Infectious Diarrhea

The presence of blood indicates a pathogenic invader, which may include any of the

Campylobacter - Is the MCC of food poisoning.

Salmonella - Transmitted by chicken and eggs

Vibrio Parahemolyticus Associated with infected seafood

E. Coli There are many different types, which include:

E. Coli 0157:H7 ! MC associated with haemolytic uremic syndrome(via effects
of verotoxin). Look for undercooked beef in the history.
Vibrio vulnificus: Look for shellfish in a person w/ liver disease
Shigella: Secretes Shiga toxin, which is also associated with reactive arthritis
Yersinia: Rodents are natural reservoirs, transmission via veggies, milk-derived
products, and meat
Amebic: Perform three ova & stool parasite exams or serologic testing. Treat
with metronidazole


Best initial test ! fecal leukocytes

Most accurate test ! stool culture


Mild disease! Keep the patient hydrated, this usually resolves on its own

Severe disease ! Fluoroquinolones are the treatment of choice. Severe disease is
defined as presence of any of the following (Blood, fever, abdominal pain, hypotension
and tachycardia)

Non-Bloody Diarrhea:

Non-bloody diarrhea may still be d/t the above pathogens, which can all present
with non-bloody diarrhea.
NO BLOOD in diarrhea will exclude all of the following, which never have

1. Viruses ! Rotavirus, Norwalk virus (Norovirus)
2. Giardia ! Camping/hiking. Look for bloating/flatus/steatorrhea, stool ELISA is
diagnostic test of choice, treatment involves metronidazole.
3. Staph Aureus ! Presents with vomiting in addition to diarrhea. This resolves
4. Bacillus Cereus ! Is associated with eating refried rice. This resolves
5. Cryptosporidiosis! HIV (+) patient with a CD4 count <100. Diagnosis with
acid-fast stain. There is no proven treatment except to raise the CD4 count w/
antiretroviral therapy.
6. Scombroid! Histamine fish poisoning, has fastest onset of poisoning, which is
around 10 min after eating infected tuna, mackerel, or mahi-mahi. Patient has
vomiting, diarrhea, wheezing, and flushing. Treatment involves giving the
patients antihistamines such as diphenhydramine.

Antibiotics Associated Diarrhea (C. Difficile)

Develops several days to weeks after use of antibiotics such as Clindamycin, which is
the most common cause. There can be both blood and fecal leukocytes with C.Difficile-
related colitis.


Best initial test is a stool toxin assay.



The best initial therapy is metronidazole

Chronic Diarrhea

The most common cause of chronic diarrhea is lactose intolerance


Removal of milk products will both allow for diagnosis and treatment



Diarrhea caused by malabsorption is always associated with weight loss
Fat malabsorption is associated with steatorrhea, which leads to oily/greasy stools
that float on the water in the toilet and are foul smelling

The common causes of fat malabsorption are as follows:

1. Celiac Disease
2. Tropical Sprue
3. Chronic Pancreatitis
4. Whipples Disease

All forms of malabsorption are associated with:

Hypocalcemia from vitamin D deficiency, which may lead to osteoporosis
Oxalate overabsorption and oxalate kidney stones
Easy bruising and elevated PT/INR due to vitamin K malabsorbtion
Vitamin B12 malabsorption from either destruction of terminal ileum or loss of
pancreatic enzymes that are necessary for B12 absorption


The best initial test is the sudan stain
The most sensitive is a 72-hr fecal fat test

Celiac Disease

Presents with iron malabsorption and microcytic anemia



Best initial diagnostic test is checking for antigliadin, antiendomyseal, and
antitissue transglutaminase antibodies
The most accurate test is a small bowel biopsy

*bowel wall biopsy is always necessary even w/ antibody confirmation, in order to
exclude bowel wall lymphomas.


Elimination of oats, wheat, barley from the diet

Tropical Sprue

Patient will have a history of being in a tropical location, and presents the same way as
celiac disease.


Small bowel biopsy is the best test to perform

Tetracycline or TMP-SMX for 3-6 months

Whipples Disease

A GI infection presenting with arthralgias, rash, diarrhea, and anemia


The most accurate test is a small bowel biopsy that shows PAS (+) organisms
Can also do a PCR of the stool looking for T. Whippelii


Penicillin, Tetracycline, or TMP-SMX for 12 months


Chronic Pancreatitis

History of alcoholism is usually present
Lipase and amylase levels are likely normal since these wont drop until the
pancrease is calcified and fibrosed.
Fat soluble vitamins are not absorbed


The best initial test is an abdominal XRAY or a CT without contrast
The most accurate testis secretin stimulation testing (normal person releases large
amount of bicarbonate-rich pancreatic fluid).


