Risk of human immunodeficiency virus infection and genital ulcer disease among persons attending a sexually transmitted disease clinic in Italy. (1/631)

To assess the relative importance of ulcerative and non-ulcerative sexually transmitted disease in the transmission of HIV, a seroprevalence study was conducted on 2210 patients at the sexually transmitted diseases (STD) clinic of the S. Maria e S. Gallicano Hospital in Rome, between 1989 and 1994. Among male patients, by univariate analysis, strong predictors of HIV infection were homosexuality, sexual exposure to a HIV-positive partner, hepatitis B virus infection, and positive syphilis serology. An increased risk was estimated for patients with past genital herpes (odds ratio (OR) 3.86, 95% confidence intervals (CI) 0.40-18.2), and primary syphilis (OR 5.79, 95% CI 0.59-28.6). By multivariate analysis, a positive association was found with homosexuality (OR 6.9, 95% CI 2.9-16.5), and positive syphilis serology (OR 3.5, 95% CI 1.3-9.2). An adjusted OR of 2.41 was calculated for current and/or past genital herpes. These results, although not conclusive, suggest a role of ulcerative diseases as risk factors for prevalent HIV infection, and indicate that positive syphilis serology is an unbiased criterion for identifying individuals at increased risk of HIV infection.  (+info)

The pathophysiology of disseminated Mycobacterium avium complex disease in AIDS. (2/631)

Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) organisms cause disseminated disease in patients with AIDS. The organisms penetrate the gastrointestinal mucosa by unknown mechanisms and are phagocytosed by macrophages in the lamina propria. These cells cannot kill the organisms, and MAC spreads through the submucosal tissue. Lymphatic drainage transports mycobacteria to abdominal lymph nodes, from which the organisms enter the bloodstream. Hematogenous spread can occur to many sites, but spleen, bone marrow, and liver are the most common. Tissue destruction is rare, and most signs and symptoms of MAC disease are due to elaboration of cytokines. MAC is rarely the direct cause of death but increases the risk for superinfection; death may result from malnutrition or other infections.  (+info)

Penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer at the proximal aorta complicated with cardiac tamponade and aortic valve regurgitation. (3/631)

A 56-year-old man had a penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer originating in the proximal ascending aorta, which is an unusual case of penetrating aortic ulcer complicated with the aortic valve regurgitation and cardiac tamponade. This hemodynamically unstable patient was successfully treated by conservative management to control his blood pressure and was also monitored closely with follow-up imaging studies.  (+info)

Small intestinal ulceration secondary to carcinoid tumour arising in a Meckel's diverticulum. (4/631)

A solitary small intestinal ulcer associated with a carcinoid tumour in a nearby Meckel's diverticulum was found in a 77 year old man presenting with massive rectal bleeding. Angiography and a radioisotope study localised the bleeding to the ileum. At operation, the Meckel's diverticulum was identified, with bleeding from an ulcer just distal to it. Pathological examination revealed a small carcinoid tumour confined to the Meckel's diverticulum. Close to the opening of the diverticulum, within the ileum, a well demarcated ulcer was present. Histology showed a non-specific ulcer which eroded a large blood vessel. This is the first documented occurrence of solitary small intestinal ulceration in association with a carcinoid tumour. Carcinoid tumour should be added to the list of possible causes of small intestinal ulceration. The ulceration may be secondary to release of cytokines by the tumour.  (+info)

Thalidomide for the treatment of esophageal aphthous ulcers in patients with human immunodeficiency virus infection. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease AIDS Clinical Trials Group. (5/631)

