Hicham El Bouhaddouti, Tarik Souiki, Khalid Mazine, Abdelmalek Ousadden, Khalid Mazaz, Khalid Ait Taleb
Open Journal of Gastroenterology (OJGas) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojgas.2015.52002
Abstract: Necrosis of the stomach is rare. It occurs when there is vascular anomalies, gastric volvulus or her-niation and in infectious gastritis. We report a case in which infectious gastritis leads to a necrotiz-ing gastritis that is treated with urgent gastrectomy.

Annular pancreas is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by the presence of ectopic pancreatic tissue surrounding the duodenum. This malformation is usually asymptomatic in adults, but can manifests as pancreatitis, duodenal stenosis, or duodenal or gastric ulceration. We report the case of a young patient of 18 years old hospitalized for epigastric pain and vomiting, in whom radiological investigations showed an annular pancreas. At operation, a complete obstruction of the duodenum between its first and second parts was found, caused by an annular pancreas. No other congenital anomaly of the intra abdominal organs was noted. A gastroenterostomy was performed. Both the rarity of this congenital abnormality and its successful correction by surgical means have prompted us to make the following presentation.

Abstract: Background: Metal stents for unresectable pancreatic cancer are associated with longer patency and superior cost-effectiveness. However, they are too expensive to be recommended routinely in developing countries. Moreover, a debate on outcome results in these patients who receive plastic biliary endoprothesis versus surgical bypass as palliation of obstructive jaundice. We aimed to compare retrospectively the outcomes in patients treated with plastic stent or surgical bypass as a palliative option for these patients. Patients and Methods: We have examined data for patients (n = 86) who received endoscopic stenting (n = 64) or surgical bypass (n = 22), from January 2013 to November 2016, as a palliative treatment for obstructive jaundice from inoperable cancer head pancreas. Results: Serum bilirubin and CA19.9 levels were comparable in age and gender matched patient groups. Moreover, post-operative major complications and 30-days mortality showed no significant differences among patient groups. However, surgical bypass treated patients showed longer initial hospital stay (9 vs. 6 days, p = 0.014), higher cost ($1600 vs. $1088) and longer survival (192 vs. 101 days, p = 0.003) compared to endoscopy-stenting treated patients. Re-hospitalization was required for 5 stented patients (averaged $448). Conclusion: Biliary bypass surgery for unresectable pancreatic cancer may improve patient survival, although prolongs hospital stay. It may be recommended for relatively fit patients with a life expectancy of 6 months and more.

Intussusception is an invagination of a segment of the gastrointestinal tract into an adjacent one. Jejunojejunal intussusception is a rare complication of jejunostomy tube placement with an incidence of 1%. We are reporting a case of 35-year-old man who was suffering from severe oral, lesions due to Ingestion of acide agents. He received Witzel jejunostomy for early feeding. Ileus developed postoperatively and plain X-ray of the abdomen showed distended small bowel loop. Abdominal computed tomography revealed target sign as well as the feeding tube in a dilated jejunum and intussusception was diagnosed. Exploratory laparotomy was required due to failure of expectant therapy. Reduction of intussusception was done during exploratory laparotomy. The jejunostomy feeding was continued and the postoperative course was uneventful.

Liposarcoma of the Spermatic Cord  [PDF]
Pierlesky Elion Ossibi, Hicham Anoune, Khalid El Haoudi, Karim Ibn Majdoub, Imane Toughrai, Said Ait Laalim, Khalid Mazaz
Case Reports in Clinical Medicine (CRCM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/crcm.2014.39113
Abstract: Few cases of Liposarcoma of the spermatic cord have been reported in the literature. This rare tumor represents 7% of malignant tumors of the spermatic cord. We report a case of an unusual liposarcoma of the spermatic cord, with respect to its sclerosing variant, occurring in a healthy looking 42 years old man. A wide local excision of the tumor was performed. Adjuvant radiotherapy may sometimes be effective on local recurrence. Even though this tumor evolves slowly, a prolonged follow up is required because of the risk of late recurrence.
Rupture of Liver Hydatid Cyst into Gall Bladder  [PDF]
El Mahdi Benkoukous, Pierlesky Elion Ossibi, Hicham El Bouhadoutti, Said Ait Laalim, Abdelmalek Oussaden, Khalid Mazaz, Khalid Ait Taleb
Surgical Science (SS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2015.67045
Abstract: Hepatic hydatid cyst is a rare parasitic affection which constitutes a major health problem in countries endemic to hydatidosis. Rupture of hydatid cyst into gallbladder is an exceptional complication first described in 1952 by Atlas and Kamenear. We report the case of a hepatic hydatid cyst rupture into gallbladder in a 31-year-old patient with no history of disease.

