BACKGROUND AND AIMS Identifying the risk factors for extraintestinal manifestations (EIMs) in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) may optimize the therapeutic decision. We aimed to assess the prevalence of EIMs in IBD patients in Romania and to determine the risk factors. METHODS We analyzed 2,626 patients registered in the Romanian IBD Prospect National Registry. We performed a descriptive cross-sectional study to assess the point prevalence of EIMs, calculating global prevalence and analyzing th...
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Despite older-aged individuals accounting for most patients with pancreatic cancer, elderly patients are still underrepresented in the clinical trials. Our study aims to identify treatment differences as well as to analyze survival times in the younger and older patient group. METHODS We evaluated the data of 97 pancreatic cancer patients (72 <75 years; 25 ≥75 years) receiving palliative chemotherapy. Age, comorbidity, body mass index (BMI), tumor localization, metastases, ca...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS Patients with celiac disease (CD) commonly use supplements for perceived health benefits despite scant evidence. We aimed to characterize the prevalence and predictors of probiotic use among CD patients. METHODS We analyzed data from iCureCeliac®; a patient-powered research network questionnaire distributed by the Celiac Disease Foundation. We included adults with self-reported CD who answered questions regarding demographics, diagnosis, symptoms, and treatment. We compared p...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS Although non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is linked to obesity, a proportion of lean subjects also have NAFLD with potentially distinct clinical features. We studied the outcome of lean NAFLD subjects. METHODS 299 consecutive patients (215 male, 84 female, 49.5 ± 13.5years) with biopsy-proven NAFLD and a follow-up of 8.4 years (±4.1; range: 0.9-18.0) were stratified by body mass index (BMI) at the time of liver biopsy: lean (BMI ≤25.0 kg/m, n=38), overweight (BMI 25....
Endosalpingiosis is a rare condition characterized by the presence of benign fallopian tubal-like glandular epithelium derived from Mullerian ducts, usually affecting the serosal surfaces of the pelvis and peritoneum. It is histologically differentiated from endometriosis as endosalpingiosis lacks endometrial stroma. Endosalpingiosis tends to affect older women and has been associated with ovarian serous tumors of low malignant potential. The extragenital endosalpingosis is typically without sym...
A 49-years-old woman with a recent history of tenesmus, constipation, abdominal and rectal pain referred to our Unit. There was no previous history of rectal bleeding or a family history of gastrointestinal diseases. Laboratory tests showed haemoglobin 10.9 g/dl, MCV 72fl, ferritin 18 U/l. Physical examination was normal. The patient underwent a colonoscopy which identified a single ulcer of 2.5 cm of diameter without bleeding signs in the distal rectum, 4 cm from the anal margin. Histopathologi...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS Acute non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Our aim was to evaluate the incidence, management, risk factors and outcomes of acute non-variceal UGIB in a population-based study from Hungary. METHODS The present prospective one-year study involved six major community hospitals in Western Hungary covering a population of 1,263,365 persons between January 1 and December 31, 2016. Data collection included demogr...

Background and Aims: The fatty liver index (FLI) is a simple and non-invasive method for the diagnosis of fatty liver disease with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) as well as liver-related mortality. We examined the association between FLI and 10-year CVD risk as determined by the Framingham risk score. Methods: This cross-sectional study included 7,240 individuals aged 30 to 69 years who underwent a health examination between 2015 and 2017. The FLI was calculated using an algor...
