ANALYSIS OF HISTORICAL MEDICAL RECORDS OF CALIFORNIA CONDORS ( GYMNOGYPS CALIFORNIANUS) ADMITTED FOR LEAD EXPOSURE TO THE LOS ANGELES ZOO AND BOTANICAL GARDENS BETWEEN 1997 AND 2012: A CASE SERIES STUDY.

J Zoo Wildl Med 2018 Dec;49(4):902-911

Lead toxicosis remains the primary cause of death in wild populations of California condors ( Gymnogyps californianus). Many condors require medical intervention with lead chelation therapy, among other conservation measures, to survive in the wild. An analysis of historical medical records of California condors admitted for lead exposure to the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens (LA Zoo) between 1997 and 2012 was performed to investigate clinical presentation, radiographic findings, and treatment along with the potential impact of these factors on recovery and successful release back into the wild.

Rationale: Intragastric bezoar is a stony mass found trapped in the stomach, though it can occur in other locations of the gastro-intestinal tract. The etiology of intragastric bezoar is multifactorial, includes certain risk factors and predisposing factors such as coexisting medical disorders, anatomic abnormalities, and gastric motility disorders, which contribute to the development of intragastric bezoar.

Patient Concerns: In this report, we present a rare case of intragastric bezoar with epigastric pain after prolonged consumption of jujubes. Read More

Phytobezoar and duodenal ulcer as complication of Duodopa therapy in a patient affected by Parkinson's disease.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Jun 29;2018. Epub 2018 Jun 29.

ASL 1 Avezzano Sulmona l'Aquila, Neurology Unit, San Salvatore Hospital, L'Aquila, Italy.

Continuous duodenal infusion of levodopa/carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) is an established treatment to control motor fluctuations in Parkinson's disease. Duodenal infusion allows a steady absorption of the drug in the small bowel, reducing plasmatic fluctuations of levodopa. Some complications may occur during the treatment, often related to intrajejunal percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG-J). Read More

Unusual foreign body impacted in the upper oesophagus: original technique for transoral extraction.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Jun 27;2018. Epub 2018 Jun 27.

Department of Surgery, IRCCS Policlinico San Donato, Università degli Studi di Milano, Milano, Italy.

Foreign body ingestion is a common event; in the adult population, most ingestions occur in patients with mental disability, psychiatric disorders, alcohol intoxication or in prisoners seeking secondary gain. Removal through flexible endoscopy is generally the first-line approach but rescue oesophagotomy may be necessary for foreign bodies impacted in the upper oesophagus. A 27-year-old man was admitted in the emergency room after intentional ingestion of a wooden spherical object with a central hole. Read More

Analysis of Radiopaque Gastrointestinal Foreign Bodies Expelled by Spontaneous Passage in Children: A 15-Year Single-Center Study.

Front Pediatr 2018 12;6:172. Epub 2018 Jun 12.

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Pediatrics, Chang Gung Children's Medical Center, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, College of Medicine, Chang Gung University, Taoyuan, Taiwan.

Most ingested foreign bodies (FBs) pass spontaneously through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, but only limited data on transit time are available. We evaluated the relationship of FB size and shape with transit time. We retrospectively reviewed medical records collected over 15 years (January 2001 to December 2015) on pediatric patients with radiopaque FBs in the GI tract. Read More

Multiple magnet ingestion causing instestinal obstruction and entero-enteric fistula: Which imaging modality besides radiographs? A case report.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2018 Jul 30;31:29-33. Epub 2018 May 30.

Dept of Pediatric Surgery. University Hospital of Heraklion, Crete, Greece.

Ingested foreign bodies occur in children younger than 3 years and pass uneventfully through the gastrointestinal tract. However, multiple magnet ingestion are associated with serious complications. A 9-year old male with abdominal pain and vomiting 3 days prior to admission, underwent abdominal radiographs showing radiopaque foreign bodies. Read More

Hepatic Abscess Induced by Fish Bone Migration: Two Case Reports.

Acta Med Port 2018 May 30;31(5):276-279. Epub 2018 May 30.

Serviço de Medicina Interna A. Centro Hospitalar e Universitário de Coimbra. Coimbra. Portugal.

Although foreign body ingestion is a common occurrence, perforation and penetration of the gastrointestinal tract is unusual and the development of a hepatic abscess is even more rare. The authors describe two cases of fish bone perforation of the gastrointestinal tract with hepatic perforation and abscess formation, from distinctive age groups and varying presentation, although both developed septic shock. The lack of history of ingestion of foreign bodies, non-specificity of both clinical presentation and complementary examinations all play a role in delaying the diagnosis and therefore in the prognosis itself.

A Woman with Black Beads in Her Stomach: Severe Gastric Ulceration Caused by Yttrium-90 Radioembolization.

Case Rep Med 2018 15;2018:1413724. Epub 2018 Apr 15.

Division of Medical Education, The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, RI, USA.

Radioembolization (RE) is a selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) delivering targeted, high-dose, intra-arterial radiation directly to the vascular supply of liver tumors. Complications can occur due to aberrant deposition or migration of radiation microspheres into nontarget locations, including normal hepatic parenchyma, lungs, pancreas, and upper gastrointestinal (UGI) tract. We report a case of gastric ulcers due to yttrium-90 (Y) seed migration to the stomach to alert clinicians to this rare cause of gastric injury. Read More

Rectal Foreign Body of Eggplant Treated Successfully by Endoscopic Transanal Removal.

Case Rep Gastroenterol 2018 Jan-Apr;12(1):189-193. Epub 2018 Apr 26.

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Internal Medicine, Hyogo College of Medicine, Nishinomiya, Japan.

Transanal rectal foreign body implies that a foreign body has been inserted transanally due to sexual orientation or other reasons and cannot be removed. Such cases require emergency measures because foreign bodies often present difficulties in manual removal or endoscopic removal and may even require surgery when peritonitis due to gastrointestinal perforation occurs. We report a patient in our hospital who had a rectal foreign body inserted into the deep part of the proctosigmoid that could be removed endoscopically. Read More

An oesophageal spring.

3 Pediatric Emergency Unit, S. Orsola-Malpighi Hospital, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy.

Oesophageal foreign bodies (OFBs) are a relatively common emergency in young children. OFBs are complicated by significant morbidity and mortality because their ingestion often occurs without witnesses, leading to a delay in diagnosis and treatment. We report an occult OFB in an 11-month-old infant who initially presented without any specific respiratory symptoms, mimicking a respiratory infection. Read More

A Fatal Outcome of Pica Syndrome: An Unusual Case of Delayed Mortality.

Am J Forensic Med Pathol 2018 Sep;39(3):261-263

Clinic for Mental Disorders "Dr Laza Lazarevic," Belgrade, Serbia.

We present the case of a 42-year-old man, with a medical history of schizophrenic psychosis, who was found dead on the floor of his bedroom. At the autopsy, a bottle lid with a notched edge was found in the lower pharynx, partially obstructing the larynx and thus keeping the epiglottis in an open position. Airway obstruction was caused by edema and inflammation of the surrounding tissue. Read More
