Microscopic polyangiitis: clinical and laboratory findings in eighty-five patients. (1/1491)

OBJECTIVE: To retrospectively analyze the clinical symptoms, laboratory findings, and outcomes in patients with microscopic polyangiitis (MPA) who were enrolled in various clinical trials conducted by the French Vasculitis Study Group. METHODS: A cohort of 85 patients meeting the Chapel Hill criteria for MPA participated in the study. Seventy-one of them were included in prospective therapeutic trials. Eighty-one diagnoses were biopsy proven. In the other patients, diagnosis was based on clinical findings. RESULTS: Forty-seven men and 38 women, with a mean +/- SD age of 56.8 +/- 14.6 years, met the criteria for MPA. Their main clinical symptoms were renal manifestations (78.8%), weight loss (72.9%), skin involvement (62.4%), fever (55.3%), mononeuritis multiplex (57.6%), arthralgias (50.6%), myalgias (48.2%), hypertension (34.1%), lung involvement (24.7%; alveolar hemorrhage 11.8%), and cardiac failure (17.6%). The mean +/- SD serum creatinine level before treatment was 2.59 +/- 2.96 mg/dl; 47 patients had renal insufficiency (serum creatinine > 1.36 mg/dl). Eight patients underwent dialysis at the time of diagnosis, and long-term dialysis was necessary for 10 patients. Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) were present in 38 of 51 patients (74.5%), of whom 33 had a perinuclear staining pattern (pANCA) and 5 had a cytoplasmic pattern. Antibodies to proteinase 3 were present in 4 patients and antibodies to myeloperoxidase were detected in 31, as determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Of the 30 patients who underwent renal and celiac angiography, 4 had microaneurysms. Of the 29 patients (34.1%) who had relapses, 8 died during or after the relapse. During followup, 28 of the 85 patients (32.9%) died. The mean +/- SD duration of followup of the group was 69.9 +/- 60.6 months. Deaths were less frequent when patients had been treated with steroids and immunosuppressive drugs (13 patients [24.1%]) than with steroids alone (15 patients [48.4%]) (P < 0.01). The 5-year survival rate was 74%. CONCLUSION: This study demonstrated that MPA is a multisystemic disease in which renal symptoms are frequent, but the disease is also associated with general symptoms, arthritis, mononeuritis multiplex, and other manifestations that are also seen in various vasculitides. The rarity of abnormal angiogram findings and the high frequency of pANCA are characteristic of MPA.

Splenic vein aneurysms are rare and are usually caused by portal hypertension. Symptoms are unusual, but may include rupture or abdominal pain. Diagnosis can usually be made either by means of duplex ultrasonography or computed tomography scanning. Treatment varies from noninvasive follow-up to aneurysm excision. We report an expanding splenic vein aneurysm in a young woman with abdominal and back pain and no history of portal hypertension. She was treated with aneurysm excision and splenectomy.  (+info)

Chronic abdominal pain in childhood: diagnosis and management. (3/1491)

More than one third of children complain of abdominal pain lasting two weeks or longer. The diagnostic approach to abdominal pain in children relies heavily on the history provided by the parent and child to direct a step-wise approach to investigation. If the history and physical examination suggest functional abdominal pain, constipation or peptic disease, the response to an empiric course of medical management is of greater value than multiple "exclusionary" investigations. A symptom diary allows the child to play an active role in the diagnostic process. The medical management of constipation, peptic disease and inflammatory bowel disease involves nutritional strategies, pharmacologic intervention and behavior and psychologic support.  (+info)

Simultaneous rupturing heterotopic pregnancy and acute appendicitis in an in-vitro fertilization twin pregnancy. (4/1491)

The presentation of acute abdominal pain in young women is not an unusual occurrence in casualty and gynaecology departments. Both acute appendicitis and ectopic pregnancy have to be considered and investigated, as these two conditions are accepted as the most common surgical causes of an acute abdomen. Difficulties in correctly identifying the cause of the pain can be hazardous to the patient and care needs to be taken in obtaining a prompt and accurate diagnosis enabling the most appropriate management. The case report presented here describes the extremely unusual occurrence of both these acute conditions happening simultaneously with the added complication of an ongoing twin pregnancy and it highlights the need to look beyond the most obvious diagnosis and always to expect the unexpected.  (+info)

