Contrast-Enhanced Endoscopic Ultrasound Guided Fine Needle Aspiration for the Diagnosis of Pancreatic Carcinoma: A Case Report

Case Report

The evaluation of pancreatic head lesions poses a great challenge for gastroenterologists. We report a case of pancreatic carcinoma in a 62-year-old man, who presented with a history of intermittent abdominal pain for one month. Due to its nonspecific clinical presentation and imaging features of CT, MRI and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), diagnosis of pancreatic carcinoma in this patient is challenging

Gastric Schwannoma with Regional Lymphadenopathy Diagnosed by Endoscopic Ultrasonography-Guided Biopsy

Clinical Image

A 71-year-old man, referred to our hospital, presented with a 5×5 cm gastric submucosal tumor with central ulceration at the greater curvature of the lower body as disclosed by upper gas- trointestinal endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS). A contrast-enhanced computed tomography scan of the abdomen revealed a 5×5 cm mass in the stomach and enlargement of regional lymph nodes

A Hepatocelluar Co-Culture System for the Investigation of Cellular-Based Mechanisms of Troglitazone-Induced Liver Injury

Research Article

Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) is a serious issue faced by the pharmaceutical industry, and often leads to drug withdrawal once patients experience drug-induced severe hepatic failure. We developed an in vitro assay system that enables to assess cellular damage and immune reaction responses that ultimately result in DILI using troglitazone as a model drug….

Three Cases of Intentional Ingestions of Intact Cellular Phones Retrieved from the Gastrointestinal Tract

Case Report

Foreign bodies in the gastrointestinal tract are frequently encountered by gastroenterologists. This in- cludes ingestions as well as insertions via the rectum. However, ingestions/insertions of intact cellular phones are rare. We present a case series of small cellular telephones which were removed from the gastrointestinal tract. Two in separate
