Read article Background: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is more common in subjects with obesity and diabetes mellitus (DM). Hypothyroidism is a risk factor for development of NAFLD. The study was done to assess the association of hypothyroidism with NAFLD and severity of NAFLD.

Methods: The study was carried out on 50 NAFLD patients. Among them 25 patients had no hypothyroidism and 25 patients had hypothyroidism. Histological diagnosis of NAFLD (non-NASH & NASH), based on NAFLD activity score (NAS) was done. Stages of fibrosis was evaluated by separate fibrosis sco....[more]

Read article Safe hepatectomy for the paracaval portion of the caudate lobe is technically demanding. We propose central hepatectomy using the hilar approach for resection of the paracaval portion.The right liver with the caudate lobe was totally mobilized from the inferior vena cava. Central hepatectomy with or without middle hepatic vein (MHV) resection was performed by dividing the right anterior and left medial sections vertically toward the inferior vena cava.
The bilateral Glissonian pedicles were widely exposed (hilar approach), and the liver parenchyma including the paracaval portion ....[more]

Article DOI: 10.21614/sgo-24-4-210
Read article A 66-year-old man was found to have a 4 cm mass in the distal transverse colon that was biopsied on a diagnostic colonoscopy performed for occult anemia. Pathology showed incomplete removal of a tubulovillous adenoma with high-grade dysplasia. The patient underwent surgical resection, with final pathology demonstrating two 5 mm foci of large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) within a background of tubulovillous adenoma, and 1 of 8 positive lymph nodes.
Poorly-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are termed neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC), and are extremely rare. Colore....[more]

Images in Clinical Medicine, Aug 2019
Article DOI: 10.21614/sgo-24-4-215
Read article Primary gastric squamous cell carcinoma is a very rare cancer whose mechanism has not been clearly elucidated. To date, less than 100 cases have been reported. However, only one case was reported to be presented as a subepithelial tumor. A 69-year-old woman complained of melena, dizziness for one month, and anorexia for two months. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a large bleeding subepithelial tumor in the upper body of the stomach.
Endoscopic biopsy diagnosed with gastric squamous cell carcinoma. In abdominal computed tomography (CT), large, poorly heterogeneous enhancing, i....[more]