A multicenter, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial was conducted to determine the safety and efficacy of thalidomide for treating esophageal aphthous ulceration in persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Twenty-four HIV-infected patients with biopsy-confirmed aphthous ulceration of the esophagus were randomly assigned to receive either oral thalidomide, 200 mg/day, or oral placebo daily for 4 weeks. Eight (73%) of 11 patients randomized to receive thalidomide had complete healing of aphthous ulcers at the 4-week endoscopic evaluation, compared with 3 (23%) of 13 placebo-randomized patients (odds ratio, 13.82; 95% confidence interval, 1.16-823.75; P=.033). Odynophagia and impaired eating ability caused by esophageal aphthae were improved markedly by thalidomide treatment. Adverse events among patients receiving thalidomide included somnolence (4 patients), rash (2 patients), and peripheral sensory neuropathy (3 patients). Thalidomide is effective in healing aphthous ulceration of the esophagus in patients infected with HIV.  (+info)

Fas receptor up-regulation and membrane localization concurrent with apoptosis in idiopathic esophageal ulceration: toward a better understanding of esophageal injury in AIDS. (6/631)

Activation of the Fas-mediated apoptotic pathway in the etiology of idiopathic esophageal ulcerations (IEUs) was investigated. Constitutive expression of Fas ligand (Fas L) was found in the basal layer of the normal esophageal mucosa and in IEUs and cytomegalovirus ulcerations. In addition to an altered cytokine environment, there was significant up-regulation of Fas antigen mRNA and membrane localization of the receptor in IEU specimens. Concomitant increase in the basic components of Fas machinery, together with elevated mucosal apoptosis, strongly suggests the potential role of the Fas signaling pathway in the onset of tissue destruction associated with IEUs.  (+info)

Leishmania amazonensis infection in nude mice. (7/631)

Leishmania amazonensis is an intracellular protozoan parasite of macrophages. Cutaneous leishmaniasis in an immunocompetent host begins as papules or nodules followed by ulceration at the site of promastigote inoculation. In this study, the pathological changes of cutaneous leishmaniasis lesions in T cell deficient nude mice were examined. When infected with L. amazonensis promastigotes, nude mice developed non-ulcerative cutaneous nodules. By histological examination of cutaneous lesions, massive accumulation of vacuolated histiocytes containing amastigotes was observed in all the nude mice. Although infiltration of mononuclear and polymorphonuclear cells was seen in the lesions of immunocompetent mice, few such cells were observed in the lesions of nude mice. These results indicate the importance of T cells on the ulcer formation in cutaneous leishmaniasis.  (+info)

Accuracy and economics of Helicobacter pylori diagnosis. (8/631)

Many diagnostic tests are available to establish Helicobacter pylori infection status. Most of the tests are accurate though none works perfectly, and no gold standard for diagnosis exists. Newly developed serum immunoassay kits can substitute for laboratory-based enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays, but whole blood immunoassays do not yet demonstrate adequate performance characteristics. Serologic diagnosis of H. pylori remains the most cost-effective option and should be utilized to establish initial infection in the majority of cases. If rapid urease testing is performed at endoscopy, negative results can be confirmed with a subsequent serologic test in those patients with a high probability of infection. Obtaining additional gastric tissue at endoscopy to evaluate for bacterial infection is reasonable if specimens are being taken for a mucosal defect. Confirmation of bacterial eradication cannot be justified for all post-treatment patients at present due to the expense. It is important to test for cure in those patients with complicated ulcer disease and those with recurrent symptoms after therapy.  (+info)

Penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer rupturing into the esophagus is rare and the resulting aortoesophageal fistula carries a high mortality. In view of the emergency nature of the entity and complexity of the procedure management of such a condition is not standardized. The immediate concern is to save the patient from life threatening exsanguinations. Contrary to the practice hitherto followed no active surgical intervention was carried out for the esophageal lesion and cardiopulmonary bypass support was not employed. We present a case of rupture of a penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer of descending thoracic aorta, where in an emergency surgery was performed and the patient is doing well 21 months later.

Penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer is characterized by ulceration that penetrates through the elastic lamina into the media, and is associated with a variable amount of haematoma within the aortic wall. Haematoma formation may extend along the media, resulting in aortic dissection. In some cases, haematoma extension causes stretching of the weakened aortic wall, leading to the formation of a saccular aneurysm. Rupture is an eventual outcome. This entity has to be distinguished from atheromatous ulcers that are confined to the intima layer, aneurysms and classic aortic dissection. Although they typically involve the descending thoracic aorta (mostly the middle or distal portion), penetrating atherosclerotic ulcers can also involve the abdominal aorta and seldom are multiple. Typical CT features of penetrating ulcers include focal involvement with adjacent subintimal haematoma located beneath the frequently calcified and inwardly displaced intima, often associated with thickening or enhancement of ...
Intestinal ulcer. Close-up of a peptic ulcer in the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. Peptic ulcers result from the caustic (burning) effects of acid and pepsin in the lining of the stomach or intestines. If the ulcer becomes too severe it can perforate the lining and leak into the abdominal cavity. However, if the ulcer erodes one of the blood vessels then the resultant severe bleeding can be life-threatening. - Stock Image C022/7233

Drug-induced mitochondrial dysfunction has been implicated in many types of organ toxicity, including liver and intestine. The induction of the mitochondrial permeability transition (mPT) has been seen as a mechanism of this toxicity. The mitochondrial matrix protein cyclophilin D (CypD) is a key regulator of the mPT, lending itself as a potential target for therapeutic intervention. The overall aim of this research project is to explore the mPT as a potential mediator of drug-induced mitochondrial toxicity in intestine and liver. Small intestinal ulceration is a frequent and serious adverse effect associated with the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Mitochondria have been implicated in ulcer development. We have shown that inhibition of the mPT pore by pharmacologic blockade of CypD resulted in significant protection from diclofenac injury in cultured enterocytes and a 70% reduction in intestinal ulcers in mice. Furthermore, Ppif-/- (the gene encoding CypD) mice show 80% ulcer reduction

Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) can affect any horse. It can cause discomfort and may have a detrimental effect on behaviour and performance but new research has confirmed that a suitable diet can help to manage the condition, especially after veterinary treatment is stopped.. EGUS refers to the ulceration of the horses stomach lining. Several factors, including nutrition, have been shown to increase the risk of ulcers occurring, particularly in the non-glandular (squamous) part of the stomach. In horses that are actively exercising and training, the incidence of gastric ulceration has been reported to be up to 90% in some sub-populations. Whilst dietary and management changes are often recommended to help reduce the risk of EGUS they are also suggested in conjunction with or following veterinary pharmaceutical treatment. However, until now there has been little published work to confirm their benefit under such circumstances.. The new research study on the effect of changing diet on ...

The four major acute aortic syndromes are aortic rupture (discussed above), aortic dissection, intramural hematoma, and penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer. Aortic dissection is caused by a circumferential or, less frequently, transverse tear of the intima. It often occurs along the right lateral wall of the ascending aorta where the hydraulic shear stress is high. Another common site is the descending thoracic aorta just below the ligamentum arteriosum. The initiating event is either a primary intimal tear with secondary dissection into the media or a medial hemorrhage that dissects into and disrupts the intima. The pulsatile aortic flow then dissects along the elastic lamellar plates of the aorta and creates a false lumen. The dissection usually propagates distally down the descending aorta and into its major branches, but it may propagate proximally. Distal propagation may be limited by atherosclerotic plaque. In some cases, a secondary distal intimal disruption occurs, resulting in the reentry ...
Objectives. The proposed project is a randomised placebo-controlled, double-blinded, multicentric therapeutic trial evaluating the association of antiherpetic treatment to the syndromic treatment for the management genital ulcers in Africa, and its impact on the genital shedding of HIV and of Herpes simplex hominis type 2 (HSV-2) virus.. Background. Recent epidemiological studies have shown that infection with HSV-2 is highly prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa, and that HSV-2 seropositivity is a marker of high-risk sexual behaviour. HSV-2 infection is increasingly being recognised as one of the commonest causes of genital ulceration in many African countries. HSV-2 infection may act as a major cofactor for HIV transmission, a fact that has long been underestimated. First, genital ulcers (caused by HSV-2) are by themselves cofactors of HIV transmission, either by increasing infectiousness of dually infected individuals (HSV+/HIV+), or by increasing susceptibility of the seronegative partner. Second, ...

