Gyermekgyógyászati Klinika, Debreceni Egyetem, Általános Orvostudományi Kar Debrecen, Nagyerdei krt. 98., 4032.

Although very early onset inflammatory bowel disease that develops in early childhood (before the age of 6 years) has a different etiology from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, it is also characterized by chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. Basically, very early onset inflammatory bowel disease should be considered as an immunodeficiency with monogenic origin where both gastrointestinal manifestations and symptoms of immunodeficiencies may develop in variable combinations. However, in the future, the evaluation of genetic alterations in the background of the disease will probably be performed by next-generation sequencing technology; one should also consider that the sequence of the DNA stands in continuous interaction with a wide variety of environmental effects, among which nutrition should be emphasized by all means.

The respiratory infections are the most common presentations and leading cause of morbidity and mortality in primary immunodeficiencies. The pathogen or spectrum of pathogens may be characteristic for the underlying primary immunodeficiency, and that knowledge plays an important role in the empirical treatment or prevention of the infections, or, conversely, the identification of an unusual pathogen may raise the suspicion on an immunodeficiency. Apart from the acute respiratory infections, chronic lung diseases are also common complications. Read More

Zakład Radioterapii, Wojewódzki Szpital Specjalistyczny im. Najświętszej Maryi Panny w Częstochowie, Polska.

Among patients and health professionals who are exposed to ionizing radiation during diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, refractive errors are common and soft contact lenses are widely used to correct them. Changes in the inner structure of contact lens may influence the safety of its usage through modification of its water content or oxygen accessibility to cornea. Therefore, analysis of impact of external factors, therein ionizing radiation used in medicine, on contact lenses parameters is necessary, particularly to compare the presence of free volume gaps in the structure of the polymer soft contact lenses.

Material And Methods: We injected ICG into the inferior mesenteric artery (AMI) of four swines to see whether the watershed area of the arterial supply zone can be sufficiently visualized by fluorescence imaging in order to mark the right dissection area along the fascia parietalis before and during resection.

Results: We observed a fluorescence signal in all the supplied areas of AMI but not in other parts of the abdominal cavity or other organs. Read More

[Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease - a summary and update based on the EASL-EASD-EASO Clinical Practice Guidelines of 2016].

Orv Hetil 2018 11;159(45):1815-1830

The non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) as a common metabolic disease affects nearly one third of the population in the developed countries. The significance of the NAFLD is due to its spectrum disease (simple steatosis → NASH [non-alcoholic steatohepatitis] ± fibrosis → cirrhosis → HCC [hepatocellular carcinome]) character; its association with obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), dyslipidaemia, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance; and its complications both as a consequence of the direct progression of the liver disease and also related to the additional target organ damage due to the progression of the metabolic disease (cardiovascular, renal). The clinical practice guideline jointly authored by 3 European professional societies (EASL-EASD-EASO) in 2016 offers a gap-filling, more united diagnostic, therapeutical and follow-up algorithm for the management of NAFLD.

Introduction: Several methods (bone graft, endoprosthesis) are used to reconstruct proximal humerus resections due to primary and metastatic tumours. One of the new procedures is the replacement of the joint surfaces and the removed proximal humerus end with reverse shoulder prosthesis, optionally supplemented with bone implantation (composite procedure) in the hope of achieving better shoulder function.

Aim: The aim of this study was to compare the shoulder function of the patient group operated by the above procedure with reverse prosthesis to a patient group operated by indication of degenerative shoulder disease (rotator cuff arthropathy). Read More
