Article: [A case of ileus caused by intestinal tuberculosis occurring during treatment of tuberculosis of ileocecum].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: A 73-year-old woman was diagnosed as having tuberculosis of ileocecum by colonoscopy and started on medication. A month later, she admitted for ileus. Colonoscopy showed improvement of tuberculosis of ileocecum. An ileus tube was inserted on the same day, and ileus was improved once. But after removing the tube, she had ileus again. Computed tomography just after re-inserting an ileus tube with Amidotrizoic acid showed 3 stenoses of ileum. A partial resection of the small intestine was performed. Mycobacterium tuberculosis with PCR was positive. A postoperative course was uneventful and no recurrence has occurred up to now. During treatment of tuberculosis, ileus caused by intestinal tuberculosis may occur. It must be considered to examine the small intestine before beginning to treat tuberculosis of ileocecum or colon.Nippon Shokakibyo Gakkai zasshi The Japanese journal of gastro-enterology 03/2009; 106(2):208-15.
Article: [A case of unresectable cholangiocellular carcinoma treated with surgery followed by combination chemotherapy].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The patient was a 44-year-old man, who was investigated for lateral abdominal pain and liver dysfunction, and subsequently referred to our department with a diagnosis of unresectable intrahepatic cholangiocellular carcinoma (CCC). Radiological examinations revealed the huge mass in the right lobe of the liver with intrahepatic metastasis in the left lobe. The main tumor was surgically removed, but the metastases were not removed. A month after the operation, a subcutaneous implant reservoir was indwelled for repeated transcatheter hepatic arterial chemo infusion therapy (5-fluorouracil 500 mg/day continuous infusion, day 1-5, and CDDP 10 mg/day, day 1) from the right femoral artery. After 15 courses of home anti-cancer chemotherapy, abdominal CT revealed that the size of intrahepatic metastasis in the left lobe of the liver had not shown growth, whereas other metastitic sites popped up in the caudate lobe, which were free of chemical agent flow. There was no major complication related to the chemotherapy throughout the post-treatment course. Although he maintained a good level of QOL, he refused further chemotherapy due to depression. He died of liver failure 7 months after the operation. In conclusion, volume reduction surgery followed by transcatheter hepatic arterial chemo infusion might be promising as an effective therapy for non resectable CCC.Gan to kagaku ryoho.