Successful laparoscopic management of adnexal torsion during week 25 of a twin pregnancy. (5/1491)

Adnexal torsion is a rare occurrence during pregnancy. Here we present a case of adnexal torsion during the 25th week of pregnancy, which was managed laparoscopically. The woman had achieved a successful twin pregnancy after in-vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection. She was admitted to the emergency department with acute abdominal pain. Abdominal ultrasound with colour Doppler mapping of the intra-ovarian blood flow showed adnexal torsion. Laparoscopic management was successfully carried out.  (+info)

Unusual presentation of spinal cord compression related to misplaced pedicle screws in thoracic scoliosis. (6/1491)

Utilization of thoracic pedicle screws is controversial, especially in the treatment of scoliosis. We present a case of a 15-year-old girl seen 6 months after her initial surgery for scoliosis done elsewhere. She complained of persistent epigastric pain, tremor of the right foot at rest, and abnormal feelings in her legs. Clinical examination revealed mild weakness in the right lower extremity, a loss of thermoalgic discrimination, and a forward imbalance. A CT scan revealed at T8 and T10 that the right pedicle screws were misplaced by 4 mm in the spinal canal. At the time of the revision surgery the somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP) returned to normal after screw removal. The clinical symptoms resolved 1 month after the revision. The authors conclude that after pedicle instrumentation at the thoracic level a spinal cord compression should be looked for in case of subtle neurologic findings such as persistent abdominal pain, mild lower extremity weakness, tremor at rest, thermoalgic discrimination loss, or unexplained imbalance.  (+info)

Empirically supported treatments in pediatric psychology: recurrent abdominal pain. (8/1491)

OBJECTIVE: To review the status of empirically supported treatments for recurrent abdominal pain (RAP). METHODS: We identified studies based on literature search and contact with experts in the field and evaluated studies based on guidelines modified from the criteria established by the Task Force on Promotion and Dissemination of Psychological Procedures. RESULTS: Nine published intervention studies were identified that fell into three distinctive approaches: operant procedures, fiber treatments, and cognitive-behavioral treatments. CONCLUSIONS: Operant procedures did not meet even the most lenient category (promising intervention) of the guidelines. Fiber treatment for RAP associated with constipation met the criteria for a promising intervention. Cognitive-behavioral treatment met the criteria for a probably efficacious intervention. We discuss implications and offer recommendations for future intervention research.  (+info)

About 15 to 20 percent of individuals living in the United States have chronic abdominal pain, often of unknown origin, which is often difficult to diagnose and treat. One possible cause of chronic abdominal pain is an inflammation of the intestines, but it is not known whether the two are related. Furthermore, although overweight people tend to be more likely to have increased inflammation, it is not known whether there is a connection between increased body weight and chronic abdominal pain. This study will examine the relationship between symptoms of chronic abdominal pain and intestinal inflammation by comparing the medical test results of normal weight and overweight patients who have a history of chronic abdominal pain.. This study will include 224 subjects, who must be men and women between the ages of 13 and 45. Half the subjects will be healthy participants, and half will have had chronic abdominal pain of unknown origin for longer than 6 months. Female participants must take a urine ...
Abdominal adhesions can cause bowel obstruction, infertility, and chronic abdominal pain. In this review adhesion-related chronic abdominal pain, diagnostic laparoscopy and laparoscopic adhesiolysis as a treatment for chronic abdominal pain are discussed. There is no difference in benefit with the use of diagnostic laparoscopy versus laparoscopic adhesiolysis. Considering the risk of complications associated with laparoscopic adhesiolysis, it should no longer be recommended as therapy for adhesion-related chronic abdominal pain.
BACKGROUND: Chronic, recurrent abdominal pain is common among children and adolescents. It interferes with everyday life, causes absence from school, and leads to frequent medical consultations, often involving burdensome diagnostic testing and protracted attempts at treatment. METHOD: Selective review of the literature. RESULTS: Organic causes should be ruled out with a thorough medical history and physical examination and a small number of laboratory tests. The pediatric Rome III criteria include valid diagnostic criteria for functional abdominal pain in childhood. The available data imply that this condition is best treated with cognitive behavioral therapy, rather than with medications or dietary measures. CONCLUSION: A systematic approach to chronic recurrent abdominal pain in children and adolescents is key to ruling out organic diseases while avoiding unnecessary tests and treatments.

