Transpapillary Drainage of Persistent Pseudocyst Causing Dysphagia

Authors: Grace E Kim, MD, David Y Lo, MD, FACG, FASGE, AGAF

Abstract: A 47-year-old female with history of chronic alcohol-related pancreatitis presented with dysphagia and mild weight loss. Esophagram demonstrated a stricture of the distal esophagusre sembling a bird's beak (Figure 1). Esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed a nonrelaxing distal esophagus, with balloon dilation unsuccessful in relieving her symptoms. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a pancreatic duct stricture (Figure 2, arrow) with upstream 6 cm × 5.3 cm pseudocyst (Figure 2, asterisk) compressing the distal esophagus. Endoscopic ultrasound did not reveal evidence of a pancreatic mass, and cystgastrostomy was attempted but not feasible

Covid-19 Complicated by Hemorrhagic Necrotizing Pancreatitis: A Case Report

Authors: Raymond Hou, MD, Shruti Koti, BA and Danielle K DePeralta, MD

Abstract: COVID-19 is an infectious disease that has been shown to cause an aggressive, viral pneumonia. In addition to worsening pulmonary function, the COVID-19 illness course may also be complicated by hypercoagulability and varying degrees of organ dysfunction. Here we describe a case of COVID-19 complicated by multi-organ dysfunction and acute necrotizing pancreatitis.

Gastric Xanthoma: To Remove or not to Remove?

Authors: Tarek Nammour, Rayan Rammal and Jana G Hashash

Abstract: A 36-year-old healthy male presented for evaluation of chronic diarrhea and post-prandial epigastric abdominal pain. He denied any other gastrointestinal symptoms. Physical examination was unremarkable. Upper endoscopy showed a single 5 mm sessile polyp in the gastric fundus (Figure 1) and was otherwise unremarkable. The gastric polyp was completely removed and pathology showed foamy macrophages in the lamina propria and mild chronic inflammation (Figure 2). Gastric xanthomas (GX) are rare incidentally encountered non-neoplastic lesions. Incidence rates range from 0.2-0.8%
