Case Report



Complicated granulomatous colitis in a patient with Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome, successfully treated with infliximab


Price: €10,00

Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome (HPS) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder which is characterised by the triad of oculocutaneous albinism, platelet dysfunction and accumulation of ceroidlike pigment in tissues. Complications of the syndrome, such as fatal pulmonary fibrosis, renal failure and cardiomyopathy have been described. Granulomatous colitis has been documented in several families with the HPS. The bowel disease of the HPS is a unique type of inflammatory bowel disease with clinical features suggestive of idiopathic ulcerative colitis (UC) and pathologic features suggestive of Crohns disease. We report a patient with HPS which was complicated by granulomatous colitis with perineal and rectovaginal fistulas refractory to antibiotics and azathioprine but dramatically responded to repeated infusions of infliximab.

Intra-abdominal lymphatic malformation


Price: €10,00

Intra-abdominal lymphangioma is a rare congenital lymphatic vascular malformation. It is found, most commonly, in adult patients who present with abdominal pain, and whom medical imaging (ultrasound, endoscopy and tomography) reveals a cystic intra-abdominal mass. Such masses may be on the mesentery, in contact with abdominal viscera or may be part of the visceral wall. Diagnosis of intra-abdominal lymphangioma is difficult because of its rarity, and because other pathologies may have the same radiological signs. The diagnosis is confirmed by anatomopathological examination with immunohistochemistry. The treatment is complete surgical excision, in order to prevent recurrence. [Product Details...]