Chronic functional abdominal pain (CFAP) or functional abdominal pain syndrome (FAPS)[1] is the ongoing presence of abdominal pain for which there is no known medical explanation. It is quite similar to, but less common than, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and many of the same treatments for IBS can also be of benefit to those with CFAP. The fundamental difference between IBS and CFAP is that in CFAP, unlike in IBS, there is no change in bowel habits such as constipation or diarrhea. Bowel dysfunction is a necessary diagnostic criterion of IBS. CFAP is characterized by chronic pain, with no physical explanation or findings (no structural, infectious, or mechanical causes can be found). It is theorized that CFAP is a disorder of the nervous system where normal nociceptive nerve impulses are amplified like a stereo system turned up too loud resulting in pain. This visceral hypersensitivity may be a stand-alone cause of CFAP, or CFAP may result from the same type of brain-gut nervous system ...

Patients undergoing appendicectomy, attending a gastroenterology clinic or admitted to hospital after self-poisoning have been examined using the same reliable measures to establish whether life events and psychiatric illness preceded abdominal pain. Life events involving threat were experienced more commonly by those with organic and functional abdominal illness, compared with community comparison subjects. The greatest difference was with severe events, especially those involving the break-up of close relationships, which preceded the development of functional abdominal pain as often as they occurred before self-poisoning, and significantly more frequently than before the onset of organic gastrointestinal illness. Abdominal pain of recent onset, for which no organic cause is found, is often preceded by environmental stress, whether it presents to the surgeon or the physician. Those presenting in the clinic were older than those undergoing appendicectomy and had experienced more long lasting ...
This is an important study conducted by an outstanding group of researchers, John Campo, M.D., chair of psychiatry at Ohio State University, told Psychiatric News. Campo has conducted research on this subject in the past. A cross-sectional relationship between functional abdominal pain and anxiety has been noted in multiple studies in children, adolescents, and adults, but the nature of this observed comorbidity is unclear....This studys findings that functional abdominal pain and anxiety are associated longitudinally into adulthood offers some support for the notion that functional abdominal pain and anxiety may share common risk factors or perhaps even be manifestations of a common disorder. ...
Recurrent abdominal pain (RAP) in children is defined as at least three episodes of pain that occur over at least three months and affect the childs ability to perform normal activities. RAP is most often considered functional (nonorganic) abdominal pain, but an organic cause is found in 5% to 10% of cases. Further workup is warranted in children who have RAP and fever, vomiting, blood in the stool, more than three alarm symptoms, or a history of urinary tract infections. Physical examination findings that should prompt further workup include weight loss or failure to grow; jaundice; costovertebral tenderness or back pain with lower extremity neurologic symptoms; liver, spleen, or kidney enlargement; an abdominal mass; or localized tenderness on abdominal examination. Workup may include complete blood count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein level, fecal guaiac testing, fecal ova and parasite testing, or urinalysis.

