European Guideline on IgG4-related digestive disease - UEG and SGF evidence-based recommendations.

United European Gastroenterol J 2020 Jun 18:2050640620934911. Epub 2020 Jun 18.

See list at the end of this article.

The overall objective of these guidelines is to provide evidence-based recommendations for the diagnosis and management of immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related digestive disease in adults and children. IgG4-related digestive disease can be diagnosed only with a comprehensive work-up that includes histology, organ morphology at imaging, serology, search for other organ involvement, and response to glucocorticoid treatment. Indications for treatment are symptomatic patients with obstructive jaundice, abdominal pain, posterior pancreatic pain, and involvement of extra-pancreatic digestive organs, including IgG4-related cholangitis.

A Rare Cause of Persistent Blood Loss after Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis Catheter Placement.

Case Rep Surg 2020 20;2020:1309418. Epub 2020 Feb 20.

Department of Surgery, Treant Health Care Group, Scheper Hospital, Boermarkeweg 60, 7824 AA Emmen, Netherlands.

The laparoscopic placement of a continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) catheter is a widely used method in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD). The potential complications of this procedure include perforation of intra-abdominal organs, surgical site infection, peritonitis, catheter migration, catheter blockage, port site herniation, and bleeding. In most cases, bleeding is considered to be an early-onset complication because it mostly occurs within the first seven days after surgery. Read More

Traumatic pancreatitis.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2020 05;45(5):1265-1276

Department of Radiology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, 619 19th Street South, JTN 456, Birmingham, AL, 35294, USA.

Post-traumatic pancreatitis can develop secondary to blunt or penetrating abdominal trauma, post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, or following pancreatic surgery. Clinical findings are often nonspecific, and imaging findings can be subtle on presentation. Early diagnosis of pancreatic duct injury is critical and informs management strategy; imaging plays important role in diagnosis of ductal injury and identification of delayed complications such as retroperitoneal fluid collections, pancreatic fistula, ductal strictures, and recurrent pancreatitis.

Iliopsoas Mass, Hydroureter, and Back Squats: Using Biomechanics and Diagnostic Persistence to Diagnose a Germ Cell Tumor.

Ochsner J 2019 ;19(2):152-156

Department of Medicine, University of South Alabama, Mobile, AL.

Lesions in the iliopsoas compartment carry a broad differential diagnosis, including infection, tumor, or hematoma, and less commonly, retroperitoneal fibrosis, atrophy secondary to paralysis or muscle disease, foreign body, calcifications secondary to trauma, or rhabdomyolysis. Iliopsoas lesions are oftentimes accompanied by nonspecific symptoms, resulting in a delayed diagnosis. We present the case of a 43-year-old male with acute radiating groin pain who was found to have a traumatic iliopsoas hemorrhagic lesion causing ureteral compression and ureteral dilatation, all presumably originating from a new-onset weight-training program.

Erdheim-Chester disease (ECD) is a rare form of non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis, with multisystem manifestation such as bone pain, being the most common presenting symptom, cardiovascular or central nervous system involvement, interstitial lung disease, skin and orbital lesions, adrenal enlargement, retroperitoneal fibrosis and renal impairment as well fever, and weight loss. The disease is challenging to diagnose due to its rarity and mimicry of other infiltrative processes. Technetium-99 m bone scintigraphy showing pathological bone activity in the long bones is highly suggestive of ECD. Read More

University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Department of Radiology, 3889 JPP, 200 Hawkins Drive, Iowa City, IA 52242, US.

Retroperitoneal fibrosis (RPF) is a very rare disease that is even more rare in the pediatric population. Even less common are idiopathic pediatric cases of retroperitoneal fibrosis, with a majority of reported pediatric retroperitoneal fibrosis cases being associated with secondary etiologies. We present an 11-year-old Caucasian female that was diagnosed with idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to work-up severe bilateral hydronephrosis that was identified with retroperitoneal ultrasound.
