A Rare Cause of Stomach Gangrene: Necrotizing Gastritis  [PDF]
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.

Hemobilia Due to an Iatrogenic Arteriobiliary Fistula Complicating Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: A Case Report  [PDF]
Hicham El Bouhaddouti, Khalid Mazine, Abdesslam Bouassria, Ouadii Mouaqit, Elbachir Benjelloun, Abdelmalek Ousadden, Khalid Ait Taleb
Open Journal of Gastroenterology (OJGas) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojgas.2014.46040
Abstract: Hemobilia is the result of a pathological communication between bile duct and intra or extrahepatic vessel. 40% to 60% of the haemobilia cases are Iatrogenic, and the other causes are either vascular malformations or hepatic blunt trauma. We describe the case history of a patient in which laparoscopic cholecystectomy was complicated 3 months later by massive hemobilia. The cause of haemorrhage was a fistula between the principal bil duct and the right hepatic artery. This complication was successfully managed by surgery and angiographic embolization with full recovery of the patient.
Surgical Bypass versus Endoscopic Stenting for Unresectable Head Pancreatic Cancer, Which Palliative Treatment Is Better in Developing Countries, Morocco as an Example  [PDF]

Open Journal of Gastroenterology (OJGas) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojgas.2017.75017
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.
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.
Colonic adenocarcinoma revealing Crohn's disease: a case report

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

Primary Anorectal Melanomas Interest of Targeting C-KIT in Two Cases from a Series of 11 Patients  [PDF]
Karima Oualla, Nawfel Mellas, Fatimazahra El’mrabet, Samia Arifi, Afaf Amarti, Khalid Ait Taleb, Siham Tizniti, Omar Elmesbahi
Journal of Cancer Therapy (JCT) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jct.2014.53029

Background: The anorectal location of melanomas is extremely rare (1% - 3% of all melanomas), and the prognosis remains poor because of the aggressiveness and the high metastatic potential of those tumors. The discovery that the KIT oncogene may be aberrantly activated in a subset of patients with anorectal melanoma creates a realm of possibility for the development of targeted molecular therapy. Aim: to show the epidemiologic, clinico-radiological, histological features and treatment management especially in patients with over-expression of C-KIT treated by Imatinib. Methods: It is a retrospective study conducted in the department of medical oncology at Hassan II University Hospital between January 2007 and January 2012, including all patients with histologically proven melanoma of the anorectal area. Results: 11 cases were collected, with slight female predominance. Nine patients were metastatic at the moment of diagnosis, and only two with local stage, but evolution was marked by local and distant recurrence less than 12 months after abdo-minoperineal resection. First line of chemotherapy was based mainly on paclitaxel, carboplatine and dacarbazine. Response was modest with only 3 partial responses, 4 patients with disease stability, and 4 patients with disease progression. Two patients, with over expression of C-KIT, received Imatinib as second line of treatment with significant improvement of symptoms and radiological response reaching 50%. Seven patients died with a median survival of 11 months from diagnosis to the date of death. Conclusion: Primary anorectal melanomas are very rare, with high aggressiveness and poor prognosis. Treatment management is still a big challenge given to the modest efficacy of conventional chemotherapy. Better understanding of carcinogenesis and signaling pathways will allow development of new targeted therapies.

Abstract: Introduction: Acute mesenteric ischemia due to an embolism of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) is associated with a high mortality rate. Over twenty per cent of acute mesenteric embolism cases consist of multiple emboli. Case Presentation: We present a rare case of a 62-year-old man admitted with acute abdominal pain and signs of intestinal occlusion related to an acute mesenteric ischemia due to superior mesenteric arterial embolism. It was associated with a synchronous acute bilateral lower limb ischemia due to embolic arterial occlusion. He underwent an emergency explorative laparotomy with proximal jejunal resection, and the patient made an excellent recovery. As for the acute limb ischemia, it was treated by efficient anticoagulation allowing limb salvage. Conclusion: When treating a superior mesenteric arterial embolism, the possibility of recurrent or multiple arterial thromboembolic events should be considered. A prompt diagnosis, aggressive surgical treatment and intensive care could improve the prognosis.

Surgical Science (SS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2014.510073
Abstract: Necrotizing fasciitis is an infection of the skin and deep subcutaneous tissue. It is caused by bacteria (group A streptococcus), but may also be idiopathic ora secondary complication of surgery. We report a case of necrotizing fasciitis of the abdominal wall fostering a decompressive cranial flap in a 39-year-old patient.
