The Role of Proton Pump Inhibitors in the Management of Upper Gastrointestinal Disorders.

Gastroenterol Hepatol (N Y) 2018 Mar;14(3):169-175

Dr Khan is a third year gastroenterology fellow and Dr Howden is the Hyman Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Division of Gastroenterology at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, Tennessee.

Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) have been in use since the early 1990s and play a crucial role in the management of a number of conditions affecting the upper gastrointestinal tract, including gastroesophageal reflux disease, Barrett esophagus, eosinophilic esophagitis, and dyspepsia. PPIs also play an important role in the treatment of infection and in the prevention of upper gastrointestinal tract ulcers and bleeding among patients taking antiplatelet therapy and/or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Despite recent concerns regarding the long-term safety of PPIs, their risk-benefit profiles strongly favor their appropriate use in patients who have genuine indications for them. Read More

Recurrent Oral Eosinophilic Ulcers of the Oral Mucosa. A Case Report.

Open Dent J 2018 29;12:19-23. Epub 2018 Jan 29.

Department of Stomatology, Oral Medicine Division, School of Dentistry, University of São Paulo, São Paulo, SP. Brazil.

Objective: This article describes a case of an Oral Eosinophilic Ulcer (OEU) in an otherwise healthy 31-year-old white woman.

Introduction: The importance of reporting this case was the presence of recurrent episodes with lesions appearing in different areas of the oral mucosa, a type of manifestation not commonly associated with this disease. A typical manifestation of OEU occurs as a single ulceration that goes into healing after an incisional biopsy, a procedure usually required for a proper diagnosis of the disease. Read More

Traumatic ulcerative granuloma with stromal eosinophilia: a malignant-appearing benign lesion.

Cutis 2017 Aug;100(2):E28-E31

Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center, San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium, Texas, USA.

Traumatic ulcerative granuloma with stromal eosinophilia (TUGSE) is an underreported diagnosis in dermatologic literature. Rapid expansion with an ulcerative clinical appearance often provokes fear of malignancy despite its benign nature. Traumatic ulcerative granuloma with stromal eosinophilia is thought to be a reactive tissue response to trauma, but CD30 mononuclear cells within a TUGSE lesion suggests the possibility of an underlying lymphoproliferative disorder.

Eosinophilic gastroenteritis; a report of two cases with different presentations.

Gastroenterol Hepatol Bed Bench 2017 ;10(Suppl1):S161-S164

Behbood Gastroenterology and Liver Diseases Research Center, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Eosinophilic gastroenteritis is a rare inflammatory disease, defined by infiltration of eosinophils in gastrointestinal (GI) tract, but the etiology of this disorder is unknown. Depends on the involvement region of Eosinophilic gastroenteritis, GI symptoms are variable including abdominal pain, malabsorption, gastric and duodenal ulcer. Due to its non-specific symptoms, the diagnosis is based on upper GI endoscopy followed by histopathological examination of the biopsies, which shows eosinophilic infiltration in different layers of GI tract.

Effective and safe proton pump inhibitor therapy in acid-related diseases - A position paper addressing benefits and potential harms of acid suppression.

BMC Med 2016 11 9;14(1):179. Epub 2016 Nov 9.

Division of Pharmacology, Department of Clinical & Experimental Medicine, University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy.

Background: The introduction of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) into clinical practice has revolutionized the management of acid-related diseases. Studies in primary care and emergency settings suggest that PPIs are frequently prescribed for inappropriate indications or for indications where their use offers little benefit. Inappropriate PPI use is a matter of great concern, especially in the elderly, who are often affected by multiple comorbidities and are taking multiple medications, and are thus at an increased risk of long-term PPI-related adverse outcomes as well as drug-to-drug interactions.

Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Médicas y Nutrición Salvador Zubirán, Ciudad de México, México.

Diet is considered an important triggering factor for gastrointestinal symptoms whose physiopathology includes not only measurable, inflammatory reactions, but also functional disorders, where no organic effects may be measured or demonstrated. Moreover, the prevalence of the perceived intolerance to certain foods ranges from 20-25% (within the general population) to 50-70% in diseases like irritable bowel syndrome. This intolerance has been observed particularly after the consumption of milk and dairy products, which are frequently considered as causative of gastrointestinal symptoms, thus limiting their ingestion.

Range of pathologies diagnosed using a minimally invasive capsule sponge to evaluate patients with reflux symptoms.

Histopathology 2017 Jan 12;70(2):203-210. Epub 2016 Oct 12.

MRC Cancer Unit, Hutchison-MRC Research Centre, Cambridge, UK.

Aims: Reflux symptoms are highly prevalent and non-specific; hence, in the absence of alarm symptoms, endoscopy referral decisions are challenging. This study evaluated whether a non-endoscopic Cytosponge could detect benign oesophageal pathologies and thus have future potential in triaging patients with persistent symptoms.

Methods And Results: Two complementary cohorts were recruited: (i) patients with reflux symptoms and no prior endoscopy (n = 409), and (ii) patients with reflux symptoms referred for endoscopy (n = 411). Read More

Eosinophilic esophagitis that develops during therapy with proton pump inhibitors : case series and possible mechanisms.

Acta Gastroenterol Belg 2016 Apr-Jun;79(2):245-50

Therapy with proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) results in remission in at least one third of patients with esophageal eosinophilia, presumably because of both their acid-related and anti-inflammatory mechanisms of action. However, eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) may also develop during therapy with PPIs. We present a case series of four children who were initially diagnosed with infectious esophagitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease or gastric ulcer, who had no eosinophilic infiltration of the esophagus, but subsequently developed symptoms, endoscopic features and histological picture of typical EoE.

"Russell Body Gastroenterocolitis" in a Posttransplant Patient: A Case Report and Review of Literature.

Int J Surg Pathol 2015 Dec 26;23(8):667-72. Epub 2015 Aug 26.

Western Connecticut Health Network, Danbury, CT, USA.

Russell bodies represent a cellular response to overstimulation of plasma cells, leading to the accumulation of abundant, nondegradable, condensed immunoglobulin in dilated rough endoplasmic reticulum cisternae. Russell body gastritis was first described 1998 by Tazawa and Tsutsumi. Since then only 39 cases involving the gastrointestinal tract have been reported in English literature, which include Russell body gastritis, duodenitis, and esophagitis. Read More

Non cardiac chest pain (NCCP) are recurrent angina pectoris like pain without evidence of coronary heart diesease in conventional diagnostic evaluation. The prevalence of NCCP is up to 70% and may be detected in this order at all levels of the medical health care system (general practitioner, emergency department, chest pain unit, coronary care). Reduction of quality of life in NCCP is comparable, partially even higher compared to cardiac chest pain. Read More

Eosinophilic ulcer of the tongue: a rare and confusing clinical entity.

BMJ Case Rep 2015 Apr 2;2015. Epub 2015 Apr 2.

Department of Oral Medicine and Maxillofacial Radiology, Farooqia Dental College and Hospital, Mysore, Karnataka, India.

Eosinophilic ulcers are rare, benign, reactive and often self-limiting lesions of the oral cavity. Although the aetiology is not clear, trauma is believed to play a role in their development. Clinically, the lesion manifests as an isolated ulcer, with raised, indurated borders and a yellow fibrinous floor; because of its long duration it often leads to the suspicion of squamous cell carcinoma.
