Multiple ulcerations and perforation in the small intestine after steroid treatment in eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis: a case report and literature review.

Cardiovasc Pathol 2020 Jul - Aug;47:107193. Epub 2019 Dec 18.

Department of Cellular and Organ Pathology, Graduate School of Medicine, Akita University, Akita, Japan.

Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA), formerly called Churg-Strauss syndrome, is an uncommon disease with pathological features consisting of systemic necrotizing vasculitis, eosinophilic infiltration, and granulomatous or nongranulomatous extravascular eosinophilic inflammation. EGPA preferentially affects certain organ systems, including the airways, peripheral nerves, heart, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract. Although gastrointestinal involvement, such as ulcerations, is common in EGPA, gastrointestinal perforation is relatively uncommon and is associated with a poor prognosis. Read More

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

Eosinophilic ulcer of the oral mucosa (EUOM) is a rare, benign, self-resolving lymphoproliferative disorder, which typically presents with asymptomatic to mildly tender ulcers. Histological findings of EUOM are characterized by a polymorphic infiltrate with many eosinophils often extending into the underlying muscle. Although this entity is well documented within the dental literature, it is not well known to physicians. Read More

Localized Gastric Amyloidosis with Kappa and Lambda Light Chain Co-Expression.

Clin Endosc 2018 May 26;51(3):285-288. Epub 2017 Oct 26.

Department of Internal medicine, Digestive Disease Research Institute, Wonkwang University College of Medicine, Iksan, Korea.

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy for cancer screening was performed in a 55-year-old woman as part of a health screening program, and revealed a depressed lesion approximately 20 mm in diameter in the lesser curvature of the mid-gastric body. Several biopsy specimens were collected as the lesion resembled early gastric cancer; however, histopathologic evaluation revealed chronic active gastritis with an ulcer and amorphous eosinophilic material deposition. Congo red staining identified amyloid proteins, and apple-green birefringence was shown using polarized light microscopy. 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 ulcer of the tongue masquerading as malignant ulcer: An unexplored distinct pathology.

J Oral Maxillofac Pathol 2017 May-Aug;21(2):321

Department of Oral Pathology and Microbiology, Saraswati Dental College, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Eosinophilic ulcer (EU) is a rare self-limiting chronic benign ulcerative lesion of the oral mucosa often misdiagnosed as oral malignancy. Its etiopathogenesis is ambiguous, but trauma plays an important role in the development. Microscopically, it is characterized by a polymorphic inflammatory infiltrate with a prominent eosinophilic component and large mononuclear cells extending deep into the submucosa, underlying muscle and salivary glands.

Service de gastroentérologie et hépatologie, HUG, 1211 Genève 14.

This article aims to detail the major innovations occurred in Gastro-enterology in 2016, including the introduction of a new molecule, the vonoprazan, for the treatment of refractory gastroesophagal reflux disease (GERD) and a new way of eradication of H. pylori. The possibility to use an intermittent dose of PPI rather than continuously in severe gastric and duodenal ulcers after successful endoscopic hemostasis is also discussed as well as the withdrawal of corticosteroids in the treatment of autoimmune pancreatitis.

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.
