A catastrophic event caused by pasteurella multocida in an alcoholic cirrhotic patient


Price: €10,00

Pasteurella multocida is a gram negative coccobacillus that is a zoonotic agent of human disease. It is present in the nasopharynx of cats and dogs. It may cause serious soft tissue infections, less commonly it may cause sepsis or septic shock presenting with disseminated intravascular coagulation and acute renal failure. Invasive forms of pasteurella infection more frequently occur in immuncompromised patients (1,3). We report a case of rapidly proceeding lethal septicemia due to infection with P. multocida in a woman with alcoholic liver cirrhosis. [Product Details...]



Cholestatic hepatitis in a patient with typhoid fever – a case report


Price: €10,00

Typhoid fever is known to cause a wide range of hepatic complications (1). However, cholestasis secondary to typhoid fever has been reported only in a very few instances (2,3). We recently came across a young patient who presented with fever and jaundice and found to have cholestatic hepatitis secondary to typhoid fever. [Product Details...]



Metastatic gastric tumor mimicking gastrointestinal stromal tumor


Price: €10,00

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal neoplasms of the gastrointestinal tract and most of them are centered in the submucosa or the muscularis propria. The endoscopic appearance of GISTs is that of a submucosal lesion, with or without ulceration (1). On the other hand gastric metastatic tumors are very rare. However, endoscopic appearance can be seen as a submucosal tumor with a central depression in half of them (2,3). Because of these similar appearances, differential diagnosis may be difficult by imaging methods (endoscopy or endoscopic ultrasound [EUS]). Here, we presented a case with a submucosal lesion that resembles GISTs on EUS, but was diagnosed metastatic ovarian carcinoma by fine needle aspiration (FNA). [Product Details...]



Subcapsular hepatic hematoma after ERCP


Price: €10,00

The most frequent complications of Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) are cardio - pulmonary depression, pancreatitis, cholangitis, hemorrhage, and duodenal perforation (1). Subcapsular hepatic hematoma is a rare complication of ERCP. Herein we report a case of subcapsular hepatic hematoma associated with ERCP. [Product Details...]



Sulbactam/ampicillin associated hepatocellular type liver injury


Price: €10,00

Drug induced liver disease accounts for up to 10% of all adverse drug reactions. Drugs account for 2-5% of cases of patients hospitalized with jaundice and up to 30% of patients who present with acute hepatitis (1-3). The clinical presentation varies widely and can mimic acute and chronic liver diseases. Severity of toxichepatitis varies from non-specific changes to fulminant hepatic failure and cirrhosis. Early detection is important because it can decrease the severity of hepatotoxicity if the drug is discontinued. [Product Details...]
