We assessed the immune status among IBD… (More)

Six cirrhotic patients underwent ultrasound scans in the course of their disease because of clinical deterioration. Ultrasonography revealed the presence of carcinoma as well as dilatation of the portal vein with hypoechogenic masses in its lumen. The presence of thrombi was confirmed by other techniques such as CAT and/or arteriography.
Twenty patients with chronic B hepatitis and viral replication were included in a randomized study comparing the efficacy of sequential treatment with prednisone for 6 weeks followed by alpha-2a interferon (IFN) for 6 months (group A, 9 cases), versus concomitant administration of both drugs (group B, 11 cases). There were no significant differences between… (More)
We present the case of a 25-year-old woman who presented an esophageal ulcer due to doxycycline. We show the endoscopic image of the lesion and analyse the incidence, pathogenic mechanisms, symptomatology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of doxycycline-induced esophageal lesions.
