Gut Fermentation Syndrome, also known as Auto-Brewery Syndrome, is rarely encountered in clinical practice. It was first described in 1952 in Japan, after that, only very few cases have been reported from Japan and several western countries, here we reviewed and report a male patient, who was 30 years old, with progressively digestive tract and intoxication symptoms as well as abnormal liver functions. The blood alcohol concentration of this patient elevated without ethanol intake, and the…

Gut fermentation syndrome: A systematic review of case reports
GFS is a rare but underdiagnosed disease in daily practice, and studies in Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver disease suggest a bacterial origin of endogenous alcohol‐production, which might also be causal micro‐organisms in GFS.

A Case Study of Gut Fermentation Syndrome (Auto-Brewery) with Saccharomyces cerevisiae as the Causative Organism
A case study of a 61 years old male with a well documented case of Gut Fermentation Syndrome verified with glucose and carbohydrate challenges and stool cultures demonstrated the causative organism as Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Intragastrointestinal alcohol fermentation syndrome: report of two cases and review of the literature.
Two patients with frequent attacks of alcohol intoxication following the intake of an ordinary meal are presented and the essential factors of this syndrome were abnormal proliferation of the causative agent, abnormal stagnation of food in the alimentary tract, intake of a carbohydrate diet as the substrate for the alcohol fermentation and low threshold of the patient to alcohol.
Auto-brewery syndrome in a child with short gut syndrome: case report and review of the literature.
The purpose of this article is to decribe one patient with auto-brewery syndrome and discuss its diagnosis and treatment.
Endogenous ethanol fermentation in a child with short bowel syndrome.
The possibility of endogenous ethanol fermentation should be considered in patients with SBS and the diagnosis of auto-brewery syndrome added to the differential diagnosis list for D-lactic acidosis.
Endogenous ethanol production in a patient with chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
The case of the gastrointestinal production of ethanol from Candida albicans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae in a Caucasian man with chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction is reported, and a provocative test, performed by giving amoxicillin plus clavulanic acid associated with the simple sugar-rich diet was followed by the reappearance of ethanol in the blood.
Auto-brewery Syndrome in the Setting of Long-standing Crohn's Disease: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.
Auto-brewery syndrome may be considered in a patient with chronic obstruction or hypomotility presenting with elevated serum ethanol levels in the setting of high carbohydrate intake, although treatment algorithms lack validation.
Endogenous ethanol production and hepatic disease following jejunoileal bypass for morbid obesity.
There was no correlation between the presence of ethanol in the serum and liver histology, when liver biopsy was obtained, postoperatively, and it is unlikely that ethanol production by bacteria in the intestine is of significance in the pathogenesis of liver disease following jejunoileal bypass.
Characterization of gut microbiomes in nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) patients: A connection between endogenous alcohol and NASH
The increased abundance of alcohol‐producing bacteria in NASh microbiomes, elevated blood‐ethanol concentration in NASH patients, and the well‐established role of alcohol metabolism in oxidative stress and, consequently, liver inflammation suggest a role for alcohol‐ producing microbiota in the pathogenesis of NASH.
Rupture of Stomach in African Child
The question arises whether the authors are entitled to impute the death of the first two children to the action of the N antibodies detected in the mother's plasma, and against this suggestion the fact that the agglutinin was active only at room or colder temperatures, but inactive at 370 C.
Autobrewing revisited: endogenous concentrations of blood ethanol in residents of the United Arab Emirates.
The values of blood ethanol concentration as reported in this study indicate that they are far too low to have any forensic significance.