To determine within one tertiary care center: 1) the variation between providers in testing for celiac disease in children with chronic abdominal pain; 2) the characteristics of those children who were more likely to be tested, and 3) the prevalence of celiac disease in those evaluated. Retrospective review of children with a primary complaint of chronic abdominal pain referred to a tertiary care childrens hospital for pediatric gastroenterology evaluation over a 2-year period was conducted. Children with at least two visits and without an identified organic etiology for the pain were included. 160 children were evaluated by 16 pediatric gastroenterologists and one nurse practitioner. Celiac serologic testing was completed in 63 (39.4%) children. There was no significant variance in the frequency of celiac serologic testing between providers. Child age, gender, body mass index, and baseline gastrointestinal symptoms did not predict whether celiac serologic testing occurred, though Caucasians (P | 0.01)
BACKGROUND & AIMS: Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most abundant cannabinoid from the plant Cannabis sativa. There is only equivocal evidence that THC has analgesic effects. We performed a phase 2 controlled trial to evaluate the analgesic efficacy, pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of an oral tablet containing purified THC in patients with chronic abdominal pain. METHODS: Sixty-five patients with chronic abdominal pain for 3 months or more (numeric rating scale scores of 3 or more) after surgery or because of chronic pancreatitis were randomly assigned to groups given the THC tablet or identical matching placebos for 50-52 days. Subjects in the THC group were given the tablet first in a step-up phase (3 mg 3 times daily for 5 days and then 5 mg 3 times daily for 5 days), followed by a stable dose phase (8 mg 3 times daily until days 50-52). Preceding and during the entire study period, patients were asked to continue taking their medications (including analgesics) according ...

This study aims to determine the relative efficacy, tolerability, and safety of the citalopram in the treatment of pediatric functional recurrent abdominal pain (FAP) in children and adolescents ages 7 to 18 years, inclusive. The goal is to recruit and randomize 100 subjects to citalopram or placebo. Secondary aims include to determine if citalopram is superior to placebo in reducing comorbid anxiety and depressive symptoms in children and adolescents with FAP, to explore potential mediators (i.e., anxiety, depression) and moderators (e.g., age, gender, referral from primary or specialty care) of treatment response, and to explore the durability and tolerability of citalopram treatment 18 weeks following completion of the double-blind treatment phase with the goal of generating data useful to the development of future studies. The study is novel in conducting recruitment, assessment, and treatment in traditional medical settings. Limited exclusion criteria and the delivery of study assessments ...

Abdominal pain of unknown origin affects up to 20% of school-aged children. Evaluation of children is symptom-based without clear guidelines to investigate molecular mechanisms of abdominal pain. Aberrant molecular mechanisms may increase intestinal permeability leading to interactions between the immune and nervous systems, subclinical inflammation, and visceral pain. This study evaluated the association between interleukin-6 (IL-6), mast cell infiltrates, and serotonin (5-HT) levels in gastrointestinal (GI) biopsies, with perceived abdominal pain in a pediatric cohort. Clinical data and biopsy samples from pediatric patients (n = 48) with chronic abdominal pain, with and without inflammation were included. Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded GI biopsies were sectioned and immunohistochemistry performed for IL-6 and 5-HT; mast cells were identified with toluidine blue stain. Histological findings were compared to self-reported abdominal pain between groups. There was significantly greater IL-6

Functional abdominal pain disorders (FAPDs), such as irritable bowel syndrome and functional dyspepsia, are highly prevalent around the world. In children, these disorders are associated with multiple comorbidities, poor quality of life, school absenteeism and enormous costs of care.. A recent multinational study evaluated the prevalence of FAPDs in children with celiac disease (CD) and controls and found surprising results suggesting that not all types of gastrointestinal inflammation lead to FAPDs in children.. The pathogenesis of FAPDs is not completely understood, and numerous studies in adults and children have shown that FAPDs are frequently preceded by intestinal inflammation, says Miguel Saps, MD, an attending gastroenterologist in the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at Nationwide Childrens Hospital and leader of the study, published in the Journal of Pediatrics. Approximately one in three children who have a bacterial acute gastroenteritis develop FAPDs that ...