Involves the administration of pancreatic enzymes by mouth.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Syndrome where the patient experiences an alteration in bowel habits
(constipation alternating with diarrhea)
Pain is usually relieved after a bowel movement


Testing may include colonoscopy, xrays, blood tests, but all are negative


The best initial treatment is fiber supplementation, which helps by bulking the
stool and relieving pain
If fiber doesnt work, can add antispasmotic agents to try and relax the bowel

If these fail to work, TCAs can be tried


Hamartomas and hyperplastic polyps are benign
Dysplastic polyps are malignant

** The most important thing to know for colon cancer screening is when and what to do
for the patient

Diagnostic Testing:

General Population:

1. Begin screening at 50yr
2. Colonoscopy q10yrs
3. Sigmoidoscopy q 3-5yrs
4. Fecal occult blood testing yearly
5. Barium enema

The best method of screening for colon cancer is performing a colonoscopy every 10yrs

One family member with colon cancer requires colonoscopy starting at 40yr or 10yr
before age of family member who had cancer.

Three family member, two generations, one premature(<50) require a colonoscopy every
1-2yr starting at 25yrs. This is a lynch syndrome or HNPCC


Familial Adenomatous Polyposis(FAP)

Start screening sigmoidsocopies at age 12
Perform colectomy if polyps are found

Gardners syndrome

This presents with benign bone tumors known as osteomas, as well as other soft
tissue tumors. There is no additional screening indicated for Gardners syndrome

Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome

This presents with a patient who has melanotic spots on the
There are hamartomatous polyps throughout the small bowel and colon
There is a lifetime risk of colon cancer is 10%.
No extra screening recommended

Juvenile Polyposis

There are multiple extra hamartomas in the bowel.
No increased risk of colon cancer from hamartomas
No extra screening recommended
If dysplastic polyps are found, perform repeat colonoscopy in 3-5 years


Start at 50, then

Includes Diverticulosis and Diverticulitis


Incredibly common in older Americans and it most commonly caused by a low-fiber,
high-fat diet

Signs and Symptoms:

LLQ abdominal pain
Lower GI bleed


The most accurate test is a colonoscopy
Best diagnostic test is an abdominal CT scan


High-fiber diet low in saturated fats


Is a complication of diverticulosis and presents with:

LLQ abdominal pain
Elevated white cell count in blood



Involves the use of antibiotics. Metronidazole and ciprofloxacin most commonly

Gastrointestinal Bleeding

Red blood ! lower GI bleed, rarely a very acute upper GI bleed can be red blood

Black stool ! upper GI bleed (Proximal to Ligament of Trietz). Black stool usually is
100ml or more blood.

Heme (+) brown stool ! can occur from as little as 5-10ml of blood loss

Coffee ground emesis ! needs very little gastric, esophageal, or duodenal blood loss, as
little as 5-10ml.

**The most important thing to do in acute GI bleeding is to determine if there is
hemodynamic instability

Treatment for GI bleeds:

IV fluids if it is a large bleed
Correction of anemia or other lab abnormalities

Variceal Bleeding

Look for alcoholic with hematemesis and/or liver disease
Other clues are the presentation of splenomegaly, low platelets, and spider
angiomas or gynecomastia




First thing to do is add octreotide which decreases portal hypertension

thing to do is an upper GI to band the variceals
If banding fails, a shunt between the portal vein and the hepatic vein should be

Sources of Bleeding

Upper GI:

Ulcer disease

Lower GI:

Diverticular disease
Ischemic colitis

Diagnosing sources of bleeding:

Technetium bleeding scan (tagged red cells) detects source of bleed
Angiography is an excellent preoperative test because it localizes the site of
Capsule endoscopy should be done when the other methods fail. This is a small
camera that is swallowed and allows for visualization of the small intestine

Acute Mesenteric Ischemia

Presents with a sudden onset of severe abdominal pain with a normal appearing exam (ie.
The pain is out of proportion to the findings on exam)


The most accurate test is an angiography


Surgical resection of ischemic bowel

Other GI Conditions


Initial management of constipation is hydration and fiber supplements

There is usually no clear etiology, for clinical purpose must know possible causes and be
able to treat underlying reason.

1. Dehydration: look for signs of dehydration, BUN:Cr of >20:1
2. CCBs
3. Narcotic medication use/sedatives
4. Hypothyroidism: TSH, T4
5. Diabetes
6. Ferrous sulphate iron replacement
7. Anticholinergic medications

Dumping syndrome

This is a rare disorder related to prior gastric surgery (Often for ulcer disease)
This is a disorder where stomach contents are quickly passed through to the
intestine, and it then draws fluid into the GI, causing an initial HYPERglycemia
follow by a reactive HYPOglycemia

Signs and Symptoms:

Shaking chills



Small and frequent meals

Diabetic Gastroparesis

Longstanding DM impairs neural supply of bowel, there is impairment of normal
Patient will present with bloating and constipation as well as diarrhea


Clinical + history of diabetes


Erythromycin (increases motilin in the gut, thus increasing motility) and

Acute Pancreatitis

Presents (classically) as severe midepigastric pain and tenderness that is associated with
alcoholism and/or gallstones


Lipase (more specific) and amylase


Keep patient NPO
Give IV fluids
Give pain medications



All pts present in a very similar way:

1. Jaundice
2. Fatigue
3. Weight loss
4. Dark urine from bilirubin in the urine

*Hepatitis B and C are more likely to pres with serum-sickness phenomenom like joint
pain, urticaria, and fever.

