Ulcerative ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease characterized by the presence of continuous, uniform, gapless lesions of healthy mucous membrane extending integrally from the anus over a variable portion of the colon. It is a multisystemic pathology for which we will describe one of its hepatic manifestations, primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). We present here the story of a patient, a carrier of the Breast Cancer type 1 gene mutation (BRCA1), who initially presented with epigastric and peri-umbilical abdominal pain associated with several episodes of bloody diarrhea. The initial assessment made it possible to diagnose BRCA1 and the fortuitous discovery of biliary tract stenosis of an undetermined nature. Further investigations led to the conclusion that there was a strong presumption of UC associated with PSC or even cholangiocarcinoma (CCA). In the course of treatment, cancer of the gallbladder was also detected. This clinical case makes it possible to review, in the light of recent publications, the pathophysiological link existing between UC and PSC. This article also presents an in-depth analysis of this entity with malignant potential that can affect different sites of the digestive tract, and its own management, which is the subject of new recommendations.

Alcoholic hepatitis is a syndrome defined primarily by the clinical onset of jaundice in patients with a concomitant heavy consumption of alcoholic beverages. This pathology is managed by alcohol withdrawal with a 30-day survival rate of 90 %. For patients with severe alcoholic hepatitis, with a Maddrey score greater than 32 (taking into account bilirubin and prothrombin time), treatment with corticosteroids is discussed provided that a possible infection can be sufficiently excluded or adequately managed. The administration of corticosteroids is continued for 28 days if the Lille score, calculated after 7 days of treatment, is favourable (inferior to 0.45), leading to a survival rate of 80-90 %. However, if the Lille score is unfavourable (superior to 0.45), the prognosis is bad, with a survival of only 25-30 % at 6 months. Special attention needs to be paid to assure a sufficient caloric intake during the treatment period for a successful management. Liver transplantation, previously prohibited for this indication, can be discussed under certain circumstances. However, the success of treatment is contingent upon the alcohol withdrawal. Innovative drugs are currently under investigation to improve the prognosis of this condition. [less ▲]

In Belgium as in many other countries, alcohol is one of the leading causes of adult liver transplantation. Liver transplantation for terminal liver failure due to excessive alcohol intake raises clear ethical issues concerning the use of grafts to save patients suffering from a self-inflecting affection. Alcoholic liver disease is one of the best indications for liver transplantation, with excellent results in terms of length of survival and post transplantation quality of life, if this transplantation is proposed by a multidisciplinary team in a patient able to and helped by a supporting family and social environment.

Abstract The association of primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) and autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is known as an overlap syndrome (OS). OS can also be described in the setting of concomitant presence of AIH and PSC. These diseases can in some cases be associated with ulcerative colitis. In this case report we describe, to our knowledge, the first case in the literature of a young Caucasian male suffering from ulcerative colitis and an overlap syndrome consisting of an association between PSC-AIH, with the concomitant presence of a membranous glomerulonephritis.

Fibrosing mediastinitis is a rare condition characterized by an excessive growth of dense fibrous tissue within the mediastinum. The etiology of the disease is most often a fungal infection and may in some cases be idiopathic. We present the case of a patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) suffering from fibrosing mediastinitis of undetermined origin and in whom the diagnosis was established by histopathological analysis after mediastinoscopy.