The time course of the pain is a pivotal feature. Some diseases present subacutely/chronically over weeks to months or years (eg, IBS) whereas others present acutely, within hours to days of onset (eg, appendicitis). In patients with their first episode of acute severe abdominal pain, a variety of life-threatening, must not miss diagnoses must be considered (eg, AAA). Many of these diseases that cause acute abdominal pain cannot recur because patients are either treated or die of complications (eg, AAA, acute appendicitis, splenic rupture.) Since prior episodes are incompatible with many of these diagnoses, a history of such prior episodes narrows the differential diagnosis. Therefore, the differential diagnosis of abdominal pain can be organized based on whether patients are presenting with their (1) first episode of acute abdominal pain, (2) a recurrent episode of acute abdominal pain, or (3) chronic/subacute abdominal pain. Table 3-1 outlines the typical time course associated with different ...

Nurses are at increased risk for job burnout, which can lead to psychological and physical problems, decreased quality of care, and premature exit from the profession. Studies have found common predictors of burnout in multiple service occupations, but there are important differences across settings. The current study used embedded mixed-method analyses to explore burnout in a sample of nurses that work with patients with chronic abdominal pain. Thirty-two nurses participated in focus groups and data analyses revealed the following six themes: negative pain beliefs, barriers to effective pain management, nurse empathy/compassion, moral distress, coping methods, and burnout. These themes were evaluated with proposed theoretical frameworks and the extant literature to build the Pediatric Chronic Pain Nurse Burnout model. The constructs in this model were then evaluated quantitatively via measures completed by 41 nurses. Analyses provided partial support for the model and highlighted areas for further

The Rome diagnostic criteria for the functional bowel disorders and functional abdominal pain are used widely in research and practice. A committee consensus approach, including criticism from multinational expert reviewers, was used to revise the diagnostic criteria and update diagnosis and treatment recommendations, based on research results. The terminology was clarified and the diagnostic criteria and management recommendations were revised. A functional bowel disorder (FBD) is diagnosed by characteristic symptoms for at least 12 weeks during the preceding 12 months in the absence of a structural or biochemical explanation. The irritable bowel syndrome, functional abdominal bloating, functional constipation, and functional diarrhea are distinguished by symptom-based diagnostic criteria. Unspecified FBD lacks criteria for the other FBDs. Diagnostic testing is individualized, depending on patient age, primary symptom characteristics, and other clinical and laboratory features. Functional ...

Functional gastrointestinal disorders are common in children and adolescents with complaints of abdominal pain. Our brains and our GI tracts are closely connected (the mind-body connection). Functional GI conditions are due to a combination of extra sensitivity of the GI tract, with changes in the motility or movement of the digestive system. Our stomachs and intestines are moving food all the time, and some people feel this more intensely than other people. Its as if the volume has been turned up from their GI tract. When their brains receive these sensations, its reaction can change the motion of the GI tract. These conditions are common, sometimes run in families, and are usually found in individuals who are otherwise healthy. In children, that means they are growing well, have normal lab and x-ray results, and dont have alarm symptoms like blood in the stool, weight loss or fevers.

A new study led by a University of Iowa researcher showed that acute and chronic constipation together accounted for nearly half of all cases of acute abdominal pain in children treated at one hospital..

Earlier studies have shown that constipation can contribute to abdominal pain in children, but no specific recommendations for diagnosing this contributing factor were made, said Vera Loening-Baucke, M.D., professor of pediatrics at the UI Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine and the studys lead investigator.. Constipation can be overlooked as the cause of severe or intermittent abdominal pain, ...

If your child meets the criteria for a functional gastrointestinal disorder, your physician may choose to do some tests to confirm the absence of disease, such as upper endoscopy for dyspepsia, or blood tests for celiac disease or inflammatory bowel disease.. Many children have bellyaches that do not meet the criteria for a functional gastrointestinal disorder, often because the symptoms are not as frequent, or have not been going on for as long as required for the symptom-based diagnosis.. Some children with functional abdominal pains get pale skin or blotchy skin, dizziness or faintness, or fatigue when they get a bellyache. These are signs of autonomic arousal, the chemical and hormone response of the body to the stress of a bellyache. Some children get headaches or body aches at the same time they get bellyaches.. If your child seems to have the symptoms that qualify as a functional gastrointestinal disorder, it is a good idea to learn more about these disorders by visiting your childs ...

