class of non-coding RNAs, may play a significant role as diagnostic markers in human diseases. Read More

Utility of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography with perflubutane in evaluating indications for diagnostic percutaneous tumor biopsy in a case of hepatic sclerosed hemangioma.

Clin J Gastroenterol 2018 Dec 21;11(6):514-520. Epub 2018 Jun 21.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, 65 Tsuruma-cho, Showa-ku, Nagoya, 466-8550, Japan.

Sclerosed hemangioma is difficult to distinguish from intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma or liver metastasis due to their imaging resemblance, thus pathological diagnosis is often required; however, percutaneous biopsy entails a risk of dissemination if the tumor is malignant. Perflubutane, a contrast agent of ultrasonography, has a characteristic feature of being phagocytosed by Kupffer cells. Hepatic malignant lesions contain few or no Kupffer cells, therefore, they are shown as a contrast defect. Read More

A Novel CCM1/KRIT1 Heterozygous Nonsense Mutation (c.1864C>T) Associated with Familial Cerebral Cavernous Malformation: a Genetic Insight from an 8-Year Continuous Observational Study.

J Mol Neurosci 2017 Apr 2;61(4):511-523. Epub 2017 Mar 2.

Department of Neurosurgery, China National Clinical Research Center for Neurological Diseases, Beijing Tiantan Hospital, Capital Medical University, No. 6 Tiantan Xili, Dongcheng District, Beijing, 100050, China.

Cerebral cavernous malformation (CCM) is a congenital vascular abnormality that predominantly affects the central nervous system, but that sometimes encroaches other vital tissues, including the retina, skin, and even liver. The familial form of CCM (FCCM) is considered to be an autosomal dominant disease with incomplete penetrance and variable expression, which is often attributed to mutations in three genes: CCM1, CCM2, and CCM3. We screened a Chinese family diagnosed with FCCM by using Sanger sequencing. Read More

Pedunculated Hepatic Hemangioma Masquerading as a Peritoneal Tumor. A Case Report.

Pol J Radiol 2016 14;81:51-3. Epub 2016 Feb 14.

Department of Interventional Radiology, Polyclinique Les Fleurs, Ollioules, France.

Background: Although being classically located inside the liver parenchyma, hemangiomas may occasionally develop outside the extra-hepatic capsule, thus appearing as a pedunculated mass.

Case Report: We report the case of a 66-year-old anal cancer female patient presenting with an asymptomatic sub-hepatic mass. Incidental diagnosis of a pedunculated hepatic hemangioma was strongly suggested by the typical imaging features on computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) examinations, and was confirmed by histopathological examination.

Intraductal Sonography in Patients With Portal Cavernoma Cholangiopathy.

J Ultrasound Med 2016 Mar 22;35(3):651-9. Epub 2016 Feb 22.

Departments of Hepatology (V.B., S.M.S.) and Radiology (A.M.), Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Intraductal sonography generates high-resolution images of the entire length of the biliary tree and peribiliary tissues, including 3-dimensional dual- and muti-plane reconstructions to depict complex anatomy. Portal cavernoma cholangiopathy (previously called portal biliopathy) can have multiple etiologies of obstructive cholestasis in the same patient, which can be difficult to define even with advanced imaging techniques.We describe 2 difficult cases of portal cavernoma cholangiopathy in which intraductal sonography helped in clinical management decisions.
