Ciprofloxacin-Resistant Bacteria on Pre-Prostate Biopsy Rectal Swab Culture: A Northwest Ohio Study.

Ciprofloxacin is given to patients routinely prior to trans-rectal prostate biopsy. However bacterial resistance to this antibiotic has increased nationally resulting in increased infectious complicat...

Adequate rectal preparation reduces hospital admission for urosepsis after transrectal ultrasound - guided prostate biopsy.

Previous studies have compared infectious outcomes on the basis of whether rectal preparation was performed; however, they failed to evaluate the quality of each rectal preparation, which may have led...

Lymphogranuloma venereum presenting as an ulcer on the tongue.

Oropharyngeal lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) is an uncommon presentation and mainly consists of either asymptomatic infections or enlarged cervical lymphadenopathy. According to cross-sectional studie...

Diagnosis of Hirschsprung's disease in children: Preliminary evaluation of a novel endoscopic technique for rectal biopsy.

The diagnosis of Hirschsprung's disease (HD) relies on anorectal manometry and rectal biopsy. The role of endoscopic biopsy is uncertain for the diagnosis of HD in children. In this study, we evaluate...

Effect of rectal douching/enema on rectal gonorrhoea and chlamydia among a cohort of men who have sex with men on HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis.

Rectal douching/enema (RD) is a common practice among men who have sex with men (MSM) in preparation for sex. RD can break down the rectal mucosal barrier and potentially affect the rectal microbiome....

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inflammation of the COLON that is predominantly confined to the MUCOSA. Its major symptoms include DIARRHEA, rectal BLEEDING, the passage of MUCUS, and ABDOMINAL PAIN.

Conducting a biopsy procedure with the aid of a MEDICAL IMAGING modality.

A form of cutaneous tuberculosis. It is seen predominantly in women and typically involves the NASAL MUCOSA; BUCCAL MUCOSA; and conjunctival mucosa.

A subtype of MICROSCOPIC COLITIS, characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. Microscopic examination of biopsy samples taken from the COLON show larger-than-normal band of subepithelial COLLAGEN.

A subtype of MICROSCOPIC COLITIS, characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. Microscopic examination of biopsy samples taken from the COLON show infiltration of LYMPHOCYTES in the superficial EPITHELIUM and the underlying connective tissue (lamina propria).
