BACKGROUND AND AIM A characteristic of gastric mucosa infected with Helicobacter pylori is infiltration of inflammatory cells, mainly consisting of neutrophils. The present study aimed to detect neutrophils in homogenates of biopsied gastric mucosa semiquantitatively using the rapid leukocyte strip test, Leukostix. The authors then investigated the(More)
Recently, a method for detecting Helicobacter pylori-specific antigens in the stool (HpSA) has been proposed to be useful clinically. The aim of this study was to determine the accuracy of HpSA for the diagnosis of H. pylori infection, including early assessment after eradication treatment, and the potential for quantitative evaluation of H. pylori in the(More)
We investigated the effect of exogenous mouse α-+β-interferon produced by mouse L cells on the growth of mouse hepatitis virus type 2 (MHV-2) in the liver, the development of liver cell necrosis, and survival in murine fulminant hepatitis induced by MHV-2. Murine fulminant hepatitis was induced in 4-week-old male ICR mice by intraperitoneal inoculation of(More)
Recently, a new disease entity termed gastric adenocarcinoma of fundic gland type (GA-FG) was proposed. We treated five cases of GA-FG with endoscopic submucosal dissection. All tumors were small and located in the upper third of the stomach. Four tumors were macroscopically identified as 0-IIa and one was identified as 0-IIb. Narrow-band imaging with(More)
Here we present a case of acute gastric anisakiasis with rare manifestations such as vanishing gastric tumor and accompanying local lymph node swelling. This report offers some important clues for considering the immunopathological features of gastric infection by Anisakis.
We report a rare case of a small-bowel lymphangioma causing massive gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding that we successfully diagnosed and treated using double-balloon enteroscopy (DBE). An 81-year-old woman suffering from repeated GI bleeding of unknown origin underwent a capsule endoscopy at a previous hospital. She was suspected of having bleeding from the(More)
A 42-year-old woman with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) was admitted to our hospital on April 29, 1999, with complaints of abdominal pain. A diagnosis of intestinal obstruction was reached on the basis of clinical findings and X-ray evidence. A computed tomography scan of the abdomen showed massively enlarged kidneys, especially the(More)
A 71-year-old man with diabetes mellitus visited our hospital with complaints of anorexia and weight loss (12 kg/3 months). He had megaloblastic anemia, cobalamin level was low, and autoantibody to intrinsic factor was positive. He was treated with intramuscular cyanocobalamin, and he was able to consume meals. GAD autoantibody and ICA were positive, and he(More)
A 59-year-old man was admitted to the hospital with acute pancreatitis. The cause was suggested to be a pancreatic tumor based on computed tomography (CT). The pancreatic tumor was 45 mm with an extensive tumor embolism at the trunk of the portal vein and intraductal infiltration of the main pancreatic duct (MPD). The pancreatic tumor was diagnosed as(More)