Ulcers are painful sores that occur in the stomach or, more often, in the upper part of the small intestine, which is called the duodenum. As much as 10 percent of North Americans, and four times more men than women, have intestinal ulcers. There are two types of ulcers: gastric (or peptic) and duodenal. It is very difficult to determine the location of an ulcer by symptoms alone, but almost all ulcers follow a pattern: Pain occurs as acid burns the open sore; food brings temporary relief by

Treatment of As the name implies, solitary rectal ulcer syndrome is a condition in which, typically, a single ulcer occurs in the rectum - producing signs such as rectal bleeding and straining when you pass bowel movements, In some cases, solitary rectal ulcer syndrome can result in more than one lesion or in lesions that arent ulcers, such as polyp-like masses. This rare and poorly understood disorder occurs in people with chronic constipation and may be due to injury to the rectum. Solitary rectal ulcer syndrome affects an estimated one in 100,000 people and can be recurrent, Because solitary rectal ulcer syndrome is rare, its best diagnosed and treated by a specialist in disorders of the colon and rectum. Treatments range from changing your diet and fluid intake in mild cases to medications or surgery, Rectal Ulcer, Rectal Ulcer Causes, Rectal Ulcer Definition, Rectal Ulcer Diagnosis, Rectal Ulcer Symptoms, Rectal Ulcer Treatment, Rectal Ulcer Cures, Rectal Ulcer Problem, Rectal Ulcer Complications
Solitary Rectal Ulcer Syndrome (SRUS) is a poorly understood condition and the optimal treatment controversial. Here we present the successful surgical resolution of a substantial Solitary Rectal Ulcer Syndrome in a 32 year old female in whom conservative treatment measures had failed. Rectal endosonography and a defecating proctogram demonstrated evidence of a significant rectal intussuseption but no rectal prolapse. The patient underwent surgical excision of the ulcer and a Delorme procedure which led to a complete resolution of her symptoms. Through a description of her management we discus the presentation, investigation and optimal management of Solitary Rectal Ulcer Syndrome and demonstrate the successful role of surgery in patients with an underlying intussuseption.. ...
SRUS is a rare benign condition where individuals experience difficult defecation. It is characterized by mucosal prolapse, tenesmus, rectal bleeding, constipation, and the passage of mucus, or rectal pain. The patient in the current case predominately experienced abdominal pain and gastrointestinal hemorrhaging. Previously, SRUS and MPS were not considered as separate conditions. In recent articles, however, SRUS is categorized as a type of MPS, whereas MPS is classified as a category of the bowel diseases consisting of rectal prolapse, inflammatory cap polyp, proctitis cystica profunda (PCP), inflammatory cloacogenic polyp, inflammatory myoglandular polyp, and SRUS (4, 5). Both MPS and SRUS may share the same clinical pathological features.. The etiology of SRUS may be associated with certain lifestyles, the Sjogren syndrome (6), spinal cord injury (7), pregnancy (8), enema use or insertion of suppositories (9), and living habits such as the use of bidets (10), staying in the bathroom for a ...

HIV-seropositive persons are at increased risk of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Genital ulcerative disease and sexually transmitted infection with subsequent MRSA infection in HIV-seropositive persons have been documented only once. We report a case of a 44-year-old man who presented to the Infectious Diseases Institute, Kampala, Uganda, with chronic genital ulcer disease and who subsequently developed MRSA urethritis and bacteraemia. This case also demonstrates that persistent genital ulcer disease in HIV-seropositive persons may be as a result of concurrent MRSA infection.
Thalidomide appears to be highly effective for oropharyngeal apthous ulcers in HIV-infected patients. However, there are limited data regarding the use of this drug for the treatment of HIV-associated idiopathic esophageal ulcer(s) (IEU). Twelve HIV-infected patients with esophageal symptoms and IEU as defined by previously proposed criteria were studied prospectively. Two of these patients had failed oral corticosteroid treatment, and two others had a previous history of IEU. Patients were treated with thalidomide (200 mg/day orally) for 28 days in an open label fashion. Clinical evaluation was performed weekly with endoscopic reexamination performed at the completion of treatment. After therapy, patients were followed clinically with endoscopy recommended for recurrent esophageal symptoms. Of the 12 treated patients, 11 (92%) had a complete symptomatic response; endoscopy in 11 patients at the completion of treatment showed 9 with complete ulcer healing, 1 partially healed, and 1 with no ...