No definitive treatment is available for any form of acute hepatitis.


Conjugated bilirubin levels (will be elevated)
Viral Hepatitis gives elevated ALT level
Drug-induced hepatitis is associated with increased levels of AST
In pregnancy, if a patient gets hepatitis E this can be fatal
Most accurate tests for hep A, C, D, and E, the confirmatory test is serology
IgM levels acutely rise, and IgG levels rise in the recovery phase.
Surface antigens, core antibody, e-antigen, or surface antibodies are only
associated w/ hepatitis B.

Hepatitis B testing:

The first test to become abnormal in acute hep B infection is the surface antigen.
Elevation in ALT, e-antigen, and symptoms all occur after the appearance of
hepatitis B surface antigen.
Chronic hep B gives the same serologic pattern as acute hep B, but it is based on
persistence of the surface antigen beyond six months.


*Tests for active viral replication: hep B DNA polymerase = e-antigen = hep B PCR
for DNA, all equal the same thing.

Hepatitis C testing:

Best initial test is hep C antibody, this wont tell the level of activity of the virus
Most accurate test Hep C PCR for RNA, also is the most accurate way of testing
response to therapy
Liver biopsy is the most accurate for finding out the severity of the disease

Treatment of Chronic Hepatitis

Chronic hep B: The pt w/ surface antigen, e-antigen, and DNA polymerase or PCR for
DNA is the pt most likely to benefit from antiviral therapy. Look for >6mnth of positive

Treat chronic hep B w/ following single agents:
1. Lamivudine
2. Adefovir
3. Entecavir
4. Telbivudine
5. Interferon (has the most adverse effects)

Chronic hep C: Combine interferon with ribavirin (MC adverse effect is anemia)


Hep A and B vaccination is now universally done in children.

For adults the strongest indication for both types are the following:

1. Chronic liver disease
2. Household contacts
3. MSM (men who have sex with men)
4. Blood product recipients on a chronic basis
5. Injection drug users


Specific indications:

HEP A ! travelers
HEP B ! health care workers and pts on dialysis.

*there is no vaccine or postexposure prophylaxis for hep C


No matter what the cause may be, it will have a number of features:

1. Edema due to low oncotic pressure (treat with spironolactone + diuretics)
2. Gynecomastia
3. Palmar erythema
4. Splenomegaly
5. Thrombocytopenia due to splenic sequestration
6. Encephalopathy, which should be treated with lactulose
7. Ascites - Treat with spironolactone
8. Esphageal varices - Propranolol will prevent bleeding, perform banding if bleed


Perform paracentesis for all pts with ascites if a new ascites, pain, fever, or tenderness are


Test the fluid albumin level
SAAG > 1.1 is consistent with portal hypertension from cirrhosis


CHRONIC LIVER DISEASE (Cause of cirrhosis)

Alcoholic cirrhosis

Is a diagnosis of exlusion. Must exclude all other causes of cirrhosis and look for a
history of longstanding alcohol abuse. Treat as described above for cirrhosis

Primary Biliary Cirrhosis

Presents most commonly in a middle-aged woman complaining of itching. Xanthalasmas
may be found on exam. Also look for a history of other autoimmune disorders


The best initial test is elevated alkaline phosphatase + normal bilirubin level
The most accurate test is presence of antimitochondrial antibody


Ursodeoxycholic acid

Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis:

80% of those with PSC also have IBD


Signs and Symptoms:

Elevated bilirubin levels
Elevated alkaline phosphatase


Most accurate test is ERCP
Anti-smooth muscle antibody, and (+) ANCA

Ursodeoxycholic acid

Wilsons Disease

Involves cirrhosis and liver disease in a person with a choreiform movement disorder
and neuropsychiatric abnormalities.

Signs and Symptoms:

Extrapyrimidal symptoms
Kayser-Fleischer rings around the cornea is pathognomonic for Wilsons disease


Decreased serum ceruloplasmin




Most often from a genetic disorder resulting in overabsorbtion of iron
Iron deposits throughout the body, most commonly in the liver.

Signs and Symptoms:

Darkening of the skin (Bronze diabetes)
Cardiomyopathies (Restrictive)


Best initial test is serum study showing elevated serum iron and ferritin with a low
TIBC. Iron saturation will be grossly elevated
The most accurate test is a MRI or liver biopsy



Autoimmune Hepatitis

Most often presentation is a young woman who has another autoimmune disease


Best initial test is ANA and anti-smooth muscle antibodies
The most accurate test is a biopsy of the liver



Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)


Strong association with obesity, diabetes, and hyperlipidemia


Best initial test is liver studies that show ALT>AST
The most accurate test is a liver biopsy that shows fatty infiltration
