lose clinical and MRI follow-up is essential. We recommend repeating diagnostic investigations and consideration of a surgical biopsy for patients who fail to respond clinically or radiographically to treatment, or who relapse on treatment. We recommend treatment with glucocorticoids for those who meet clinical and diagnostic criteria for Tolosa-Hunt syndrome We use prednisone 80 to 100 mg daily for three days. The prognosis for most patients is favorable. However, some patients follow a relapsing-remitting course requiring prolonged corticosteroid or other immunosuppressive therapy, and a few have permanent cranial nerve
This patient is 1 year post second bilateral lung transplant and completely immunocompromised from CF and the transplant. One week prior to developing symptoms of high fever, headache, and vague abdominal pain the patient had their stent removed that was placed for treatment of choledocholithiasis, gallstones. This case is presented as rare case due to the imaging of patient virtually identical to a inflamed swollen pancreas (acute interstitial edematous pancreatitis). With further testing and increase of symptoms candida albican infections, a type of yeast infection, was concluded. It was successfully treated by antifungal therapy.
In a period from 1st June 2014 to 30 January 2015.The number of cases were one hundred and sixty (160) patients underwent urgent exploratory laparotomy and analysis of their records. Data were collected by us and our residents in emergency departments of Aswan University Hospital. The consent was taken from patients or their guardians and relatives. Those patients were divided into two groups ( A & B ). Group A (80 patients) were suffering from peritonitis due to e.g perforated peptic ulcer, perforated appendix….etc, so they were considered as potentially septic wounds, also group A was divided into two subgroups (A1& A2).
INTRODUCTION The inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), affect a large number of Europeans [1, 2]. Despite the introduction of new treatments, CD and UC remain chronic conditions with severe disease morbidity, often complicated by surgery and frequent admissions to hospital [1, 3]. Although studies of the genome have found 200 loci associated with IBD, the variation in the IBD phenotype explained by these finding is still below 25-30% [4, 5] suggesting a role of environmental factors in IBD pathogenesis. Several studies indicate environmental impact on IBD pathogenesis including; exposure to pathogens , disease associated dysbiosis , metabolic disequilibrium , or epigenetic modifications . More comprehensive studies, addressing these and other potential causes of IBD, could provide invaluable new insight into

Purpose The purpose of the study was to test whether a multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of congestive heart failure could reduce the rates of readmission in elderly patients. The study focused on elderly patients because these patients have an increased risk of readmission. This increased risk of readmission is associated with factors such as social isolation and non compliance with dietary and medical prescriptions. Method The study screened patients who were admitted to the Jewish Hospital which is located in the Washington University Medical Center. All the patients who were screened for the study were 70 years or older.
Title of the proposal: Chronic diarrhea in the outpatient department: evaluation of demographic and clinical characteristics. Background: Chronic diarrhoea in adult is a common gastrointestinal disorder that is characterized by various degrees of abdominal pain and diarrhoea. Most patients have long-standing symptoms . It is defined as the abnormal passage of three or more loose or liquid stools per day for more than four weeks . This definition based on symptoms led to an overlap between functional bowel disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome  and organic causes.
PATIENT PRESENTED WITH EPIGASTRIC PAIN OVER A 3-MONTH PERIOD AND SUBSEQUENTLY HAD ONE EPISODE OF GASTROINTESTINAL BLEEDING THAT REQUIRED ADMISSION. DURING THAT ADMISSION A COMPLETE WORKUP WAS PERFORMED INCLUDING AN EGD THAT REVEALED THE PRESENCE OF AN ULCERATED AND FRIABLE MASS IN THE GASTRIC FUNDUS AS WELL AS MILD GASTRITIS IN THE ANTRUM. PATHOLOGIST: BIOPSIES DEMONSTRATED INVASIVE ADENOCARCINOMA. SURGEON: DO WE
Rituximab is most commonly used for Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, rheumatoid arthritis, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) and Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA). Non-Hodgkin lymphoma a type of cancer which initiates in a subset of the white blood cell, called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes play an important role in the immune system. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, meaning the body sees itself as a potential threat. The disease is commonly linked with chronical inflammation of the joints, but in some cases the damages may metastasize to the lungs, heart, blood vessels, ... CLL is another type of cancer which starts in the bone marrow and proceeds to the blood.
