AbstractAbstract PDF
Lymphangioma is a congenital abnormality of the lymphatic system detected primarily in early childhood. There are rare reports of mediastinal lymphangioma in older adults. We hereby report on a 66-year-old female patient who underwent kidney transplantation 20 years previously and who developed pathologically confirmed solitary mediastinal lymphangioma 1 year ago. Chest radiography showed a mediastinal nodule, which was not observed 2 year previously, therefore she was referred to the pulmonary division. She had no symptoms, and chest computed tomography demonstrated a 25-mm, well-defined, low-density nodule located at the anterior mediastinum. The size of the nodule had increased from 25 mm to 34 mm 1 year later, and it was completely resected via video-assisted thoracic surgery. The histological diagnosis was cystic lymphangioma. Therefore, we recommend that clinicians consider cystic lymphangioma as a possible diagnosis even in older patients with a mediastinal cystic mass that shows progressive enlargement.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Isolated pigmentation of the terminal ileum is rare incidental finding when performing a colonoscopic examination. The common substances that cause gastrointestinal pigmentations are lipofuscin, iron sulphide(FeS), hemosiderin, and other exogenous materials such as silicates and titanium. In most cases, pigmentation of the terminal ileum has no subjective symptoms, so it is found in autopsy or incidental colonoscopic examination. The cause of pigmentation has not been clearly identified. We experienced a case of pigmentation of terminal ileum associated with long term charcoal ingestion. This finding supports that the source of ileal pigmentation is ingested material.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Gastric bezoars are usually occur in patients who have undergone gastric surgery and have delayed gastric emptying. Recently, the efficacy of nasogastric lavage or endoscopic injection therapy with Coca-Cola has been reported. But the complication like intestinal obstruction has poorly been reported. We report a case of gastric bezoar causing ileal obstruction during treatment with oral administration and endoscopic injection of Coca-Cola. A 53-year-old man was referred because of epigastric pain for a day. He had a history of subtotal gastrectomy with gastroduodenostomy since 8 years ago. On upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, about 6cm sized, dark-greenish hard bezoar was impacted at gastric antrum and about 3-5cm sized three bezoars were found at body. We injected Coca-Cola into the bezoar through the endoscopy and the patient was instructed to drink four liters of Coca-Cola per day. On the 12th day of admission, the patient complained severe abdominal pain. On plain abdominal X-ray and CT scan, small bowel obstruction at proximal ileum with bezoar was suspected and exploration was performed. About 4cm sized two bezoars were impacted at proximal ileum, and small bowel resection with primary closure after removal of bezoar was performed. The patient was discharged on the 10th postoperative day without any complication.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Bezoars are collections or concretions of indigestible foreign material that accumulate and coalesce in the gastrointestinal tract; they usually occur in patients who have undergone gastric surgery and have delayed gastric emptying. Treatment options include dissolution with enzymes, endoscopic fragmentation with removal or aspiration, and surgery. Recently, the efficacy of nasogastric lavage or endoscopic infusion of Coca-Cola for the dissolution of phytobezoar have been reported. We report a case of phytobezoar successfully treated by oral administration and endoscopic injection of Coca-Cola. A 62-year-old woman was referred to Yeungnam University Hospital for epigastric pain. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed one very large, dark-greenish, solid bezoar in the stomach with gastric ulcer and duodenal bulb deformity. We performed endoscopic injection of Coca-Cola into the bezoar. The patient was instructed to drink four liters of Coca-Cola per day. At endoscopy two days later, the phytobezoar was easily broken into pieces. At endoscopy on the 11th day of admission, the phytobezoar was decreased in size and removed by endoscopic fragmentation with a polypectomy snare. At follow up endoscopy after 13 days, the bezoar was completely dissolved.
