Background/Aims: Eosinophilic esophagitis (EE) is a chronic inflammatory disorder characterized by abnormal dense eosinophilic infiltration of esophageal mucosa and results in dysphasia and food impaction. EE is being increasingly recognized in adults. The prevalence is largely unknown. This study was performed to evaluate the detection rate of EE diagnosed based on pathologic criteria and to define the clinical characteristics of EE in Korea. Methods: We reviewed biopsy specimen of the 1,609doi:10.4166/kjg.2010.55.3.162 pmid:20357526 fatcat:pbsmrudd6zgann4zay2um467ju

Clinical information and endoscopic findings were obtained. Results: 7 (0.4%) patients were diagnosed as EE based on pathologic criteria retrospectively. Clinical symptoms were epigastric pain (43%), regurgitation (29%), dyspepsia (14%), and no symptom (14%). Endoscopic findings were whitish exudates or granules (57%), esophageal polyp (29%), and hyperemic change (14%). Two patients received treatment. One patient with bronchial asthma improved after treatment with inhaled corticosteroid, and one patient improved after 8 week proton pump inhibitor therapy. Conclusions: Eosinophilic esophagitis was found in 0.4% of the total esophageal biopsied cases. Our results suggest that Korean patients with eosinophilic esophagitis showed symptoms mimicking gastroesophageal reflux disease and atypical endoscopic findings. Therefore, regardless of the gross appearance of the mucosa, meticulous diagnostic approaches are needed for patients with swallowing difficulty and lack of response to proton pump inhibitor.

Results: We developed ICG with 4 categories and 26 sub-categories, and internal and external audit protocols with 163 and 85 items, respectively. Conclusion: The ICG and audit protocols are valid and feasible; we recommend their utilization as auditing tools, baseline data for the development of national infection control policies, and as educational materials for PCC healthcare workers.
The incidence of pulmonary thromboembolism increases with age. The risk factors of pulmonary thromboembolism include surgery, malignancy, obesity, lupus anticoagulants, and vascular conditions such as deep vein thrombosis. Thromboembolism in younger patients or in unusual locations, the possibility of primary thrombophilic conditions should be considered. Primary thrombophilic states include myeloproliferative disorders (MPD).

The relationship between JAK2 V617F mutation and thrombosis has not been defined. Recently, clinical evidence suggests that this mutation may be variably associated with thrombosis. We present one case of pulmonary thromboembolism in a young patient, who was positive for the JAK2 V617F mutation and did not have MPD.
Purpose: We investigated the etiologies of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and compared urodynamic characteristics between different diagnostic groups in young men with chronic LUTS. Materials and Methods: We reviewed the medical records of 308 men aged 18 to 50 years who had undergone a urodynamic study for chronic LUTS (≥6 months) without symptoms suggestive of chronic prostatitis. Results : The men's mean age was 40.4 (±10.1) years and their mean duration of symptoms was 38.8 (±49.2)doi:10.4111/kju.2014.55.5.341 pmid:24868339 pmcid:PMC4026661 fatcat:f4gbvjyda5gwhosznar5bwgk64

Urodynamic evaluation demonstrated voiding phase dysfunction in 62.1% of cases (primary bladder neck dysfunction [PBND] in 26.0%, dysfunctional voiding [DV] in 23.4%, and detrusor underactivity [DU]/acontractile detrusor [AD] in 12.7%) and a single storage phase dysfunction in 36.4% of cases (detrusor overactivity [DO] in 13.3%, small cystometric capacity in 17.9%, and reduced bladder sensation in 5.2%). Most of the demographic characteristics and clinical symptoms did not differ between these diagnostic groups. Whereas 53.9% of patients with voiding dysfunction had concomitant storage dysfunction, 69.6% of those with storage dysfunction had concomitant voiding dysfunction. Men with DV or DU/AD exhibited lower maximum cystometric capacity than did those with normal urodynamics. Low bladder compliance was most frequent among patients with PBND (10.0%, p=0.025). In storage dysfunctions, men with DO exhibited higher detrusor pressure during voiding than did those with other storage dysfunctions (p<0.01). Conclusions: Because clinical symptoms are not useful for predicting the specific urodynamic etiology of LUTS in this population, urodynamic investigation can help to make an accurate diagnosis and, potentially, to guide appropriate treatment.

