Congenital sigmoid mesocolic defect as a cause of neonatal intestinal obstruction.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Aug 28;12(8). Epub 2019 Aug 28.

Division of Neonatology, Department of Pediatrics, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Delhi, India.

Internal herniation through congenital sigmoid mesocolic defect as a cause of neonatal intestinal obstruction is rarely reported. Clinical judgement combined with judicious use of investigations and prompt exploration is essential to provide immediate relief of the obstruction and salvage the herniated loop of bowel, which otherwise might lead to morbidity and even death. We present a neonate with internal herniation of the ileum through a congenital mesocolic defect which was diagnosed by a prompt abdominal exploration in view of persistent clinical signs of intestinal obstruction.

Assessment of Crohn's disease-associated small bowel strictures and fibrosis on cross-sectional imaging: a systematic review.

Gut 2019 06 3;68(6):1115-1126. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Department of Inflammation and Immunity, Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

Patients with Crohn's disease commonly develop ileal and less commonly colonic strictures, containing various degrees of inflammation and fibrosis. While predominantly inflammatory strictures may benefit from a medical anti-inflammatory treatment, predominantly fibrotic strictures currently require endoscopic balloon dilation or surgery. Therefore, differentiation of the main components of a stricturing lesion is key for defining the therapeutic management. Read More

Ultrasound and intestinal lesions in Schistosoma mansoni infection: A case-control pilot study outside endemic areas.

PLoS One 2018 18;13(12):e0209333. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Centre for Tropical Diseases, IRCCS Sacro Cuore-Don Calabria Hospital, Negrar, Italy.

Background: Infection with Schistosoma mansoni is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in endemic areas, and is increasingly diagnosed in migrants and travellers outside transmission areas. Markers for the assessment of morbidity and impact of control programs in endemic areas and for the clinical management of patients in the clinical setting are scant, especially for intestinal involvement. Ultrasonography is well established to evaluate hepatosplenic pathology; on the contrary, ultrasound evaluation of intestinal schistosomiasis is virtually unexplored. Read More

J Visc Surg 2017 Sep 5;154(4):303-305. Epub 2017 Jul 5.

Department of General Surgery, Government Medical College and Hospital, Chandigarh, India.

Peritoneal encapsulation (PE) is a rare congenital anomaly that is formed due to an accessory peritoneal layer encapsulating the small bowel. Kinking of bowel within the accessory peritoneal layer or adhesions between the bowel loops and the peritoneal layer causes symptoms ranging from colicky abdominal pain to rarely intestinal obstruction. Cleland was the first person to have reported this condition as early as 1868 and since then only around 30 cases have been reported. Read More

TNFΔARE Mice Display Abnormal Lymphatics and Develop Tertiary Lymphoid Organs in the Mesentery.

Am J Pathol 2017 Apr 6;187(4):798-807. Epub 2017 Feb 6.

Inflammation Research Network and Smooth Muscle Research Group, Department of Physiology & Pharmacology, Snyder Institute for Chronic Diseases, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Electronic address:

Chronic inflammatory diseases are associated with a persistent and enhanced response to environmental antigens. As an adaptive response to this exaggerated immune state, affected tissue typically develops tertiary lymphoid organs. Studies of Crohn disease (CD), a chronic inflammatory disease of the intestinal tract, report tertiary lymphoid organs present within the mucosal wall, along with other lymphatic diseases, such as lymphangiogenesis and obstructed lymphatic vessels.
