UGIE of a patient with dysphagia.


1) What in the Endoscopic Diagnosis?

1)Schatzki ring

Oesophageal mucosal ring in the lower


oesophagus/GOJ. Produces non-progressive dysphagia
for solids. Mostly congenital. Endoscopy itself (with a
large diameter scope) /Dilatation is therapeutic

Ba swallow of Schatzki ring

This primigravida of 8/52 P.O.A. presented with haematemesis.


2) What is the diagnosis?

2) Mallory Weiss tear from the cardiac


aspect(retroflexed view)
.
Usually involves the gastric mucosa near the squamo-columnar
mucosal junction. Sometimes healed by the time when
endoscopy happens. Bleeding stops spontaneously in most
cases but it may be profuse.
When it causes complete rupture of the distal end of the
oesophagus (usually on the left side), the condition is referred
to as Boerhaave's syndrome.
Continued bleeding may respond to Endoscopic clips,
vasopressin therapy or angiographic embolization. Surgery is
rarely needed.

This patient presented with Nausea and Vomiting associated with an


epigastric mass.
3.1)What is the diagnosis?
3.2) What is the name given for this dermatological condition?
3.3) To which kind of psychiatric disorders does it fall into?

3.1) Trichobezoar
3.2) Trichotillomania-pulling of hair
3.3) Obsessive-Compulsive disorder(OCD)
Associated with the psychiatric conditiontrichophagia
Most trichobezoars are difficult to remove
endoscopically and surgical removal is
needed
Other bezoars- Pharmacobezoars,
Phytobezoars
Most patients have psychiatric
disturbances/ mental retardation
Rapunzel syndrome- A trichobezoar
extending into terminal ileum
Endoscopic appearance of a
trichobezoar

This patient was referred for UGIE because his mother died of a
breast cancer.
4) What is the diagnosis?

4)Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome

Hamartomatous polyps.
Most common in small bowel 60-90%
esp jejunum. Stomach 15-30%, Colon
50%
50% asymptomatic at diagnosis.
Can present with bleeding , obstruction,
intussusception(in upto 70%).

This biopsy specimen belonged to a patient with T1DM and loose


motions for last 10 years.
5.1)What is the diagnosis?
5.2) Name another endocrine association
5.3) Name a neoplastic association of this condition

5.1)
5.2)

Coeliac disease(gluten enteropathy)


Thyroiditis

5.3)Coeliac disease leads to an increased risk of both adenocarcinoma and


lymphoma of the small bowel (enteropathy-associated T-cell
lymphoma (EATL) or other non-Hodgkin's lymphomas)

Biopsy of small bowel showing coeliac disease


manifested by blunting of villi, crypt hyperplasia,
and lymphocyte infiltration of crypts

This patient suffered a brainstem stroke 1 year ago, underwent


an endoscopic procedure 2 weeks after the stroke.
6.1) What is the current endoscopic finding you see here?
6.2) Name 2 other indications for the endoscopic procedure above

6.1) Buried bumper syndrome of a Percutaneous Endoscopic


Gastrostomy(PEG) tube
6.2)

This patient underwent an endoscopic procedure to investigate


malena prior to this intervention.
7.1) What is this intervention?
7.2) Name the Endoscopic procedure patient underwent.
7.3) Identify A and B

7.1) Laparoscopy
7.2) Double balloon enteroscopy and endoscopic tattooing
7.3) A-Meckel diverticulum
B-Endoscopic tattoo

This blood culture of this patient grew an organism.


8.1) What is the endoscopic diagnosis?
8.2) What is the most likely organism in the blood culture?
8.3) What complication may account for this clinical presentation?

8.1) Colonic carcinoma


8.2) Streptococcus bovis
8.3) Infective endocarditis

Colonoscopy finding of a patient with iron deficiency anaemia


9.1) What is the diagnosis
9.2) Name the cardiac pathology which is associated with this lesion
9.3) Explain the mechanism of bleeding in from these lesions in
condition mentioned in 9.2

9.1) Angiodysplasia of the colon


9.2) Aortic stenosis
9.3) Acquired von Willebrand disease seen in aortic
stenosis
The combination of a narrow opening and a higher flow rate in aortic
stenosis results in an increased shear stress on the blood.
This higher stress causes von Willebrand factor to unravel in the same way
it would on encountering an injury site.
As part of the normal homeostasis of the blood, when von Willebrand factor
changes conformation into its active state, it is degraded by its natural
catabolic enzyme ADAMTS13, rendering it incapable of binding the collagen
at an injury site.
As the quantity of von Willebrand factor in the blood decreases, the rate of
bleeding dramatically increases.

This patient presented with low grade fever and right upper quadrant
pain for 5 days. Serum total Billirubin and Alkaline phosphatase were
normal and U.S.S abdomen was negative on 2 occasions on day 1
and day 5. Subsequently he underwent this investigation.
10.1) What is this investigation?
10.2) What is the diagnosis?

10.1) Cholescintigraphy (HIDA scan)


10.2) Acute cholecystitis
This nuclear medicine examination uses a technetium labelled hepatic
iminodiacetic acid (HIDA), which is injected intravenously and is then
taken up selectively by hepatocytes and excreted into bile. If the cystic duct
is patent, this agent will enter the gallbladder, leading to its visualization
without the need for concentration. The HIDA scan is also useful for
demonstrating patency of the common bile duct and ampulla. Visualization
of contrast within the common bile duct, gallbladder, and small bowel occurs
within 30 to 60 minutes. The test is positive if the gallbladder does not
visualize, which is invariably due to cystic duct obstruction, usually from
edema associated with acute cholecystitis or an obstructing stone
Cholescintigraphy has a sensitivity and specificity of approximately 97 and
90 percent, respectively.
The sensitivity and specificity of ultrasonography for detection of gallstones
are in the range of 84 and 99 percent, respectively
