AbstractAbstract PDF
Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the gastrointestinal tract that affects the large bowel. Its etiology remains controversial. However, an infectious or immunologic origin is considered the primary cause. The onset of UC is typically slow and insidious, but some patients may present acutely with symptoms mimicking infectious colitis. We report a case of ulcerative colitis mimicking acute hemorrhagic colitis at initial presentation. A 60-year-old man was referred to Yeungnam University Hospital for bloody diarrhea and abdominal pain. Sigmoidoscopy revealed mildly edematous mucosa in the rectum and hyperemic mucosa with petechiae in the sigmoid colon. The patient was treated with antibiotics for several days, and his symptoms improved. However, after one month, his bloody diarrhea relapsed. Follow-up sigmoidoscopy revealed mucosal friability in the rectum and sigmoid colon. He was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, and his symptoms were improved with mesalazine and a steroid enema.

AbstractAbstract PDF
The incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma presenting as obstructive jaundice is 0.7~9%. The mechanisms of obstructive jaundice include bile duct invasion by tumor, tumor thrombi, blood clots, direct bile duct compression by tumor, and intraductal tumor growth. We report a rare case of hepatocellular carcinoma with intraductal growth. A 46-year-old woman was admitted due to colicky right upper abdominal pain and jaundice for 4 days. Computed tomography showed dilatation of the left intrahepatic duct, and endoscopic retrograde cholangiography showed a filling defect in the left main intrahepatic duct. We performed a left lobectomy with a Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy. The tumor was diagnosed as a hepatocellular carcinoma with intraductal growth.

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.
