The case of a patient with malignant degeneration of a solitary abdominal schwannoma and endobronchial metastasis is presented. The patient presented clinically with dyspnea referable to her lung mass, anorexia, and night sweats. The lung mass, initially diagnosed as a large-cell undifferentiated carcinoma, was later found to be histologically identical to(More)
Gut permeability has been studied in patients with either food intolerance or abnormal gut fermentation as well as in normal subjects. Permeability was measured by polyethylene glycol absorption, and the reasons for this choice of probe are discussed. Results show that both symptomatic groups have statistically very highly significant deviations from the(More)
A laboratory study was performed comparing the patterns of urinary amino acid excretion in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) with a control group of subjects without fatigue or allergy. Fifteen out of 21 patients in the CFS Group showed abnormal patterns with both reduced and increased excretion of some acids. In contrast, the control subjects(More)
Gut fermentation in the colon is a normal phenomenon whereby soluble non-starch polysaccharides are metabolized to short-chain fatty acids. Abnormal fermentation may be associated with clinical symptoms and is generally assumed to take place in the small bowel. It may be established by ethanol production after a sugar challenge in the fasting subject, which(More)
Changes in histidine excretion reflect histidine conservation and thus the level of histamine secretion. Low levels were found in untreated patients with atopic (type A) allergy. However, levels in food intolerance (type B allergy) and fungal-type dysbiosis were also low (pv0.001 for each group compared with nonallergic controls). There were no differences(More)
Normal gut fermentation is the process whereby non-starch-soluble polysaccharides are metabolized in the large bowel to provide nutrients. It is well represented in the literature. Abnormal fermentation however can also be present. A test for this demonstrates the production of trace amounts of ethanol, measurable in blood. Beta-alanine production, measured(More)
Purpose: Patients with gut dysbioses are clinically difficult to distinguish from those with food intolerance. The variety known as fungal-type is associated with the generation of small amounts of ethanol in the blood. A recent study has shown abnormalities of histidine metabolism. In view of this, gastric function was studied. This also provided data on(More)