Acupuncture treatment is generally regarded as a relatively safe procedure. However, most procedures have some complications and acupuncture treatment is no exception. Reported complications of acupuncture treatment were mostly mild or temporary symptoms, but certain severe adverse effects were also observed. We report here for the first time a case of liver abscess following acupuncture and moxibustion treatment.doi:10.4082/kjfm.2013.34.5.364 pmid:24106589 pmcid:PMC3791344 fatcat:cddsydbw5zhq7ez55ph2fdaefy

Although the benefi cial impact of smoking cessation on cardiovascular disease, pulmonary disease, and smoking-related cancer is well known to health care professionals, skin color changes after stopping tobacco use may be less well recognised. Since skin color contributes to visual attractiveness, most people are interested in skin color. If the positive influence of smoking cessation on skin color can be demonstrated by a noninvasive test, the result could be an effective tool to motivate smokers to stop using tobacco and maintain their abstinence. A recent study showed the skin-related benefits of smoking cessation in a sample of 64 Caucasian women who smoked. 2) In Brief Communication This study was performed to assess changes in skin color over 1 month after smoking cessation. The study population consisted of 49 men who participated in a smoking cessation program from March 2010 to June 2010 at a public health centre in Yangsan, South Korea. Thirty-four men who stop smoking completely were included in our study. Instrumental evaluations of skin color were performed using Mexameter (MX 18; Courage and Khazaka Electronic GmbH) at the beginning of the study and at 1-week and 4-week follow-up visits. Skin color was evaluated by measurement of 2 main color bases-melanin and haemoglobin-with the results expressed as melanin index (MI) and erythema index (EI). Both MI and EI were signifi cantly reduced at the 4-week follow-up visit on all 7 sites measured. We anticipate that desirable effects on skin color after smoking cessation will play a positive role in maintaining smoking abstinence in routine clinical practice.
The purpose of the present study was to investigate multiple anthropometric parameters used to evaluate obesity, particularly visceral abdominal fat area, and various metabolic parameters including malondialdehyde (MDA) as an oxidative stress marker. We evaluated various measures of obesity, including body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), sagittal abdominal diameter, fat percentages using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, visceral fat area (VFA), subcutaneous fat area, multipledoi:10.1155/2015/524291 pmid:26538829 pmcid:PMC4619966 fatcat:o7f7ivx74rautmpsp5wxbsjzbi

We examined relationships between multiple measures of obesity, metabolic markers, and urinary MDA levels and evaluated associations between VFA and urinary MDA. In the visceral obesity group, γ-glutamyl transferase (GGT), uric acid, and urinary MDA levels were significantly higher than in the nonvisceral obesity group (P = 0.008, P = 0.002, and P = 0.018). Urinary MDA (r = 0.357, P = 0.002) and uric acid (r = 0.263, P = 0.027) levels were only significantly positively correlated with VFA among measures of obesity. Urinary MDA, serum GGT, and serum CRP were significantly positively associated with VFA (P = 0.001, P = 0.046, and P = 0.023, resp.), even after adjusting for BMI and WC.
Peripheral facial nerve palsy (FNP) is a mononeuropathy that affects the peripheral part of the facial nerve. Primary causes of peripheral FNP remain largely unknown, but detectable causes include systemic infections (viral and others), trauma, ischemia, tumor, and extrinsic compression. Peripheral FNP in relation to extrinsic compression has rarely been described in case reports. Here, we report a case of a 71-year-old man who was diagnosed with peripheral FNP following endoscopic submucosaldoi:10.5946/ce.2015.48.2.171 pmid:25844347 pmcid:PMC4381146 fatcat:pw7pzwrnzbdw3kjqjs5dr7gga4