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a multifactorial disorder marked by recurrent abdominal pain or discomfort and altered bowel function. It affects between 10 and 20 percent of people in the developed world, about one-third of whom have IBS associated with diarrhea (IBS-D).. Certain factors that alter gastrointestinal function can contribute to IBS symptoms, including stress, prior gastroenteritis, changes in the gut microbiome, and bile acids and short-chain fatty acids, which may stimulate serotonin (5-HT) release and increase colonic permeability and motility.. Still, the underlying cause of IBS in many cases remains unknown. Michael Camilleri, M.D., of Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., says the ultimate goal is a better understanding of the mechanisms behind this syndrome so we can foster individualized, specific treatment for IBS patients. So far, that goal remains unrealized.. The only drug currently approved for IBS-D is alosetron, a 5-HT3 antagonist that may relieve abdominal pain and ...
Acquired angioedema due to C1 inhibitor deficiency (C1INH-AAE) is a rare and potentially fatal syndrome of bradykinin-mediated angioedema characterized by episodes of angioedema without urticaria. It typically manifests with nonpitting edema of the skin and edema in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract mucosa or upper airway. Edema of the upper airway and tongue may lead to life-threatening asphyxiation. C1INH-AAE is typically under-diagnosed because of its rarity and its propensity to mimic more common abdominal conditions and allergic reactions. In this article, we present the case of a 62-year-old male with a history of recently diagnosed chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) who presented to our hospital with recurrent abdominal pain, initially suspected to have

Recurrent lower abdominal pain that has persisted for two years should not be anything acute and immediately worrisome (like appendicitis). There are so many organs in the abdomen that it is often hard to sort out what it could be. An ultrasound would have ruled out an abscess, a tumor, a fluid collection and dilated kidneys, but would not always be able to be helpful. Regarding the bowel, it is important to assess that she is having regular bowel movements, to rule out constipation, and to check the stool for blood. Her kidney and urinary tract system could (less likely) be involved, and screening her urine for a chronic urinary tract infection should be done. Finally, her genital system could be involved. I will assume by her age that she has already started menstruation. There is a recurrent abdominal pain that occurs during ovulation (called mittelschmerz) that some women feel; if she is regular this would occur about two weeks after her period started. Ovarian cysts can present with ...
The purpose was to evaluate the overlap frequency of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and overactive bladder syndrome (OBS), as well as other gastrointestinal and systemic symptoms, in functional dyspepsia (FD). Additionally, we sought to determine whether adult Rome III FD subtypes were uniquely related to overlap syndromes or symptoms. The study was a retrospective review of 100 consecutive pediatric patients, age 8-17 years, diagnosed with FD. All had completed a standardized medical history including gastrointestinal and systemic symptoms as well as specific symptoms related to GERD and OBS. The frequency of overlap with IBS, GERD, and OBS were determined for the whole group and for those fulfilling adult FD subtype criteria. Individual symptoms were also compared by FD subtype. Overlap IBS was present in 33 % of the FD patients. At least one GERD symptom was present in 74 % of patients with 41 % reporting heartburn. At least one OBS symptom was present in 44 %

In Emergency Medicine Journal, Laura Medford-Davis and colleagues evaluate possible diagnostic errors and associated process breakdowns for patients who presented to the emergency department (ED) with abdominal pain. The authors conducted a retrospective chart review of adult ED patients at an urban academic hospital, using a computerized algorithm to identify high-risk patients. They considered patients to be high-risk if they presented to the ED with abdominal pain and were discharged, but returned to the ED within 10 days and were then hospitalized. Diagnostic errors were defined as missed opportunities to make a correct or timely diagnosis based on the evidence available during the first ED visit, regardless of patient harm, and included errors that involved both ED and non-ED providers. The authors find that diagnostic errors occurred in 35 out of 100 high-risk cases. Over two-thirds had process breakdowns involving the patient-provider encounter (most commonly history-taking or ordering ...