Background: The epidemiology of human papillomavirus (HPV) in Tanzania is largely unknown both in risk groups and in the general population.. Objective: To determine the cumulative seroprevalence of selected HPV types in order to evaluate exposure to HPV in urban Tanzania.. Method: In a cross-sectional study, sera of 200 patients of both sexes with genital ulcer disease (GUD) and sera of 60 male blood donors and 60 pregnant women were tested for antibodies to the oncogenic HPV types 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 51 and 52 using an ELISA based on virus-like particles (VLP).. Results: The overall seroprevalence of HPV types for all patients with GUD was 83% and 77% for women and men, respectively. For pregnant women and male blood donors, the corresponding percentages were 55% and 15%, respectively. The most common HPV types were 16, 18 and 52. Infection with multiple types was more than 10 and 5 times more frequent than infection with a single type 16 in patients with GUD and in pregnant women, ...
Esophageal Ulcer usually occurs in the lower end of a patient esophagus. Esophageal ulcers as other types of Ulcers are caused by the harmful bacteria and that is why most doctors will recommend their patients to use antibiotics to kill these harmful bacteria. Esophageal Ulcer patients may also feel a lot of pain some times and this pain will increase as the Ulcer will come in contact with the acid present in the stomach. The patient may also feel difficulty in swallowing and may not eat normally. If this is the case than one must have to be more careful and chew the food very thoroughly before eating as it can be extremely painful in the throat.. 2: Bleeding Ulcer. Sometime internal bleeding is caused by a peptic ulcer if that ulcer has been left untreated for a long time. When this occurs, it is now referred to as a bleeding ulcer and is the most dangerous type of ulcer. It requires an immediate treatment.. 3: Refractory Ulcer ...

Acute aortic syndrome (AAS) describes a range of severe, painful, potentially life-threatening abnormalities of the aorta. These include aortic dissection, intramural thrombus, and penetrating atherosclerotic aortic ulcer. AAS can be caused by a lesion on the wall of the aorta that involves the tunica media, often in the descending aorta. It is possible for AAS to lead to acute coronary syndrome. The term was introduced in 2001. Causes can include aortic dissection, intramural hematoma, penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer or a thoracic aneurysm that has become unstable. The potential causes of AAS are life-threatening and present with similar symptoms, making it difficult to distinguish the ultimate cause, though high resolution, high contrast computerised tomography can be used. The condition can be mimicked by a ruptured cyst of the pericardium, ruptured aortic aneurysm and acute coronary syndrome. Misdiagnosis is estimated at 39% and is associated with delays correct diagnosis and improper ...
Im a 42-year old female. Ive had Crohns for 10 years, and was diagnosed with UC for 10 years previous to that. I had my right colon removed in Feb 07. In Oct 07, I had a colonoscopy which revealed 2 rectal ulcers. I took a 7-day course of Flagyl, which caused diarrhea, and probably aggravated the situation. After that I took Cipro, and then started Remicade in Jan 08, and continued until Sept 08 when the Remicade stopped working. The Remicade had slowly reduced the size of the ulcers. I have been in excruciating pain from BMs (4-6 per day, mushy consistency). Sometime the pain would linger all day, making it difficult to walk and sit. My GI doctors next recommendation for treatment is Humira. Im reluctant to switch to this. I would like something that more directly targets the ulcers, not a long-term treatment for Crohns overall, because Im not having flares ...

