Liver damage in a patient with Gaucher's disease type 1 and alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency: a potential epigenetic effect?

J Gastrointestin Liver Dis 2019 Mar;28(1):121-123

Department of Pneumology, Clinic Hospital, Federal University of Paraná, Paraná, Brazil.

Gaucher's disease and alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency are genetic diseases that can cause different kinds of liver damage, but are rarely associated with cirrhosis. Here, we describe the case of a patient with both diseases who presented with cirrhosis, followed by liver failure and death. Although the interaction between these two diseases remains unclear, we suspect the involvement of an epigenetic factor in the evolution of the aggressive liver disease. Read More

Ulcerative colitis associated with gastric heterotopia in the rectum: a case report.

J Gastrointestin Liver Dis 2019 Mar;28(1):117-120

Iuliu Hatieganu University of Medicine and Pharmacy;1st Medical Clinic, Gastroenterology Department, Emergency Clinical County Hospital, Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

Gastric heterotopia is defined as the presence of morphologically normal gastric tissue at a non-physiological site, coexisting with the original tissue. Although it is not uncommon to see it in the esophagus, duodenum or small intestine, it is exceptionally rare to discover gastric mucosa in the rectum. Here we report the case of a 46-year old male with a 10-year history of ulcerative colitis in whom the surveillance rectosigmoidoscopy detected a Mayo score of 1 for ulerative colitis activity and a middle rectal sessile polyp.

Direct peroral cholangioscopy in the management of difficult biliary stones: a new tool to confirm common bile duct clearance. Results of a preliminary study.

J Gastrointestin Liver Dis 2019 Mar;28(1):89-94

Humanitas University, Rozzano, Milan, Italy.

Background And Aims: Endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) with stone extraction is the standard treatment for choledocholithiasis. After stone retrieval, balloon-occluded cholangiography is generally performed to confirm bile duct clearance but can miss residual stones particularly in patients with residual small-sized stones, a large bile duct or pneumobilia. In addition, difficult common bile duct (CBD) stones requiring advanced endoscopic techniques for retrieval are a potential risk factor for choledocholithiasis recurrence. Read More

Small Bowel Mucosal Involvement and Mesenteric Mass Formation in a Young Female with Type 3 Gaucher Disease. A Case Report.

J Gastrointestin Liver Dis 2018 Dec;27(4):459-463

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC., USA.

Gaucher Disease arises due to a deficiency in the enzyme glucocerebrosidase and is the most common lysosomal storage disease. This enzyme deficiency leads to the accumulation of glucocerebroside within macrophages (Gaucher cells) and the resulting infiltration of these cells into organs can cause clinical symptoms. There are three types of Gaucher Disease that differ based on the clinical course and the presence or absence of neurological involvement, but classically, Gaucher cell infiltrates impact a patient's spleen, liver, bone marrow and cortex.

Optimizing Patient Management in Crohn's Disease in a Tertiary Referral Center: the Impact of Fast-Track MRI on Patient Management and Outcomes.

J Gastrointestin Liver Dis 2018 Dec;27(4):391-397

Semmelweis University, First Department of Medicine, Budapest, Hungary;Division of Gastroenterology, McGill University Health Centre, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Background And Aims: Rapid optimization of treatment algorithms and disease outcomes requires an objective measurement of disease activity in patients with Crohn's disease (CD). Our aim was to evaluate the impact of rapid-access to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on treatment optimization, clinical decision-making and outcomes for CD patients in a specialized tertiary care for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients.

Methods: A cohort of 75 referral CD patients (median age: 34, IQR: 25-43 years) who had underwent 90 fast-track MR enterography (MRE) scans between January 2014 and June 2016 were retrospectively enrolled. Read More
