Haemorrhagic shock secondary to a diffuse ulcerative enteritis after Ipilimumab and Nivolumab treatment for metastatic melanoma: a case report.

Ann Palliat Med 2021 Jun 2. Epub 2021 Jun 2.

Université de Paris, Department of Gastroenterology, AP-HP Hôpital Saint Louis, Paris, France.

We provide a unique case of haemorrhagic shock complicating a corticosteroid-resistant diffuse ulcerative enteritis in a patient treated with a combination of an anti CTLA-4 and an anti PD-1 for metastatic melanoma. Immunotherapy has changed the perspective for the management of patients with metastatic melanoma but are also responsible for digestive complications mainly represented by immunomediated colitis. Digestive bleeding is common in patients with extensive colonic lesions but has never been described in enteritis independent of colitis. Read More

An Unusual Case of Meckel Diverticulitis Misdiagnosed as an Infected Urachal Cyst.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2021 May 13;57(5). Epub 2021 May 13.

Clinical Medical Department, Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy, "Dunărea de Jos" University, 800216 Galați, Romania.

Meckel's diverticulum (MD), a remnant of the omphaloenteric duct, is among the most frequent intestinal malformations. Another embryonic vestige is the urachus, which obliterates, becoming the median umbilical ligament; the failure of this process can lead to a urachal cyst formation. We present a case of Meckel diverticulitis misdiagnosed as an infected urachal cyst. Read More
