    Newcomers in paediatric GI pathology: childhood enteropathies including very early onset monogenic IBD.
    Virchows Arch 2017 Jul 17. Epub 2017 Jul 17.
    Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Perelman School of Medicine at The University of Pennsylvania, 3401 Civic Center Boulevard, 5 NW26, Philadelphia, PA, 19104, USA.
    Childhood enteropathies are a group of diseases causing severe chronic (>2-3 weeks) diarrhoea often starting in the first week of life with the potential for fatal complications for the affected infant. Early identification and accurate classification of childhood enteropathies are, therefore, crucial for making treatment decisions to prevent life-threatening complications. Childhood enteropathies are classified into four groups based on the underlying pathology: (i) conditions related to defective digestion, absorption and transport of nutrients and electrolytes; (ii) disorders related to enterocyte differentiation and polarization; (iii) defects of enteroendocrine cell differentiation; and (iv) disorders associated with defective modulation of intestinal immune response.

    Waldmann's Disease (Primary Intestinal Lymphangiectasia) with Atrial Septal Defect.
    J Clin Diagn Res 2017 Apr 1;11(4):SD03-SD04. Epub 2017 Apr 1.
    Assistant Professor, Department of Paediatrics, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, Karnataka, India.
    Waldmann's disease or Primary Intestinal Lymphangiectasia (PIL) is a rare disorder of gastrointestinal tract characterized by dilated lymphatics and widened villi causing leakage of lymph into intestinal lumen. Loss of lymph leads to hypoalbuminemia, hyogammaglobulinemia and lymphopenia. Secondary lymphangiectasia occurs secondary to an elevated lymphatic pressure as in lymphoma, systemic lupus erythematosus, constrictive pericarditis, cardiac surgeries (Fontan's procedure), inflammatory bowel disease and malignancies.

    Waldmann's disease: a rare cause of protein losing enteropathy in an adult patient.
    Rev Esp Enferm Dig 2017 May;109(5):385-388
    Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Dijon.
    Primary intestinal lymphangiectasia or Waldmann's disease is an uncommon cause of protein losing enteropathy with an unknown etiology and is usually diagnosed during childhood. It is characterized by dilation and leakage of intestinal lymph vessels leading to hypoalbuminemia, hypogammaglobulinemia and lymphopenia. Differential diagnosis should include erosive and non-erosive gastrointestinal disorders, conditions involving mesenteric lymphatic obstruction and cardiovascular disorders that increase central venous pressure.

    Lymphatic deletion of calcitonin receptor-like receptor exacerbates intestinal inflammation.
    JCI Insight 2017 Mar 23;2(6):e92465. Epub 2017 Mar 23.
    Department of Cell Biology and Physiology, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA.
    Lymphatics play a critical role in maintaining gastrointestinal homeostasis and in the absorption of dietary lipids, yet their roles in intestinal inflammation remain elusive. Given the increasing prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease, we investigated whether lymphatic vessels contribute to, or may be causative of, disease progression. We generated a mouse model with temporal and spatial deletion of the key lymphangiogenic receptor for the adrenomedullin peptide, calcitonin receptor-like receptor (Calcrl), and found that the loss of lymphatic Calcrl was sufficient to induce intestinal lymphangiectasia, characterized by dilated lacteals and protein-losing enteropathy.

    Congenital pulmonary lymphangiectasia and early mortality after stage 1 reconstruction procedures.
    Cardiol Young 2017 Mar 13:1-5. Epub 2017 Mar 13.
    4Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine,The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia,Philadelphia,Pennsylvania,United States of America.
    Objectives: Pulmonary lymphangiectasia associated with hypoplastic left heart syndrome with an intact or restrictive atrial septum may result from increased left atrial pressure, and is associated with worse outcomes following staged reconstruction due to lung dysfunction and significant hypoxaemia. Our objective was to characterise the incidence of pulmonary lymphangiectasia in cases of early mortality following stage 1 reconstructions.

    Methods: An institutional cardiac surgical database was retrospectively searched for patients who died within 30 days following a stage 1 reconstruction between 1 January, 1984 and 31 December, 2013. Read More

    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.

    CHOP/HUP Center for Lymphatic Imaging and Interventions, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Penn Medicine: Hospital of University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA. Electronic address:
    Pulmonary lymphatic diseases have been recognized for many years and have been referred as pulmonary lymphangiectasia, pulmonary lymphangiomatosis, plastic bronchitis, and idiopathic chylothorax or chylopericardium. The lymphatic etiology of these conditions has been determined by detection of cystic lymphatic structures on biopsy or postmortem examination. Development of new imaging techniques such as dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance lymphangiography has allowed better understanding of pathophysiology of these conditions. Read More

    From the *Department of Nuclear Medicine, and †Paediatric Department, University Hospital Split, Split, Croatia.
    Lymphoscintigraphy is not considered as a first line diagnostic procedure in abdominal or thoracic lymphorrhea of various origin. We report a patient with lymphangiectasia in whom posttraumatic lymphorrhea was diagnosed by lymphoscintigraphy only after third attempt when we applied pushups exercise with the aim to raise venous pressure and thus provoke lymph backflow in ductus thoracicus and enteric lymphytics. Lymphorrhea was clearly visible in colon ascendens and colon transversum on 9h planar scintigram. Read More
