Summary of "Intestinal intussusception as a key sign of Celiac Disease. A pediatric case report."

Intestinal intussusception is the most frequent cause of intestinal obstruction between 6 and 36 months of age, the majority being idiopathic. The association between celiac disease and intestinal intussusception in the pediatric population has been described. We present the case of a 23-month-old male admitted due to a failure to thrive. In his ultrasound study recurrent asymptomatic ileo-ileal invaginations were found.

Case of Irreducible Ileocecal Intussusception Due to Leiomyoma of the Colon.

Intussusception is defined as the telescoping of the proximal segment of the bowel into the distal segment. In most clinical cases, pediatric intussusception is much more common than adult intussuscep...

Second jejunal loop adenocarcinoma associated with celiac disease: the first case report.

Jejunal adenocarcinoma is a very rare disease but the frequency of this rare carcinoma is higher in celiac patients. We report the first case report of a second jejunal loop adenocarcinoma associated ...

Duodenojejunal intussusception secondary to primary gastrointestinal stromal tumor: A case report.

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) in the third portion of the duodenum are rare. Intussusception and obstruction are rarely caused by GISTs because of their tendency to grow in an extraluminal m...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.

A malabsorption syndrome that is precipitated by the ingestion of GLUTEN-containing foods, such as wheat, rye, and barley. It is characterized by INFLAMMATION of the SMALL INTESTINE, loss of MICROVILLI structure, failed INTESTINAL ABSORPTION, and MALNUTRITION.

A complex network of nerve fibers including sympathetic and parasympathetic efferents and visceral afferents. The celiac plexus is the largest of the autonomic plexuses and is located in the abdomen surrounding the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries.

A form of intestinal obstruction caused by the PROLAPSE of a part of the intestine into the adjoining intestinal lumen. There are four types: colic, involving segments of the LARGE INTESTINE; enteric, involving only the SMALL INTESTINE; ileocecal, in which the ILEOCECAL VALVE prolapses into the CECUM, drawing the ILEUM along with it; and ileocolic, in which the ileum prolapses through the ileocecal valve into the COLON.

A diet which is devoid of GLUTENS from WHEAT; BARLEY; RYE; and other wheat-related varieties. The diet is designed to reduce exposure to those proteins in gluten that trigger INFLAMMATION of the small intestinal mucosa in patients with CELIAC DISEASE.
