Meningitis is an infrequent and serious cause of postpartum fever that requires early diagnosis and treatment to prevent serious complications and to reduce the high mortality rate. Neuraxial anesthesia is a frequently used technique in obstetrics. Meningitis is a very rare complication of neuraxial anesthesia and enterococcus is only involved in exceptional cases.
Encephalitis caused by Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) and medulloblastoma are both fairly rare disorders with relatively poor prognoses. We experienced a case of HSV encephalitis (HSE) in which the patient presented 1 year after surgical resection and radiation therapy and 1 month after chemotherapy.
A 74-year-old man, non-smoker or alcoholic, underwent gastric bypass with stapled division of the stomach and Roux-en-Y gastrojejunostomy 20 years ago. A band was used to limit the emptying of the gastric pouch.
Preliminary Results of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation in Diarrhea-Predominant Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Case Series on 12 Patients
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is associated with intestinal dysbiosis and it has been suggested Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) has a positive effect on the condition. In this preliminary study, we recruited 12 IBS patients with moderate to severe diarrhea (IBS-D) and assessed the clinical outcomes of single FMT
Superior Mesenteric Artery syndrome (SMA Sd) is a very rare disease. It is suspected in the case of intestinal obstruction in severely underweight patients. When conservative management fails surgery becomes needed, with laparoscopic duodenojejunostomy being the best approach.
