A 44-year-old woman presented with right upper abdominal pain and nausea with a 4-day duration. An abdominopelvic CT scan revealed a 2.3-cm sized cystic lesion in the duodenum with inflammatory changes and partial thrombosis in the distal main portal vein. Empirical antibiotics were initiated considering acute duodenal diverticulitis, but the symptoms worsened. Side-viewing duodenoscopy revealed purulent fluid draining spontaneously from a small diverticular opening. After enlarging the opening ...

BACKGROUND The overlap between functional dyspepsia (FD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is associated with more severe gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms and lower quality of life. However, the gender differences in FD-IBS overlap remain unclear. This study aimed to investigate the gender differences in patients with FD-IBS overlap. METHODS Controls and cases were prospectively enrolled from July 2019 to June 2020 at nine tertiary referral centers. The patients underwent esophagogastroduodenosco...

Background/Aims: Regular surveillance colonoscopy after colon cancer resection is recommended for detecting metachronous adenoma and cancer. However, risk factors for metachronous neoplasms have not been fully evaluated. We aimed to assess risk factors for advanced metachronous neoplasms during surveillance colonoscopy after colon cancer resection. Methods: Patients who underwent curative colectomy for nonmetastatic colon cancer between January 2002 and December 2012 were evaluated and followed ...

Background Many patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) in clinical remission frequently complain of bowel symptoms such as increased stool frequency (SF) and rectal bleeding (RB). However, studies on these patient-reported outcomes in patients with inactive UC are limited, especially in Korea. Therefore, we investigated the prevalence and risk factors of bowel symptoms in Korean patients with inactive UC. Methods We investigated the prevalence of bowel symptoms in patients with endoscopically qui...

Goblet cells (GCs) in the intestine are specialized epithelial cells that secrete mucins to form the protective mucous layer. GCs are important in maintaining intestinal homeostasis, and the alteration of GCs is observed in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) and neoplastic lesions. In the Barrett’s esophagus, the presence of GCs is used as a marker of specialized intestinal metaplasia. Various endomicroscopic imaging methods have been used for imaging intestinal GCs, but high-speed and high-cont...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Little is known whether routine prophylaxis against Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia (PJP) is needed in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) on immunosuppression, especially in Asian populations. We, therefore, sought to investigate the incidence and risk factors of PJP in patients with IBD in Korea. METHODS: We investigated the incidence of PJP in patients with IBD and compared the characteristics of IBD patients with PJP episodes (IBD-PJP group) with those of matc...
