AbstractAbstract PDF
Esophageal schwannoma is a very rare submucosal tumor. We report successful management of esophageal schwannoma in a 41-year-old man who complained of progressively worsening dysphagia. A huge submucosal tumor was found via endoscopy and a chest computed tomography scan. Esophagectomy was performed with no post-operative complications. Post-operative immunohistochemistry staining showed a positive result for S-100 and negative results for c-kit and CD34. The post-operative mild dysphagia persisted, and the follow-up endoscopic findings revealed anastomosis site stenosis. Approximately 2 months later, we performed endoscopic balloon dilatation. We report herein a case of esophageal schwannoma with reviews.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Pyogenic liver abscess with metastatic septic complications is a rare and serious infectious disease if not treated properly. Pyogenic liver abscesses are caused by bacterial, fungal, or parasitic organisms. Escherichia coli used to be the predominant causative agent, but Klebsiella pneumoniae emerged as a major cause in the 1990s. Liver abscesses are caused by hepatic invasion via many routes, such as, the biliary tree, portal vein, hepatic artery, direct extension, or penetrating trauma. Furthermore, diabetes mellitus and malignant conditions are established important risk factors of K. pneumoniae liver abscesses and of septic metastasis, and several recent studies have asserted that K. pneumoniae liver abscess might be a presentation of occult or silent colon cancer. We report a case of K. pneumoniae liver abscess, metastatic septic pulmonary embolism, and endophthalmitis associated with diabetes and advanced gastric cancer.
