Esophageal lesions are rarely seen in patients with intestinal Behçet's disease. Three patients with esophageal lesions (dissection of esophageal mucosa, esophageal ulcer, esophageal varices) were observed among 15 patients with intestinal Behçet's disease or non-specific simple ulcer (1974-1984). Two-thirds of these fifteen patients had fully developed or(More)
Five hundred eighty-two patients with colorectal adenomas or early cancers were polypectomized from 1974 to 1985. In 100 patients, total colonoscopy was performed more than twice after the initial polypectomies. These patients were divided into three groups: group A patients underwent total colonoscopy at 1-year intervals; group B patients underwent total(More)
A man was admitted to our hospital because of intestinal reddish bleeding. Colonic varices were found at the cecum by colonoscopy.

We describe a 23-year-old man with protein-losing enteropathy, iron deficiency anemia, and recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding. The patient eventually developed disseminated intravascular coagulation, portal vein thrombosis, and extensive small bowel infarction. The autopsy showed multiple telangiectases in the intestines, mesentery, liver, gallbladder,(More)
Serum sialic acid was measured to evaluate the activity of Crohn’s disease. The sialic acid levels of patients with Crohn’s disease in remission (CRP 0.0 mg/dl) were significantly higher than those of healthy subjects and postoperative patients with Crohn’s disease. In patients in remission, serum sialic acid was significantly correlated with hemoglobin,(More)
Endoscopic appearance of the gastrointestinal tract of a patient with severe hemorrhagic enteric graft-vs.-host disease (GVHD) is presented. A 29-year-old man with chronic myelogenous leukemia suffered from severe enteric GVHD after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. Endoscopy showed hemorrhagic ulceration of the upper jejunum, terminal ileum, and(More)
