There is a wide spectrum of hereditary and acquired immunodeficiency disorders that are characterized by specific abnormalities involving a plethora of humoral, cellular, and phagocytic immunologic pathways. These include distinctive primary immunodeficiency syndromes due to characteristic genetic defects and secondary immunodeficiency syndromes, such as AIDS from HIV infection and therapy-related immunosuppression in patients with cancers or a solid organ or stem cell transplant. The gut mucosa and gut-associated lymphoid tissue (the largest lymphoid organ in the body), along with diverse commensal microbiota, play complex and critical roles in development and modulation of the immune system.

Persistent omphalomesenteric duct and urachus presenting as an umbilical hernia.

BMJ Case Rep 2022 Apr 1;15(4). Epub 2022 Apr 1.

Department of General Surgery, King Edward Memorial and Seth Gordhandas Sunderdas Medical College, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Vitellointestinal duct anomalies, although one of the most frequent malformations to be found (2%-3% in population), they are most unlikely to cause symptoms. A persistent Vitellointestinal duct can induce abdominal pain, bowel obstruction, intestinal haemorrhage and umbilical sinus, fistula or hernia which commonly occurs in children. Patent vitellointestinal duct or persistent omphalomesenteric duct is a very unusual congenital anomaly which occurs in 2% of the population related to the embryonic yolk stalk. Read More

Small bowel diverticulosis: imaging appearances, complications, and pitfalls.

Clin Radiol 2022 04 7;77(4):264-273. Epub 2022 Jan 7.

Department of Clinical Radiology, East Lancashire Hospitals Trust, Haslingden Rd, Blackburn, BB2 3HH, UK. Electronic address:

Diverticula of the small bowel can be categorised as true, with Meckel's being the only example, or false. False small bowel diverticula (SBD) are acquired through herniation of the internal layers of the bowel wall through the muscularis propria. Peri-ampullary duodenal diverticula are a well-recognised example; however, the importance of more distal SBD in the jejunum and ileum is underappreciated, and they are under-reported on cross-sectional imaging.

Diagnostic accuracy of CT enterography correlated to histopathology in the diagnosis of small bowel Crohn's disease.

Ir J Med Sci 2022 Jan 8. Epub 2022 Jan 8.

Medical Imaging Department, Al-Azhar University, Gaza, Palestine.

Background: Crohn's disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory process affecting the gastrointestinal tract, mainly the terminal ileum of small bowel.

They can be seen throughout the alimentary tract with the most common involving the distal ileum and second most common the esophagus. Many duplication cysts are asymptomatic and thus discovered as an incidental imaging finding, though they can also be symptomatic with an array of clinical presentations dependent largely on their location.

Am Surg 2022 Mar 25;88(3):544-546. Epub 2021 Jun 25.

Division of Pediatric Surgery, 21693University of Mississippi Medical Center, Jackson, MS, USA.

Gastroschisis is a rare congenital abdominal wall defect characterized by intestinal evisceration to the right of the umbilical stalk. In less than 6% of cases, the fascial defect closes around the herniated viscera in utero. The mechanism of fascial closure in these cases is unknown; however, the tourniquet effect on the mesenteric vasculature is thought to lead to intestinal atresia and midgut infarction. Read More