Abstract: We report a case of a 70-year-old Caucasian woman who presented to our hospital with a subcutaneous mass in the para-umbilical area with a non-specific clinical presentation. The diagnosis of subcutaneous hydatid cyst was suspected on the basis of radiological findings. A complete surgical resection of the mass was performed and the patient had an uneventful post-operative recovery. The histopathology confirmed the suspected diagnosis.Hydatid cyst should be considered in the differential diagnosis of every subcutaneous cystic mass, especially in regions where the disease is endemic. The best treatment is the total excision of the cyst with an intact wall.Hydatid disease is a parasitic infestation that is caused by Echinococcus granulosis, the life cycle of which has been well described [1]. Endemic areas are countries of the temperate zones, where the common intermediate hosts, sheep, goats, and cattle, are raised, such as in North Africa, the Middle East, Central Europe, Australia, and South America [1,2]. The liver is the most frequently involved organ (75%), followed by the lung (15%) [2,3]. The solitary primary subcutaneous localization is extremely rare, and its incidence is unknown [2]. In our patient, the hydatid cyst was located in the abdomen anterior wall without any other involvement, which makes this an interesting case.A 70-year-old Moroccan Caucasian woman presented to our hospital with a subcutaneous cystic mass in the right para-umbilical abdominal wall which had been evolving for six months. Her physical examination revealed an abdominal parietal mass 6 cm in diameter that was palpated 5 cm to the right of the umbilicus. It was cystic, fluctuant, mobile, and painless. The overlying skin was normal. An abdominal ultrasound showed a rounded cystic mass that was limited within the right para-umbilical abdominal wall and measured 60 mm. No other abdominal cystic mass was found. The pre-operative examinations (chest radiograph, complete blood count, urin

Abstract: A 70-year-old Arabic African man with undiagnosed Crohn's disease presented with acute abdominal obstruction due to an occlusive carcinoma of the sigmoid. At laparotomy, the colonic tumor was excised with continuity restored by end-to-end anastomosis.The risk of colonic carcinoma in Crohn's disease is increasing. Several case reports actually support the possibility that a genuine association between these two conditions exists.Colorectal cancer occurring in ulcerative colitis was described in 1925 by Crohn [1] but not until 23 years later did Warren and Sommers report the first case of adenocarcinoma complicating regional enteritis [2]. For the next 30 years, an increasing frequency of reports of single [3,4] and even multiple cases [4,5] failed to dispel the scepticism surrounding this association.A 70-year-old Arabic African man presented to the emergency department of the University Hospital Hassan II of Fez with a five-day intestinal obstruction with associated abdominal distension and vomiting. He denied intestinal bleeding or diarrhea. He gave a history of referred intermittent episodes of constipation for a period of 6 months.When examined he was found to have general abdominal tenderness. His white blood cell count was 8000 elt/ml, his haemoglobin was 11 gr/dl, and his platelet count was 350 k/ml. His abdominal X-rays showed air-fluid levels. Abdominal scanner examination revealed a distension of his small and large bowels upstream a sigmoid colon process (Figure 1). A sigmoidoscopy showed a stricture of his sigmoid colon. Our patient was taken immediately to laparotomy, which confirmed the presence of an occlusive sigmoid tumor. A defunctioning sigmoidostomy was later performed on our patient. A colonoscopy through the stomy revealed colitis and ileitis. A resection of his sigmoid colon was performed with continuity restored by end-to-end anastomosis (Figure 2).Meanwhile, pathological examination of our patient showed a well-differentiated adenocarcinoma o

Case Reports in Clinical Medicine (CRCM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/crcm.2014.39114
Abstract: A 60-year-old woman presented to the emergency department of our university hospital for several episodes of upper gastro-intestinal bleeding (hematemesis and melena). The endoscopic examination (Figure 1) showed a large ulcer at the front of the bulb, with a calculation within it and a visible vessel on the banks of the ulcer treated by putting two clips. Computer tomography (CT), demonstrated a sclerotic, atrophic and multi gallstone gallbladder, with a calculation protruding in the duodenum. The patient underwent surgery which consisted on partial cholecystectomy with duodenal suture and closing of cystic duct.
