Colocolic Intussusception Associated with Octangium sp. (Digenea: Microscaphidiidae) in a Green Sea Turtle Chelonia mydas.

J Aquat Anim Health 2021 Mar 13;33(1):17-23. Epub 2021 Mar 13.

Applied Animal Morphophysiology Laboratory, Postgraduate Program in Animal Science, Federal Rural University do Semi-Árido, Mossoró, Rio Grande do Norte, 59625-900, Brazil.

Reports of intussusception in sea turtles are generally linked to marine debris ingestion; therefore, only a few cases of the disease are associated with parasitic infestations. The objective of this study was to describe the necropsy findings of the first reported case of colocolic intussusception in a green sea turtle Chelonia mydas, associated with the helminth Octangium sp. A juvenile female green sea turtle, which was registered and rescued by the team from the Cetaceans Project of Costa Branca, State University of Rio Grande do Norte, was examined. Read More

Peutz-Jeghers syndrome.

Curr Opin Gastroenterol 2021 May;37(3):245-254

2nd Department of Internal Medicine - Gastroenterology, Charles University, Faculty of Medicine in Hradec Kralove and University Hospital, Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic.

Purpose Of Review: Peutz-Jeghers syndrome is a rare, autosomal dominant, hereditary polyposis syndrome defined by gastrointestinal hamartomas and mucocutaneous pigmentations, caused by a germline mutation in the serine/ threonine kinase 11 or liver kinase B1 (STK11/LKB1) genes. Hamartomatous polyps located throughout the gastrointestinal tract can be complicated by bleeding and small bowel intussusception, potentially leading to the need for emergency surgery. Individuals suffering from Peutz-Jeghers syndrome have an increased lifetime risk of various forms of cancer (gastrointestinal, pancreatic, lung, breast, uterine, ovarian and testicular). Read More
