[Fals diagnosis of a pancreas tumor]

BAGI Róbert, SZABÓ Tünde, DIBUZ Margit, MONOKI Erzsébet

[INTRODUCTION - Stromal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract are rare and the diagnosis is often not straitforward. CASE REPORT - A case of a 75-year-old male patient with a duodenal stromal tumor is presented. The differential diagnosis was difficult, since the mass mimicked a tumor of the pancreatic head. Authors briefly review of the characteristics of gastrointestinal stromal tumors. CONCLUSION - The role of diagnostic imaging in the diagnosis of stromal duodenal tumors is secondary. Correct diagnosis can be established using immunhistological and electromicroscopis studies, only.]

[Atypical diaphragmatic herniation causing bowel obstruction]

ERDŐSI Éva, MÉSZÁROS Anikó, GREXA Erzsébet

[INTRODUCTION - A 21-year-old woman presented with iatrogenic diaphragmatic hernia causing bowel obstruction. CASE REPORT - Plain abdominal X-ray and barium swallow examinations showed a diaphragmatic hernia causing partial gastric obstruction. Surgery confirmed the radiological diagnosis. The hernia was located atypically at the centre of the diaphragm. CONCLUSION - The cause of the hernia was probably related to a pyogenic necrosis due to subphrenic abscess after cholecystectomy performed 2 years earlier, treated by drainage and repeated surgical interventions.]

Neurocognitive functions in patients with hepatitis C infection

Background - With improving treatment options, more attention is being paid to the neurocognitive symptoms related to hepatitis C infection (HCI). While HCI-related neurocognitive impairments are frequently subclinical, they can influence patients’ quality of life and fitness to work. Objective - The aim of this study was to assess HCI patients’ neurocognitive functions and explore the correlations between disease variables and neurocognitive symptoms. Method - The study was conducted between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2015. All patients with HCI were included in the study who were registered at the Hepatology Outpatient Clinic of Szent István and Szent László Hospitals, met inclusion criteria and volunteered to participate. Patients’ sociodemographic data and medical history were recorded in a questionnaire designed for the study. The 21-item Beck Depression Inventory was used to detect depressive symptoms. Six computerized tests were used to evaluate patients’ neuropsychological functions. Results - Sixty patients participated in the study. In comparison with general population standards, patients demonstrated poorer performance in several neurocognitive tests. Neuropsychological performance was correlated with age, sex, length of time since HCI diagnosis, Fibroscan score and the number of previous antiviral treatments. Conclusions - The study’s main finding is that compared to general population standards, patients with hepatitis C virus-related disease exhibit impaired neuropsychological functioning in visuomotor and visuospatial functions, working memory, executive functions, and reaction time. Executive functions and reaction time were the most sensitive indicators for the length and severity of disease. Deterioration in these functions has a major negative effect on work performance particularly in certain occupations.
