Diagnosis of this disease is difficult and is often confused with chronic peptic ulcer disease. Literature data concerning this challenging diagnosis are(More)

Conversion to gastric bypass is considered as a good alternative with satisfactory long term weight loss without further revisional surgery. Nevertheless, significant morbidity and mortality is still associated with this procedure.(More)

We report a case with a very rare presentation (rupture of esogastric varices complicating biliary cirrhosis secondary to bile duct compression by a pancreatic tumor). After biological and radiological explorations, a duodenopancreatectomy was performed. Diagnosis was(More)
Autoantibodies targeting the melanoma-differentiation-associated gene-5 (MDA5)-encoded ribonucleic acid helicase are associated with clinically amyopathic dermatomyopathy (CADM). Marked systemic inflammation, skin ulcers and severe interstitial lung disease seem frequent. DM treatment consists of immunosuppressants and/or intravenous immunoglobulins, but(More)
Les auteurs rapportent l’observation d’un adénocarcinome de la jonction œsogastrique survenu dans le décours lointain d’une sclérothérapie endoscopique de varices œsophagiennes. L’étude histologique révèle le développement d’au moins deux foyers néoplasiques développés au sein d’une zone fibro-inflammatoire correspondant au site d’injections sclérosantes;(More)