Apo-Nizatidine: Nizatidine belongs to the family of medications called H2-receptor antagonists. Nizatidine works by reducing the amount of acid secreted by the stomach. Reducing the acid helps to reduce the pain of stomach and intestinal ulcers and heartburn and to assist in the healing of ulcers and damage caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease. Nizatidine is also used to prevent duodenal (intestinal) ulcers in certain circumstances.

There is increasing evidence that genital HSV-2 is facilitating the perseverance of the global HIV-1 epidemic.(12) A recent metaanalysis concluded that HSV-2 infection increases the risk of HIV-1 acquisition approximately 3-fold in both men and women, and that primary HSV-2 infection may have an even greater effect on HIV-1 susceptibility.(18) Among those who become infected with HIV-1, HSV-2 seropositivity and genital ulcer disease resulting from HSV have been associated with significantly higher HIV-1 plasma viral loads.(19,20) A number of observational studies have found that HSV-2 reactivation, including asymptomatic shedding, also increases the concentration of HIV-1 in plasma and genital secretions.(20,21) A prospective study among heterosexual HIV-1 discordant couples in Rakai, Uganda, found that genital ulcer disease in the HIV-1-infected partner, primarily resulting from HSV-2, was associated with a 4-fold increase in the likelihood of HIV-1 transmission.(22) Thus, coinfection with ...

Much research has been done on squamous ulcers including risk factors, but in the last few years the importance of glandular ulceration has been realised. Research is ongoing to try and identify the pre-disposing risk factors and treatment approaches for glandular ulceration.. Diet is a key consideration for the risk of squamous gastric ulcers, but is less significant in glandular disease. As previously stated, the horses stomach secretes acid continuously whether the horse is eating or not, although recent research suggests this reduces overnight. Gastric acidity is very high in an empty stomach and intermittent feeding has been shown quite clearly to induce ulceration. Roughage not only maintains the fibrous mat and pH layers in the stomach, but also stimulates saliva production which neutralises the gastric acid. High starch (grain) diets also stimulate stomach hormones such as gastrin which encourages further acid release. Unfortunately many competition horses require high starch, reduced ...
Clinical management of gastroduodenitis and equine gastric ulcer syndrome grade IV of unknown origin in an Arabian mareA two-year-old Arabian filly was referred with symptons of colic. Clinical examination revealed signs associated with endotoxemia. Ultrasonographic examination of the abdomen demonstrated severe distention of the stomach and distended loops of small intestine with reduced motility. With nasogastric intubation, eight liters of hemorrhagic reflux were retrieved. Gastroscopic examination showed a severe degree of gastric ulceration scored as equine gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS) grade IV. Based on these findings, EGUS and gastroduodenitis (GD) were diagnosed. Initially, the horse was treated using parenteral pantoprazole, which was supplemented by adding enteral ranitidine and sucralfate when the horse ceased refluxing. The horse was discharged eleven days after presentation with a 75%-healing of the gastric ulcers. A control gastroscopic examination was performed thirty days after ...

Treatment of large colon ulcers is a combination of medical therapies, nutritional changes and management. One of the primary initial goals is to reduce the workload for the colon by reducing hay consumption (long fibre) and supplementing with roughage chunks or chopped hay (short fibre) and a complete feed. Medication may be prescribed to aid in healing the ulceration/inflammation (i.e. sucralfate, misoprostol, psyllium).. Probiotics and prebiotics are frequently part of any GI patients treatment plan and are defined as:. Probiotic: living microorganisms that if supplemented in sufficient numbers can be beneficial to the patient (i.e. supplementing during times of stress, disease (diarrhea). Common probiotic strains for horses include: Lactobacillus, Enterococcus, Bifidobacterium and Streptococcus as well as the yeast Saccharomyces.. Prebiotic: a nondigestible food ingredient that stimulates growth of specific organisms. These products are able to survive the enzymes of the stomach/small ...
